Another Unknown Lily

Posted in Huntington Beach, Personal by Bridget Casas on June 15, 2009

This is my second photo this month of a lily that I do not know what kind it is. Does that sentence make sense? Well, it is a plant from my mother’s funeral 18 months ago and this is the first time it has bloomed. It is sitting on our front porch. Maybe it would like a little sun – it doesn’t get any there. Anyway, as I am sure you can tell, I took it with the Lensbaby 2.0. I tried to put the focal point at the top of the stamen but I think it is at the upper edge of the petal instead. I did not use the macro lens on this one – just the standard 4.0 aperture. One day I will learn!

A beautiful white lily…

I am just about finished with the wedding photos, and they came out really good. I did an excellent job! It has been a lot of work because I want them to be perfect. I am going to put them up on my website soon so everyone can see them. Either that or I am thinking of trying Zenfolio. New subject:  I am tired of people arguing with me and not doing what they say they will do. BlackRapid said they would reimburse me for my broken filter two weeks ago, and now they just ignore me. DirectTV won’t waive an early cancellation fee for service they were unable to provide up in Green Valley Lake. Willie was going to do a few things for me yesterday and today that he didn’t do for me. Why is everyone against me?

    Hi Bridget,

    This flower is called – Peace Lily. But it has nothing in common with lilies. The correct name is Spathiphylium. It is very easy to grow home plant.

    I really like your photos,
    Regards,
    Chris

      Thank you for looking at my photos and letting me know about the plant. The name kind of implies why it was at my mother’s funeral!
