Too Sexy !

Remember the song, "I'm too sexy for my. . ." Maybe these dizzy lilies are just too beautiful. Look at this slightly imperfect blossom.(Thanks to the Orioles.) The color , the shape, those beauty spots are all meant for attraction. It is unbelievably gorgeous, and you can't even smell the breathtaking fragrance.

It is after all what flowers live for, seduction, pollination and reproduction. After the week these blossoms have had , I'm so impressed to see them open. One has to admire their determination.

I myself have to resist the temptation to get a whiff of that amazing fragrance before I leave for work. Gardeners who grow lilies are often seen out in public with pollen on their noses.
