In honour of the Higgs bosun non-discovery announcement today, I thought I'd mark the occasion by switching from roses to orange lilies with blue pottery.
Besides, I was getting a little, shall we say, over loaded, with roses.
Orange lilies grow wild in our county. They are nick named "day lilies". I'm not sure why. They are ubiquitous.
When I was cutting these particular flowers from the side of the house, my neighbour happened by with her dog. She is an avid gardener.
"The lilies are nice", she said, "but they don't last long....just a day."
"Maybe that's why they call them day lilies", I said.
