Photos: Easter Lilies At Windybank Farm

April 4, 2021 | 0 Comments

Windybank farm was one of several locations growing Easter Lilies this year, and after seeing the beautiful flowers in the photo sent with the Governor and her family this year, we stopped by to get a few more images of the flowers, some of which were already picked and sent to the Queen via a British Airways flight, part of an annual tradition.

While the island no longer exports the flowers in bulk, it was once said Bermuda was known as “The Easter Isle” for a million good reasons — that was the estimated size of the island’s annual crop of lilies when the industry was at its peak. Established in 1880, the island’s trade in the gleaming Eastertime bloom was one of Bermuda’s most lucrative export industries for decades.
