The lilies are in full swing in my town garden at the moment - reds and whites. This red is actually much darker than the photo shows. I love everything about lilies. The anticipation from the moment they pop out of the ground in spring, to the flowers opening up to expose the gorgeous colours. They give great seasonal colour and height in any garden.


The tui has been doing the circuit of the flaxes at home - and this photo is taken through the window from my bedroom! The flax is Platts Black, grown for foliage, but isn't this a bonus???
