Kim mentioned that she'll be starting Friday's Flowers again and it dawned on me that I've been very lax in my flower photography. Today's flowers are lilies. These particular lilies come with a little story.
Yesterday I was running errands and stopped in at Trader Joe's for granola bars. They had just opened the doors and it didn't take me long to do my shopping, so I was the first customer. The checkout clerk rang the bell and yelled "First customer of the day!" Then they gave me flowers. How cool was that? I was surprised enough to have the bell clanging, but getting flowers was really special.
Here's a tip for you that my neighbor taught me... Lily pollen stains fabric easily. When the blooms open up, use a napkin to remove the anthers. Then you can enjoy the flowers without worrying about your tablecloth or heirloom doily.
