Yesterday a lady I have had the pleasure to meet recently and become friends with, dropped around to my house with a Christmas gift for me, a single lily that she has grown. Apparently each year she hands a lily to some of her friends and I got on the list this year. It was completely closed when it was delivered and she has told me that it will open fully in a day or so and that it is a beautiful white lily that sometimes glows in the dark at night.
Here are some photos of it so far: just starting to open this morning then later today as it is continuing to open. I'll post more as it changes.
