These flowers are in my sister Jan's front garden. Aren't they stunning?
Here's a a delicate peony with a bud just about to open.
And these are photos from her big clump of Calla Lilies. I love the way the light shines through the creamy cups to illuminate the faint stripes beneath.
Plus of course there's the very cool way the flowers come to a curly little tip at the top.
I've tried to grow these flowers without success. But then I'm not the gardener my sister is. She can grow just about anything and the secret to her success is really taking care of the plants. I do enjoy visiting her garden; it's almost like a botanical park.
