Thank you so much! 🙂
Nice! That’s an interesting poem!
I love their creamy smoothness or is it smooth creaminess? Either way, it is a gorgeous plant, with the toxicity adding allure. Wonderful poem, Christine.
Thanks so much Lisa. There are so many flowers I love more but I couldn’t resist this one to write about 🙂
Your poem reflects the flower. Well done! 🙂
Thank you so much Sascha ☺️
Yes very elegant… didn’t know about its toxicity but I have always consider it a bit menacing.
Thanks Bjorn. Yes I looked it up and evidently it is toxic 😦
This is gentle and elegant Christine.
Thanks Linda 🙂
I like the ending with the word “perished” bringing one’s thought back to “cherished”.
Such is the life of a flower Frank. Thanks for reading ☺️
I have just purchased an indoor Calla Lily, well that’s what the label says. Wish me luck to keep it going.
Yes! Good luck. I hope you can keep it going 🙂💕
