Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~Kahlil Gibran
Here are some Calla Lilies from around here. Have y0u ever seen one? Their origin is Africa and they are not a real lily. They are very popular at weddings. Also funerals, where they are known as a symbol of death. They are said to restore the innocence of the departed soul. That must be why they have always been pretty creepy to me. A beautiful subject for Halloween. And actually, the meaning associated with the name of the flower is magnificent beauty.
"God made the heavens— Royal splendor radiates from him, A powerful beauty sets him apart."
