Herbs and Garden

Finally, after such a long time, I can rest for a while. The full week at college is over and slowly I have to get ready for the exam session. But until then, there are some free days and I made myself some time to write and to take care of my little garden. This morning I had a surprise seeing that my plants grew so much and I was really excited about them. I took some photos last week and I tried to publish a new article, but unfortunetly I didn’t have enough time. So here is the article and I’m glad that I’m publishing it now, because, meanwhile, the Lilium flower bloomed.

I bought a bulb from the store and after three months I’ve got this. On the label it was written „Lilium Glossy Wings” so I made a little research. „Introduced in 1992, L.A. hybrids are a cross between longiflorum lilies and Asiatic hybrids. The longiflorum traits produce more of a trumpet shape and provide a longer vase life. The Asiatic traits are responsible for the warmer flower colors and the upright calyx, which causes the flower heads to face upward.” The good thing about this flower is that it is perennial, which means it lives more than two years.

So here is the basil (Ocimum Basilicum). I just can’t wait for flowers that I will use for tea. Also I found this nice video about the „time lapsed” growth of a basil.

Unfortunetly the marigold didn’t bloom yet. I’m still waiting for gold flowers to arrive.

  1. Wow! So nice!! Your flowers have really grown so much!!! :’) Really happy when I see the progress of growing flowers <3<3 I bet that the Lilium flower smells really nice!!

    1. Thank you! Unfortunately, it was really disappointing to observe that Lilium flowers don’t smell. It’s a hybrid and humans can’t do better than nature. 😀

  2. I too have a garden filled with Lilly’s. I like to buy perennials and dividing them to make my garden grow. It is much cheaper on the wallet than buying annuals every year; though I do get a few to fill in the spaces.
