Superb summer lilies and Heart Garden happiness . . .

Hello my welcome e-visitor

This summer has suited many of our lilies. There's been plenty of rain. I've given them plenty of food. Mostly though, we haven't had strong winds to knock them around. Here's a photo of me in my role of civil marriage celebrant, task completed, champagne in hand, standing smiling by the magnificent lilies our son and his family gave us for Christmas.
In Australia, we call these white fragrant beauties 'Christmas lilies"
The crinum lilies are coming into flower now, with their soft pink petals, and exuding their gentle scent.
The spicy exotic perfume of the ginger lily will soon be filling the garden.
The whole Heart Garden has been just so lovely in this spring just gone and in the summer we are nearly through. (In Australia, we have summer officially from December 1 to the end of February.)
I got such a surprise to count the small private weddings here since Spring began on September 1.
Nineteen weddings so far!
Twelve were in the Spring, seven in Summer.
Vicky and Jorge were married
in the spring Heart Garden 12 October 2012
And seven Heart Garden weddings were in the Summer.

And all the weddings were so happy and successful, each one unique and special. And just one more to go before the Autumn weddings begin. I get to share the joy of so many couples as they begin their married life together. I surely have the best job in the world!
