Garden delights

Blooms of summer

I have to remind myself about the enjoyment part of gardening. Every day I mentally say “what needs to be done in the garden today?” I spend a lot of time doing things in the garden. For example, yesterday I potted up 25 or more chrysanthemums to their final pots. You will see them next fall. Right now my first flush of roses needs to be deadheaded, but today I am a bit under the weather so I just went out to enjoy the flowers. A rare pleasure.

Lily help needed

Last year at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show I purchased an Asiatic Lily called “Original Love” from B & D Lilies, one of the vendors. It made a beautiful flower display but now I am not sure what to do with the bulb. Should it be divided? Should I just plant it in a bigger pot or plant it in the ground? This is my first lily. See the photo below and let me know what you think.
