A special part of this time of year

I believe  i already wrote about this beautiful little church , out in Metchosin, but it needs repeating, this time of year, a very special thing happens ,around this little church. The church is ST.MARY THE VIRGIN,  the little church is surrounded by a two acre field of  white fawn lilies ,where ever you look, there are these gorgeous little flowers.   These flowers are also called Easter lilies, they can be white or pink i believe, depending on the soil they are growing in.   Here and there, grape hyacinths peek out from under the lilies, and the bright yellow of some daffodils finish the beautiful picture.   If you can, try to go there, Metchosin is lovely anyways, walk through the church yard and then go for tea at the nearby restaurant.Metchosin flowers 028
