L is for Lillies

Inspired by the manicured garden at Keukenhof, Holland, I bought some plants and bulbs at a garden shop on-site.

I planted the lillies according to the simple instructions & nothing really seemed to happen for months but I persisted.

Mother nature, she always gives me such beautiful surprises.

Note: I left London for a about a year & when I arrived home, the lillies bloomed. How welcoming!
