The first 2 beautiful bouquets of flowers included scented lilies. I may have needed the staff to remove them from the room at night, yet they were a lovely aroma for healing.I so agree with Maggie may about the pollen - it does stain fabric badly (folks - just soak with an oxygen bleach)Sandy, thank you sincerely for sharing this wonderful flower from your Folk's own garden,care and huggles,Michelle/MickleReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAscender Rises Above11:03 AMlovely freshly watered flowers.
