Last week was teacher’s appreciate, my birthday and mother’s day, hahahaha. Needless to say, I received a lot of goodies. I don’t know what it is about the smell of the lily that makes me go to a “happy place”, but I love the smell! Several people have told me to take off the anthers off the filament (see photo below) inside the flower, and the flower will stay perky much longer. And it really works!
