Considering Lilies

This lily, purchased at a summer festival and planted late, decided to bloom as the weather turned cold.  Rather than see it literally "nipped in the bud," I cut a stalk and brought it in.  The color seems to vary according to the level of light and camera angle.





The remaining stalk was still loaded with buds, so a week later I snipped that also.  This newly opened bud reminds me of a white rose unfurling.

How lovely, the ornamental lilies in their simple elegance.
