back home again
Traveling and camping are such fun, but always good to return home to a comfy bed and the rest of the conveniences. A chance to see what new flowers have popped up led to these (not to mention the blueberries that didn’t last long enough for a photo op).
I’m hoping the wandflowers helped to keep the hummingbirds happy in case the feeders ran dry. The formal name for this lovely low maintenance plant is Gaura lindheimeri
Then there was something that popped up seemingly out of nowhere.
I have plenty of white and purple calla lilies I inherited with the place. Neither or which I’m altogether fond of, but this yellow one… well that’s a different story altogether.
A little something I googled about the meaning of the different colored calla lilies. The yellow version conveys joy and light heartedness. They are given as a symbol of friendship. The website explained (without meaning to) why I wasn’t so fond of the other colors I had.
The calla lilies are in bloom again. Such a strange flower—suitable to any occasion. I carried them on my wedding day, and now I place them here in memory of something that has died.
