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!)
