On the cusp of the Midwinter solstice here’s a taste of summer – well for us in northern lands anyway – the rest are having the real thing. I was hoping to get more light into this and capture the translucency of the petals but something more stolid took hold. This is a ‘red’ lily that grows in my garden – well that’s what they told me when they sold me the bulbs. They’re monsters though, and I like the skyward view into the drooping flowers which you can easily do without bending as they’re over six feet tall.
A Merry Christmas to all my readers which could include the troll who hasn’t yet tired of exposing his sad ignorance – maybe things will change in the New Year.
