Lilies Sprouting

Today, I noticed that some of my lilies are sprouting.  I grow several varieties of Asiatic Lilies in various parts of my garden.

The main Lily stem is in the center back of the picture to the right.  The six smaller stems come from the stem bulblets from last year's Lily stem.  I'll probably have to seperate some of these Lilies next Fall.

This particular area of the garden gets the most sunlight.  In addition, the soil depth of this area is very shallow.  I believe both of these reasons contribute to the early sprouting.

I'll probably have some flowers by the end of March. Last year, my first Lily flower appeared on April 1 in this same area.
