Winter Calla Lillies


One of my favorite things about London (OK, I have a lot of favorites) will always be the flower stands from street to street. In this country where it is cold for most of the year, it always brings me joy to see flowers in bloom. With the weather what it is...I am sure that makes them even more vibrant and attractive for me to gaze upon. As we were walking in the city again today, we noticed a stand overflowing with flowers just off Oxford Street. It was beautiful and I could have stood there for an hour taking in the colors and the smells. I just love these calla lillies. I like the very smooth petals and the way they hang so pretty when they are all bunched together...perfect. There is just something blissful about flowers...

Of course there is! That's why I enjoy working with them so much. I am never more content and serene than when I am surrounded by flowers. They are one of God's nicest gifts to us!
