Mine's flushing now FF. I'm just taking a pic every couple of days and then do a slideshow from start to finish.

depends on temperature, so longer this year than most. Average is about 6 weeks from start to fully hardened fronds, a month for full grown fronds :wink:

They can flush late if the weather suddenly warms up, and is fooled into thinking it is summer. Mine flush every other year, and is normally commences around the end on June. One of the heads on my 'twin head' is starting just now :wink:

couple on the go here and there, nothing worth sharing at the moment. using my slr for one today (lily opening) but i'd rather not as they can only take a finite number of images before they die. all my other camera options are non HD at the mo tho :(

annoyingly lilys seem to open at night icon_rambo
