One of the most colourful bits of the garden at the moment are the lilies. They perform every year without too much effort on our part. We even have a pot where the lilies are taller than me. Unusually, though, we do have one pot where they haven't flowered at all, though they look perfectly healthy. Perhaps that's the problem and they're too happy.

When I was adding the second of these pics, called lilysmall, I was reminded of Lily Smalls from Under Milk Wood; "Nothing grows in my garden, only washing... and babies."

  1. Thank you for the poignant words and pictures that are carrying me through my thesis writing as tropical storm Fay is dumping heavy rains on my garden (to good ends, I hope)
