Spring is here – not only officially, but unofficially – no matter how cold – Spring is here when the Curly Lilies Bloom.  They bloom in the wet moss of Spring.  Their distinctive leaves showing mottled greens against the moss.  They always show around Easter – even when Easter is early.

Hidden in the underbrush - the curly lily flowers show brilliant white against the greens.

And bloom they do in the Park lands of Stephenson Point.

With them I discovered a wonderful walk.

This land at Stephenson Point is surrounded on all sides by roads or houses, but it is almost all wild within.  There are rough trails and one rather pretty raised walkway, but the land still feels wild.

Within its bounds I found the earliest of the Curly Lilies, plus the delicate pink of a wild flowering bush, and close by – miniature Fairé mushrooms, some almost translucent.  The mushrooms are growing in the moss on tree trunks and on rotting logs.  Tiny and delicate – they will not last long.  Neither do the Curly Lilies – they bloom for such a short time, but they are a joy to see in the Spring.

There will be many more lilies blooming there – you can see this by all the leaves coming up out of the ground!  But their season is short and soon they will be gone.  If you get the chance, go for a walk and look for the Curly Lilies.
