Little Fairy-land Lilies :: The Wildflowers Are Waking Up!

Spring Lilies

If you've been following my Twitter page you may have noticed I'm documenting all the Spring wildflowers that come up in my backyard. The second ones to come up are these adorable Lilies which turn the yard into a little fairyland! They are tiny and look like wild onion or garlic, however, I think they are "false garlic" (Nothoscordum bivalve) based off of information from my Twitter friend, USWildflowers. These cute flowers remind me of my little niece, Lily.

In other news, yesterday I spent a huge chunk of the day making a new banner for my Etsy shop. The old one looked just like the banner I have here at the top of my blog. The new one is more streamlined (I think) but I'm not sure if I'm finished tweaking it. Please let me know what you think: Pop over and have a look at my new Etsy banner

Is it too bright? Just right? Does it match my shop? Should I go back to more muted colors? I'd like to hear your thoughts!

Oh, by the way, in case you were curious - the first wildflowers to come up in my backyard were yellow primroses. You can see a picture on my Twitpic page if you'd like! In addition, I also found a perfect dandelion puff!


  1. We've got a fairy ring of these in the backyard where the tree fell down. They are pretty little things. :o)

  2. Oh, and I like your new banner!

  3. Cool! Take a picture of those little lilies.

    And thanks for stopping by my shop to check out the new banner. :)

  4. How cool, you've got a whole different collection of Spring flowers! I'm going to pay attention. And BTW, if you're really interested in a crit/ideas for your Etsy banner, I'd be glad to give my opinion/ideas. Contact me via Etsy convo and maybe I can help?! (WillOaksStudio)
