Pollen

IMG_0567The much maligned lily stamen, replete with granules of rich ochre pollen.  Often ceremoniously snipped before they can stain your best frock, drop onto the cream pile carpet or mar the Maltese terrier.  This is a great pity, they are as beautiful as the exotic blooms they bless.

  1. They are beautiful. I am so allergic to the pollen of the star gazer lily that even moving them into another part of the house is not enough. My granddaughter thought to give me an armload of blooms which we promptly placed on an outside table.
