Lilies in my garden
The Monsoon season is in full swing and there are lilies everywhere in my garden. The spider lilies make an attractive clump with their brilliant white flowers.
I don't know the name of this lily with large, sword shaped leaves. Every barber's shop has this lily in front !!
This sweet smelling lily is called Sudarshan in India. It has pink stripes on the underside. It is also known as Milk-and-Honey lily.
The Amazon lily has a heady perfume. Every part of the plant is poisonous.
