More Liliums in bloom in our garden; thank heavens the recent heat wave didn't fry them all - but the summer's not over yet!

Thank you for posting pictures of your lilies. They are such a bright spot compared to the gray, wet scene outside my window!
Bellevue, Washington Zone 7-8
Triumphator usually blooms in the heat of the summer here, and it causes floppy looking and wilty appearance, and only lightly color flowers. However this past season they bloomed during a relative cool spell, and flowers were deeply colored. I never took photos of the ugly times, but these still show what a difference the heat can make here in Minnesota.

Pretty flowers! Here only Lenten roses are in flower in the garden at the moment!
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Wow, Rick, that's quite a difference!
Yesterday the first flower opened on Lilium leichtlinii and this morning a second bud looked fit to burst; this afternoon it was open and starting to reflex,
We visited a friend who lives in a cooler area and she had this Lilium in flower which she thinks is Lilium grayi,
I wonder if your friend's Lilium is L.canadense.
Here's Lilium grayi currently in bloom .
Followed by a couple of unknowns .

Check here for comparisons. There are intermediates between the two species, apparently not that rare in nature.
Thanks, Dave and Rick,
we'll have to check out more on the Web!
In our garden another Orient-Pet is in bloom, 'Silk Road'
