Bush lily love.

They are everywhere. In our garden I watch them lay themselves bare, from palest green to deepest orange.

They grow in the shade of the ancient figs in the Company Gardens.

And then there is Babylonstoren, where they go on forever and ever.

Where I discovered colours I didn't know. From the palest creamy yellow to green throated copper, to a deep, dark red. Where I discovered the elusive scented varieties. And I walked, at times completely alone and I was content.
