Scene On The Street – 4

Scene On The Street - 4
On a recent stroll through the neighborhood we stopped to admire one of the many gardens that line the street. There were a profusion of lilies dancing in the wind. Dancing so violently I was unable to make a picture. Then I spotted this lone flower in a seemingly untended corner. A shaft of sunlight illuminated the flower.

Stargazing


I am a big fan of Stargazer lilies and have been ever since a florist friend introduced me to them almost 20 years ago.

“The stargazer lily is a recent hybrid that was first developed in 1978 by Leslie Woodruff, a plant breeder who was completely devoted to his lily projects.” “The flower buds opened towards the sky, so Woodruff named this hybrid “Stargazer.”” (both quotes from http://lilyflowerstore.com/lily-facts/meaning-of-stargazer-lily.html)
