It’s Blooming Friday again and the theme this week is Big and Small. I just can’t wait to show off the first big bloom of my lilium. I was told that they were from the Netherlands. However no name of the cultivar was given or written. Not wanting to buy plants that might not survive our weather I played safe and bought only two. One did not make it but the one that bloomed…! Ah, I’ve been admiring it every single day and the fragrance is wonderful. Getting a whiff of the heady scent while watering the plants or while pottering around my yard is such a good feeling. Now I know what I’ll be growing by the dozen next year!!
On the other hand the ‘small‘ blooms are of the Oxalis, a common weed that threatens to take over bare soil…if there’s any left! But I love these blooms so much that I’ve pulled up the best ‘weeds’ and planted them in a pot. It makes me happy to see these cheerful little faces!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
