The buds grow really quick! You can see that from the following two photographs. Both were taken on the same day – one at sunrise and one after sunset.

From bud to bloom to wilting, this fireball lily takes around 8-10 days. Currently, there are three such lilies in our garden and I see a lot more buds sprouting up. 😀

For now, this is going to be one of my last posts on Whakaahua. I am going on a short break. I promise I will be back soon with a lot of photographs.

Thank you! 🙂
