” Sing to the Lord,
bless His name:
proclaim the good
news of His
day to dayPsalm 96 : 2
“…a flower to put in a glass on your table. It is a flower to peer into. In order to appreciate its true beauty, you will have to know it intimately. You must look closely at all its little squares, and also turn its bell up towards you so that you can look right down into its depths…”
In its native state they grow very deep down so we ought to plant them at a depth of at least 6 to 8 inches. The Thames Valley with its damp, low lying meadows is where you see them growing wild from April to May self-sown for millennia.(Quote and paraphrase ) Vita Sackville- West
There is an idiom gilding the lily. People use this to say that someone is trying to improve something that is perfect as it is.

Snowflakes are so beautiful. They aren’t indigenous here but grow quite wild around the Western Cape. Helderberg had many of them growing by the girls dorm.
Ah a reminder of the Cape. Yes I love the touches of green and their dear bell shape.
