Calla Lilies

Hi Friends!

How's everyone doing? It's raining again out here. We have not seen this much rain for several years! Nor have we seen the hills around us so green.
 I thought I would give you the progression on my Calla Lilies today.
From this..


Now this..



This..


To this..



I love these flowers for their simple beauty.



They seem to offer so much hope. I think because they don't open overnight, but it is a process of time and then they stay for a while, putting forth bravery and grace. They are a strong flower, but delicate at the same time.







Tomorrow I'll try and get shots of them fully opened. 
Have a great day whatever you may be doing: creating, staying warm, reflecting, enjoying life....

  7. Oh Lynn...your sooooo funny!!!! Just think about how much smaller of a flower you can make for a ring. OK, send the kids up & I'll learn how to make curled paper flowers with them. Hey, you should do a tutorial on those, they're really cute!
    Smiles & I love your lilies!!!
