Pocket of joy: Easter lily in June

Easter, 2020 I was gifted an Easter lily, and when it stopped blooming I planted it outside next to the old fence, not expecting it to live. Over a year later, and a little late for Easter 2021, it is now in bloom.





I love the term “pocket of joy.” I first heard it on a Netflix reality show when one of the main starsspeaking of his difficult growing-up years, also spoke of the pockets of joy that sustained him through those difficult times.

    I have not planted a single Easter Lily in the three years that I have live here. There were none when I bought the property. Last year two eight feet tall lilies came up near the driveway. Now I have at least a dozen coming up in the planting beds, but none are as far along in maturing as you lilies. Maybe the squirrels are burying Easter Lily pods around the property?

    1. Maybe they are. Who knows? I have calla lilies coming up from two years ago. I thought they had died because they made no appearance last year. I have no explanation for why things grow or don’t grow around here.
