Lilies are in full bloom right now and I can not pass by them without having a deep breath .Their smell brings me to the imaginary lands of forgotten past fairy tales and ancient legends. Today I imagined the impact lilies pictured on Ishtar Gate had made to visitors …..then I noticed brown lilly  pollen moustaches  under my nose and had some trouble cleaning them.There must be something in the structure of the lily pollen to stick so firm!
