Simple Things {June 5}

by Melissa on June 5, 2011

I love flowers (what woman doesn’t?), and right now I have this large calla lily that I got for Mother’s Day sitting in the window in my office. It grows these incredibly long-stemmed blooms that just beg to have their pictures taken when the sun shines on them in the morning. So earlier this week I indulged a few blooms and happily snapped their pictures.

It’s the least I could do for them, since they make me smile everyday.

Thanks, Lisa! And I’ll be sure to visit your blog. It’s one of my favorite stops on my “Simple Things Tour” each week.

I love this photo! Calla Lillies are my favorite flowers. Great lighting.

Thanks, Shonie. I had the toughest time trying to capture the light just right. It was constantly changing and the plant was right up against the window, and it’s a LARGE plant so I couldn’t easily move it.

I love calla lilies. I chose them as my wedding flower. Beautiful picture. I’m visiting from The Simple Things.
