Stargazer lily

Posted by Picasa


This lily plant grows just outside my front door, and has great personal significance to me. As its time comes to bloom dazzlingly each year and fill the air with a heady aroma, I rejoice and receive a sacrament of God's blessing.

This year the number of blooms doubled; there were six. I thanked God as each opened, on a different day.

The final lily is now dropping its petals. I am not sad, though, because the lilies had their time and I was able to enjoy them. I also know that, barring unforeseen circumstances, their presence will return next year.
