      First bloom of 2021

      I think this is a little earlier than last year. I didn't divide my lilies this year, so that must have given them a head start. BUT my cattails are doing nothing, so I think they are packed in too tight. I'm gonna divide them this afternoon.

      Nancy, strange that you are further north yet your blooms appeared first. Do some varieties naturally bloom earlier?

      There may be some that bloom earlier then others. I have had this lily for 15 years or more and it is not usually the first one to bloom. I think it is called Nymphaea alba, White Waterlily. My Joey Tomocik is usually the first one to bloom at this time of the year. Most of my lilies are older. I do have several that are about two years old.
      Here are some pics that are not very good. The sun was out and I took them with my phone while I was working in the yard. I meant to go back later and take some once they were fully opened but forgot to.
