    The bud stage of this lily is fascinating, as it reveals tantalizing hints of the beauty to come. A wonderfully sensitive image!

  • Much appreciated Celeste. Where this is growing the ground is hard as a rock and extreamlly dry. The ground in our area is clay and reef – rock. You have to use a jack hammer to get though it. Top soil is very thin. Most people purchase soil to make there gardens.
