Raining Lilies

IMG_2524

(Four photos) This morning I walked outside to discover my garden filled with rain lilies that bloomed overnight. These lilies started off as seeds, a gift from my mom’s garden. She sure has been on my mind lately, and these rain lilies always remind me of her. After flowering, these turn to seed pods, which are filled with black flakes that scatter and then turn into more rain lilies. This was the universe telling me my mom still lives in my heart and soul, and just a bit in my garden. Unfortunately, I didn’t inherit her green thumb. Or perhaps it’s the lack of time. 😉

Day 132 – Secret Story

The mother’s heart is the child’s schoolroom. – Henry Ward Beecher

There’s a story behind today’s subject, which I’ll tell you in tomorrow’s “What Was That?!?” section. In the meantime, can you guess what the subject is for today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture? Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 131)

I just loved Shahn’s guess. As a matter of fact, here it is verbatim: GOT IT!!! Todays’ pic is a the end of a bunch of bananas!!! :)

When I was uploading yesterday’s picture I thought to myself, “Wow, that sure does look like a bunch of bananas.” But usually what you think something is really isn’t. In this case, that bunch of bananas wasn’t. Instead, what you saw was the very tip of a lily about to burst open and bloom. Ah, nature. Always full of surprises. 😉
