I love the shapes and lines of every flower but recently I have been duly impressed with the lovely, graceful lines of the calla lily. In Portuguese these are called copo de leite or "cup of milk". Very appropriate, yes?Without further ado, I would just like to post several of my favorites photos of these beauties, at different phases and from different angles.
To those of you really interested in these beauties, here's an interesting and helpful site that I found:
http://www.callalilyguide.com/ I learned that a calla lily is neither a calla nor a lily. Go figure.
I've chosen this next one as my favorite. I asked my husband if this didn't look just like milk being poured out but he seemed to think it looked like milk going down a drain! Honestly.
These lovely lines of the calla lily remind me of a verse in the Psalms
which speak of our "goodly" (beautiful) heritage.
"The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;
yea, I have a goodly heritage."
