We had some really cold weather here in May and into June too. It was really hard on our lovely garden. I was sure when the tulips never came up that the lilies were hiding deep in the earth too. Who can blame them. We had snow in June!
Today I spent a few minutes admiring our lovely lilies. I’m so happy a few of them made it!
What would a post about lilies be without a little poetry? giggle, that’s not it, but it does rhyme. Instead here’s a little poem by William Blake.
The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat’ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.
Do you have lilies in your garden?
