There are very few flowers that really blow me away. Okay, that's a bold faced lie. They all blow me away. But perhaps the cyclonic effect of an Asiatic lily stands above most other breezes. There's something in the amazing brilliance of color, the symmetry, and the way they outshine everything around them. Oh, and they bloom early in the season, giving them a true head-long lead. Tonight was especially seductive in terms of light and contrast. So perhaps I'll just let the pictures say "Hi low!" You, like the lily, are beautiful and loved!
