Velma Langdon is rather proud of her stargazer lily. It has put on a grand show for the past four years, and this year its blooms – and perfume – are second to none. Mrs Langdon, who has been at the Westerfield property, Hawthorn Wood, for 20-odd years, believes it is just in the right spot at the side of the house. It is a good year for blooms with another reader, John Ranson, photographed last week with his 2.5m specimen.
