a week of lilies
Coming up - a week of lilies. Or a week, rather, of this lily - I want to trace its emergence from day to day. This is one from the same batch of which I bought 24 or so for Christmas gifts for the English Department staff - and all through this semester, depending on when they started to water them, and how light their offices are, they've been bursting into spectacular blooms. So this should develop into white and pink stripes: rather than 13 ways of looking at a - well, wood pigeons, jays, starlings and grackles were the birds of choice outside today - feathered object, here will be five or six observations of an amaryllis.
