What A Duo
Two of my favorite flowers. Okay who am I kidding, I like all flowers, even the ones most people think of as weeds. I just like a few more than others. The lillies remind me of the fake flowers that I brought home from my Aunt Mary's funeral back in November of 1999. I rode down to Alabama with my sister and husband. They had been married less than a month, it was an interesting trip. We relied on mapquest to get us down there when we knew where we were going, why I depend on it when I now where I am at I will never know. It is nice to use as a visual to refresh my mind but I find I do better planning out the route by looking at the map and not the directions that are given on mapquest. But I digress. These flowers are from my cousins flower garden that literally wraps around her house. The lillies remind me of the flowers that I brought back and made into a floral wreath that hangs just inside my front door. I see the lillies every day. I love the color of these lillies in particular. Then again burgundies and dusty pinks/mauves are among my first choice when choosing decors. I chose this image to start with because of the combination together. I found it rather stunning.
