TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Lilies

I feel like The Little Prince with his one rose, my Oriental Lily
now has two open flowers and a bud yet to come.



She lights my day and perfumes the whole side of the house.
I wish I could can the scent and send it to each and every one
of you.



I love the little feelers on her petals and the streaks of green
at her heart, truly a wonder of creation.



All photos enlarge and the Logo takes you to flowers around the world.

Thanks to Luiz Santilli Jr. and his Team, we can enjoy these wonders every week.
