  •  Very pretty! Their foliage is quite different, (4+ / 0-)

    but the flowers, except for being a little more pale, are almost identical to mine.  There are hundreds of lilies, so who knows.

      but they are really, really orange in real life.

        realistic, so with what you said, the flowers may be just about identical.  But the foliage is radically different, and the flowers on mine are multiple on the same stalk, and these appear to be single.  Still, a beautiful flower.

        By the way, I updated the post to show you at "it" for tomorrow.  IF that is not correct, let me know and I will remove it.

        Warmest regards,

        •  I got curious...the wild ones are (6+ / 0-)

          botanically Lilium Columbianum, native to western North America including SE-KI NPs, commonly known as Columbia Lily or Tiger Lily.  See what hanging around in a scientist's diary does? it piques the geek!  :)

          And yes, I'll do tomorrow.

          •  Thank you for the kind words, my friend. (4+ / 0-)

            I have had a rough spot lately, and encouragement like yours helps by a large amount.  I have not even started on Pique the Geek for tomorrow, and suspect that it will be on a new topic since I am still collecting information for the final installment or two of the previous series.

            Warmest regards,

            Doc
