Lilies of the Field ... and Garden.
Tomorrow is another day, I know. It's just difficult to get everything done. Someday we will have all the time in the world to lay and do nothing, but this summer day we found plenty of something to occupy us.
I am posting flowers today since I want to remember the lilies of August. While working in the yard, the scent of the stargazer and calla lilies flowed through a section of the back yard and made every trip that way a pleasure - even though my knees were aching!
Blessed Gardens. The author of the site said in a section on lilies that the tiger lily is "powerful" and the orange color symbolizes power, too. Some people and pets are allergic to them, however. I didn't know that. Calla lilies symbolize "female magnificence" - I'd go along with that; they're pretty lush - and the pink lilies symbolize "female coquetry." Ooh la la!
These tiger lilies have company: shorter yellow daisies that come up in abundance.
I hope your day today has been a good one and that you got some ART accomplished in addition to any gardening chores you had. I had planned on doing art all day long, but that didn't happen. I painted a couple of pages in my journal and painted the cover for my Daddy Journal. I must find the "filling" for that book. I know what will go on one of the pages, and that's a reproduction of a love letter he sent my mother. A pretty innocent, but important letter: He told her he was coming home and asked if she was ready to get married! That will most assuredly have to go into the Daddy Journal - femminismo
