A sloppy season surprise


The garden is a bit neglected - not all of it, just the pockets that look like too much work. Either the slope seems too steep or the weeds too thick, or the deadheading too far gone.

This evening, taking stock, I had a lovely surprise: a lily I thought had not come up is not only up but flowering elegantly despite being completely overlooked.

There is hope for all of us, even if we think we are neglected! Concentrate on the job at hand and someone will notice, says my lily.

Finding that lily in your untended garden must have been such a delightful surprise.
I also love the inspiring message that your beautiful lily is sharing with us.

It was, you are right! And over the next few days it gave off the most heavenly perfume, an extra bonus this time of year.
