"Mary" writes: " Father says the Editor of the Gardeners' Monthly might like to know that this lily does not do as other double flowers do - come double by changing stamens into petals. The flower is as if made by setting three flowers into each other, as would set three cups or saucers - and then come the regular six stamens. But I do not care so much for its botany as for its beauty. It is much prettier than its single bachelor brother".

A very good note; and we join in the last expression for we love beauty also.
