Lilies and Lemons


Happy Easter Sunday everyone!

There are a few things that remind me of Easter….bunnies, colored eggs and lilies.  Since I’m fresh out of the first two, I thought I’d share with you some lilies I photographed the other day.

My step-daughter brought me these beautiful lilies and I put them in a glass vase in front of one of our picture windows that overlooks our beautiful view.  Just outside the window we have a lemon tree from which we’ve (or I should say my husband has) made a few yummy chicken dishes.

I thought the lilies looked really pretty with the lemons hanging just beyond the window.  Hope everyone has a great Sunday!  Thank you Cindy for the beautiful flowers!

    Love the DOF and lighting with the lemon tree in the background. I’m a huge fan of Calla Lillie’s in the spring and you’ve captured the essence of this day brilliantly. Well done Laura!

  18. Beautiful Arum Lilies Laura. They are my favourite flower. They were my grandmother’s favourite flower also. She always said that when she died she wanted Arum Lilies on her coffin. We used to joke that she better time her death for Spring however she died tomorrow 8 years ago. Wow. So long ago. Anyway, we searched the shops to find fake lilies for her. Everyone had the same idea so she had lots of them. Thank you Laura for reminding me of my grandmother. 🙂
