Just finished reading the book "Lilies, A Guide For Growers and Collectors" quite an interesting and informative read. Thanks Lorn for recommending it!

Me too! The NALS booklet was given to me by my Aunt when I was 12. I'm convinced it was the absolutely infectious expressions drawn on the lily-grower's faces that had me hooked. Lilies had to be good!

The caricatures are certainly inviting to a child's eyes. Big Grin

I love those Let's Grow Lilies pictures. I still refer to that book a lot. It's a quick but very informative read.

I'm going to sign up for NALS in the near future. Doesn't seem like the Wisconsin-Illinois lily society is real active though

The closest active one for me is Iowa. Tough to get to meetings but has me connected to other lily people and the Iowa group is very active.

A Lily club in Southern Wisconsin would be awesome, I'd love to join. My interest is really developing by leaps and bounds.
