Happy Easter

 White Easter Lily (Lilium longiflorum)
It's simply a white lily in bloom, but this Japanese island native with its enchanting fragrance is one of my favorite flowers ever - it says "springtime" and Easter better than almost anything else I can think of. Everything about the bloom is quietly opulent, from the gently swaying stem to the silky white petals and velvety golden heart. 

Happy Easter to you and your tribe!

I really think I can smell Easter lilies for some reason.

Lilies are beautiful, but highly poisonous to cats, so they are not allowed in my house! Happy early spring to you!

Carmine, I keep my Easter lilies out of the reach of cats and dogs!
