Some small wonders of Autumn


The Valotta lilies, Cyrtanthus elatus
 have put on their lipstick


shy Naked Ladies unfolding their beauty


to burst into bloom and still
demurely draped in shadow play


and when we look into their hearts,
they show us their very soul

  8. oh my, these are so very beautiful.
    when i lived in California, we had naked ladies, they came in pink and white. it was always fun to say "did you see the naked ladies?" people would turn their heads to see and then i would add, the pink flowers.
