Wow! my foxtail lilies are beautiful this year. I'm experimenting with them, they are temperamental and expensive.. They've bloomed 2 years in a row. I might have to try some different colors. I guess it's a desert plant. It prefers hot and dry. I just got thru pitting cherries for another year. What a messy job. It's suppose to reach 99 degrees today. I believe it's hotter. We don't have any Air conditioning. It is just perfectly comfortable until it's like it is today. I spray the birds and dunk the dogs in the tub. Then plop them in front of the fan.
