Lily Photos

One year, we bought an Easter Lily that had lived in a store for awhile. The shape showed how it reached for light. A nice memory, to bring the plant home, and watch it bloom.

GARDEN TEA PARTY

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.

Peonies – early July 2018

In August 2012, I bought these flowers at Festival Foods in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  The photo is by Karl. Wonderful how beauty can last in another way with blog posts.
