Flower in my Garden

This is a calla lily I found in my garden.
They call the white ones an invasive species but it is so pretty
and I am excited to find it.
Apparently they are poisonous to animals and people.

I took a picture of it but I did not take a picture of the lupin one
I hope it is still there so I can take a picture. I keep forgetting the camera.

Nothing like your own flowers.

My black rose is dead. I am not surprised because they cut off the roots.
And it wasn't black. It was rose colored.
The other cuttings I took, I planted and now have three more of bushes.
If they grow they will be very fragrant in the spring when they flower.

The rose I got for 3.99 is growing nicely in a deep pot.
Hopefully I will have flowers on it soon.
Well we have not really got into planting yet.
The weather is not very nice to work outside.

So everything I have grows on the balcony or indoors. lol

I had to share this pretty flower though I never had one like it.
A lonely Calla Lily, pure and pale
Remarkable her story
Surviving on a thorny grail
Sings a song of lonely glory
A prayer so sweet, from vestal deep
Travels sanctified, in air
A vow of chastity,
 A priestess in her right
Oh Calla Lily
 Immaculate delight

Let's hear it for those invasive lilies.

Thanks Sandy.
People are complaining about their grass growing weeds since they outlawed the chemical sprays and sell organic ones which don't do anything.
I say good. Weeds are good.
We have to go back to nature and learn to blend in with it rather than fight with it. lol

I wish they would invade my yard!

Akelamalu So do I. I might get more to plant.

Mama Zen I love invading plants.
Especially the morning glories which open every morning and then close up at night.
There is nothing to do but to look at them.
