My name is Lily Reed, and this blog is about.... lilies!
Yes, I know. It's a true coincidence, but not really. My mother really loves this flower; she named me after him!
My mother started growing lilies when she was pregnant with me after the doctor told her not to move from the bed when she was 6 months pregnant. So it's been a special bond for us.
