My First Ever Easter Lily!

Last week the dear and gracious leaders of our ESL class in our church, came by again - (they do this fairly frequently) with gifts. They brought me a plate of Chinese food that that lasted me for 3 meals, plus a bag of 4 loaves of brown multigrain bread, and then they handed me a potted lily which they said was from the church. (At Christmas it was a pointsetta).

My Easter Lily gift - a first ever!

It was the very first time I've ever been given an Easter lily, and though the flowers were not quite open yet, I was delighted. I set it up on the shelf at my east window so it would get sunlight.

By Good Friday at least 3-4 lilies had opened up! I did't get around to taking photos though until yesterday, and then I had to pinch out a couple of lilies that were turning brown.

When my neighbour Rita popped by for a minute, she spied the lily plant right away. She wondered if I would be able to plant it outside for the summer. I had no idea, but I went to check online and discovered that yes, it is possible to plant it outside as it is a prennial, and it will bloom again - but I think that will only be in more temperate zones - like further south. However, I'm willing to try it! (As a potted plant it will only bloom once).

I trust you were blessed in some way over Easter too. Even if it was only that you got a fresh thrill from the awesome, tremendous gifts God gave us at the first Easter; salvation, eternal life (through Jesus' resurrection from the dead), and then a little later - the gift of His HOLY SPIRIT - who is like Jesus in residence in us!

P.S. Due to relentless efforts to hack into the blog, I have deleted it
and move my weekly posts to this Department on my novel's site, which is
all about my Friends being my Roses or RoseBouquet, and has been from the
beginning, in 2001.
