  5. Oh wow! That is truly a breathtaking sight to see. Lilies are quickly becoming my favorite flower. We planted three dwarf lily plants beside our koi pond, and they bloom so heavily and continuously, they're just a joy to watch.

  10. mariel- It is a pretty interesting place. I hope you get a chance to visit someday.

    Joy- It's been a slow reading month so far for me but I'm over halfway now in The Tenderness of Wolves and enjoying it a lot.

    Thanks 3M.

    Andi- They are very pretty. There were quite a few different colours at the park which was fun to see. Course H came home with pollen stains on his shirt (the main negative about lilies says the main laundry doer!) ;)

    Janet- I'm all about the angles. :P

  17. lacer- It was a really nice place to visit. Not only for the flowers but also the fact that it was outside of the city and therefore not crowded.
