Then there were two

A lily isn't from a seed. It comes from a bulb. It needs to be hidden and protected; and it waits for the right time to sprout and then to bloom.
You don't just toss it out into the field and it takes root. You don't spread its seeds all around everywhere.
It's a quiet taking of root, a slow revealing.

I am impatient for my lilies to bloom. For them to open up and show me what color they are.
Today I had another nice surprise: pink tip lilies.
You can't rush beauty. You can't demand it within your own time frame.
