Some pics from the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens conservatory display featuring lilium. I think the first one might be Robina? But if anyone knows the names of the others featured, please tell us. I'm not sure if Anthony knows who supplied the lilies, but they sure were beautifully impressive!

Real fresh cherries. Gosh, it would be so nice to go out and pics some right off the tree for breakfast. We did that in Slovenia when I was there. Mmmm......
Remember this from last year?

Anthony, any pics of the Men's Arrangements this year?

And della, the conservatory is nicely done. The stone work looks fairly simple, but expertly crafted. Although, the different colored limestones is a little odd, IMO.

Wasn't the taboo word "cherries" on another thread???
I was gonna say they are damn expensive (if ever available) here in winter time... but even then they'd be less then $15.
I think!

LOVELY lilies... would love some... so the old ladies walking by would faint at the look and fragrance!
