My favourite flower.
This lilium is the only thing I remember when I was child.
It's 11 in the morning and the summer rain just stopped.
The Lilium never been so beautiful...
Some notes about that:
Lilium Chalcedonicum
- A very old and handsome Lily, of tall and graceful growth, and bears several pendulous, vermilion, turban-shaped blossoms about the end of July. It is one of the easiest to cultivate, thrives in almost any soil, and is best when well established and left undisturbed. There are a few varieties, majus being the largest and best. The others are graecum, rather taller than the type, and having smaller flowers; pyrenaicum, with yellow flowers; Heldreichi, tall and robust, flowering a week or two earlier; and maculatum, a very handsome form. Native of Greece and Ionian Isles. Similar to the scarlet Martagon is the Japanese L. callosum, a pretty Lily, 1 1/2 to 3 feet high, with slender stems, bearing in summer several brilliant scarlet blossoms. L. carniolicum, of a similar character, is 1 to 3 feet high, and produces in early summer turban-shaped nodding blossoms of bright vermilion or yellow

I love the bright red colors of this flower, I've never seen one before quite this red. I love the sunsplashed bright background with the flower in the shadows, well done.
