And the stately lilies stand…

And the stately lilies stand
Fair in the silvery light,
Like saintly vestals, pale in prayer;
Their pure breath sanctifies the air,
As its fragrance fills the night

Julia C.R. Dorr, American author, 1825–1913

Great photos, Cindy. I always enjoy visiting because of the great images and the variety of your subjects. There’s always a pleasant surprise waiting.

I have one very similar to the one at the top, without the pink blush on the ends of the petals. It’s my most prolific lily. Don’t you love them and their fragrance?
