Lily

Lily came from the cheap flower stall in Stratford Market last year, and thrived on the office windowsill for six months, until the summer holidays meant that a move to the back yard had to take place.
Now in a clay pot instead of a plastic one, Lily grew and flowered in late summer.
I brought the pine tree in from the yard to be a Christmas Tree and noticed that Lily was in flower, in late December; Lily now perches on the kitchen windowsill, and doesn't appear to have noticed the sub-zero temperatures this week. This is an inspiration and should be a model of resilience to all of us in 2019. If Lily can do it, we bloody well can!
(Stop Press: Barnet FC did it already! Good on yer!)

Lily is probably a 'Triffid' & will harm you at any opportunity!
