calla lilies purple


“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”
― Luther Burbank

Three years ago, on Mother’s Day, I was gifted four calla lily plants by my children.  As this is my favorite flower ~ in all of its variations ~ the plants were multicolored.  Removed from their plastic pots, they were replanted near the front door, but I didn’t know if they would come up again or if the deer would eat them all.  They had eaten my tulips, bulbs and all!!

They grew again!! Their growing rates were staggered and I enjoyed some temporary beautiful lush blooms.  It does help to see new growth before our eyes instead of only within.


Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy your visit.
