FunnyNot Flowers

Okay, you remembering that rant I did recently about the combination of red and gumball purple flowers?  I said I'd do my best to abide the purple throats on the white ... on the white what?  I think it's phlox, and if you know better, go ahead and laugh.  Remember, I'd been stuck with those purple throats, because they were in a 4-pack with white and red.  What you're about to learn, though, is the joke some seed-sifter-sorter-poker played on me.  Look what was on that extra stem in the cell containing the red flowers:

Don't think I didn't do a double-take
when these presented themselves.

To salve this terrible affront to my floral beauty sensibilities, note the gorgeous new Calla lilies, compliments of Son2 and his wife.  Something is thriving in the pitiful new flower bed.

This next one I can take credit for buying ... and managing to keep alive for nearly two weeks now.  Pretty little specimen.  ºÜº

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?  ~Luke 12:27, 28

I agree, the calla lilies are beautiful. Don't recall seeing pink ones before. Are they real? Don't go laughin' at my flowers anymore, ya' hear?! jk ;)
