straight out of a fairytale

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

this lily is right outside our front door and it reminds me of something you would see in a fairytale. first of all it is at least 6 inches taller than me, there are 14 flower buds on it (currently 8 are open) and it is has the most ginormous flowers i have ever seen. i imagine it going all the way to the sky, the perfect gateway to land where all your dreams come true.


  1. I've grown a lot of flowers, but I don't think I've ever grown a lily that tall and with that many flowers at once! What a treat for you.:-) I loved your tho't of it being access to "where all your dreams come true." You definitely have a wonderful way with words. Maybe you should explore writing as well as sewing!

  2. That is beautiful! I love lilies, but Paul is really, really allergic to them, so I don't have any in our garden. (fortunately, they are the only flowers he appears to be allergic to)

  3. I have one of those giagantor lilies too!

  4. Soo breathtakingly beautiful, even as pictures!
    Love them.
    Thanks for your lovely way of expressing your response to them.
