This beautiful Lily called 'Picasso' is flowering on our rather wet and windswept patio. It was given to us by our friend, Christina. According to its label, it thrives in full sun during July, August and September. I don't need to tell you that the conditions have not been exactly to its liking, yet it has defied the wind and the rain and never fails to inspire me. You would think it came from the palette of Georgia O'Keefe and not a sodden garden in the west of Ireland.
Oh, the dangers of reading too simply into what is presented to us.
You can find me reading at the following venues during the month of September come rain or shine:
Sheridan's Wine Bar. Monday 5th Sept at 8.00 pm. For more information click here
