Lillies that bloomed in my garden. I had planted them last year. They lay dormant, barely letting their presence felt. There were no flowers at all for a year. Just a few straggly leaves. Our of sheer laziness to do anything I let it be. I watered it like all other plants, lavishing extra care on roses, chrysanthemums and other pretty flowers which vied with each other for my attention, while the lily stood quietly in the background.
And when she bloomed every other flower paled in comparison.
Sometimes life is like that. You might think that all your efforts are going unrecognised, unrewarded.
And suddenly you get something that you never expected.
May you have a lot of lillies in your life.
And may they bloom when you need it the most.
