Something Smells Really Good

in my yard, that is. It's my oriental lilies and nicotiana flowers. I planted some oriental lilies last year, and they are even stronger and bigger this time. Interestingly, there are some light pink ones I don't remember planting! What happened there? Where did they come from? And I thought I planted the white ones at the front, but they are hiding in the back now. Hmm!? Guess I cannot trust my memory. Better start writing some gardening diary.

And here are my nicotiana flowers. They look simple yet elegant, smell lovely, and most importantly, they attract cucumber beetles. How wonderful! Perfect decoy! Now my favorite Chinese cucumber plants are much safer.
