Lilies. Truly amazing plants.

This Friday, May 20th, marks the opening of a remarkable event at Longwood Gardens, in Kennett Square, PA, called 'Lilytopia' - that runs through May 30th.

Longwood's enchanting East Conservatory will be transformed into a "breathtaking showcase of the newest varieties of lilies developed by Dutch hybridizers." The dazzling display will showcase more than 10,000 cut stems designed by Dorien van den Berg, noted designer of the world-famous lily show at Holland's Keukenhof. Van den Berg will travel to Longwood from the Netherlands to oversee the creation of the display.

You can also vote in the Lily Idol competition and purchase bulbs from the beautiful displays to grow in your own garden.

I can't wait to go and let you all know what was my absolute favorite.
