Happy Mother’s Day

Today is Mother’s Day in Sydney. Wishing all mothers a wonderful day surrounded by love.

This is the Oriental Lilium ‘Stargazer’, a hybrid with blooms that face upwards on really strong stems. They are very fragrant and attract butterflies.

‘Stargazers’ can grow to a height of 36 inches with a spread of 10 to 14 inches with 2 to 8 flowers per stem.

This lovely gift has everything, beauty, heady fragrance and bulbs to plant and keep!

(beware that this plant is toxic to cats, so not suitable for a cat owning mum)

To My Mother

You too, my mother, read my rhymes

For love of unforgotten times,

And you may chance to hear once more

The little feet along the floor.

( Robert Louis Stevenson 1850-1894 )
