The beauty of a lily

I just adore lilies.  I couldn’t resist when I saw a bunch on sale recently and brought them home, really excited. 

A few days later the first bud opened…  and the hay fever started.  So I ended up donating my beautiful lilies to my lovely, very sweet neighbour (she is in her 80’s, a real darling). 


I took a few photos before I passed them on though.  These lilies were white with a slight pink blush on the edges.


The curves and textures make them feel so luxurious.

I think in future I will consider a friend’s advice:  just nip off the pollen parts with a tissue.  But I will take the photos first!


* We are moving house over the next few days.  Unfortunately I am not sure when we lose our internet connection, and even less sure as to when we will regain it.  Hopefully I will be able to make at least one more post before we lose it.  If things work out well, all will be up and running before Christmas (pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease!)


  1. PS Good Luck and Best Wishes for your move

  2. Thank you! So far we have survived the move as well :)
