My Lilies

Do you see these beautiful flowers? They're Oriental Lilies. And I planted at least 3 dozen of them, in the Spring. Before the twins were born. Do you see how beautiful they are?

Well, it's now September. And I haven't seen a single one of these flowers. Not one! Not even a tiny stem! I watered. All my other bulbs have turned into gorgeous flowers. Including other lilies. But these gorgeous creatures, they have just refused to crack through our soil. It makes me incredibly sad.

I'm going to chalk this up to a gardening failure. What else can I say? There wasn't anything else that I could do. My flowers just didn't want to grow. I'm going to try them again next year. Not as many. But I'm definitely going to try again.
