  1. ooh I love irises. I have yellow & red freesias at the moment, though they're almost spent. Might have to find some more, love them.

  2. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! "Chewlips!!"

    I hate Lilies, especially when they're open with all that pollen on the stamens. To me they smell like piddle, and if I'm close enough to them, 10 feet or less, I get an instant spiking headache that settles into a deep heavy throbbing above and behind the eyes.
    And guess what!! We sell the damn things in Coles. These days I eat more antihistamines than I do sandwiches.

  3. "Chewlips" very humourous indeed, they still get my vote over the Lilies a close second and the Irises coming in at a distant third :-).

  4. Love the scent of freesias Fen.

    Yeah River, not the best smell. These weren't overpowering though. R usually cuts the stamens out so they don't drop the pollen. I'll make sure they aren't around when you visit.

    Perhaps iris have become a bit passe Windsmoke. But I like the way they open almost before your eyes.
