Pink-striped Trumpet Lily


 Lirio, Pink-striped Trumpet Lily, Crinum Latifolium L.

I have posted this flower before but I left that pot to my old neighbor when I moved to this townhouse last year.  This is a new pot of Lirio given by my new neighbor who suddenly got sick and had to move in with his married son.  She left a few of her flowers with me, and these flowers remind me of her cheerful smiles.

These are the first buds of the pink-striped Lirio.

Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love.  Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.  ~ Elie Wiesel


It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Liles never fail to captivate me with their heart touching beauty.. And this one with the pink strips, is simnply outsatnding.. Loved it a lot.. Recently when I was exploring some of the online florist to buy exotic flowers online, I found a blue stripped lily at Floworldonline, but this pink one is even more charming..!
