Friday Flower Porn: Lily Fair

Lily fair, lily fair, around the house, everywhere! Yes, we've got all types: Oriental lilies , Tiger llilies, Daylilies, and the ever-so-shy but pungent Lily of the Valley.

Interestingly, most of those mentioned above aren't true lilies (the exception being the Asian or Oriental types). I can sort of understand the confusion with the Tiger and Daylily due to the blossom, but the the Lily of the Valley? If a true lily is a horse, a Tiger lily might be a zebra, but a Lily of the Valley would be a hyrax.

Not ones to "do it in the road", these Lilies of the Valley like to cluster-flock by the side of our garage, in the shade of some very tall red maples.
