Were are the beautiful girls who should wear this tutu's? Beautiful flowers.
Erik - these lilies are dancing all over the suburbs that lie along the mountainslopes of the city at the moment. I wish you could see them!
Thanks for the visit, and for your lovely comments.
Hazel, beautiful macro of those lovely flowers! Best wishes, May
Thank you for your visit May!
I love these lilies, and I wish they would flower for longer than only a couple of weeks a year. But it is worth the wait, and they smell so heavenly too!!
What always amazes me is that they appear each year in the most neglected areas or untidy pockets of earth, putting on a beautiful show to brighten up an ugly or uninspiring area - a beautiful gift for those who love nature.
Warm wishes, Hazel
It's amazing what wonders we see everyday. Such a beautiful nature, we earthlings should really take care of it for coming generations to enjoy as well. All my best, dear Hazel,
Thank you for your heartwarming reply, May.
It is in each person's innermost being to seek out beauty, I am sure - no matter how well hidden it may be!! The lovely photographs posted by so many folk on Panoramio show that we need to see and preserve this beauty, to survive, as you so wisely say.
Your part of the world is one of the most beautiful places on earth. When we flew over it from Venice to the UK in 2007, it was lunchtime, and I sat with my tray, looking down at the beauty of the Alps (my first time), taking LOTS of photographs of the snowy peaks, eating and crying my eyes out, all at the same time - it was so beautiful. My husband was most embarrassed I think!!
(I will post one of my Alps photographs for you, to show you what I saw.) I just love them and they still bring tears to my eyes sometimes! I am a mountain person - there has to always be a mountain somewhere nearby!!
Very warm wishes, Hazel
Hazel, I know this feeling! It happens to me as well, when I stay in a beautiful landscape, my eyes are filled with tears. I then breathe it inside of me and hope to never forget this feeling.
Warm regards, May
So glad to know that you are a kindred spirit, May and that you understand how I felt when I took these photographs. I also breathe it deep into my soul and try to keep it there!
