Star Gazing

The Stargazer lilies are blooming now. I just found them today!





See the spots toward the center of this flower? They aren't just spots, they actually stick up!



“The skies were made by God’s command; he breathed the word and the stars popped out.” 

Psalm 33

Wow! Gorgeous lilies! I love to use them for flower arrangements. In answer to your question about "kebaya" - Kebaya is a traditional blouse dress worn by woman in Indonesian, Malaysian, Burma, Thailand and some part of Cambodia made from sheer material and usually worn with a sarong, batik or other traditional clothing such a songket with a colorful motif. Have a beautiful day!

Wow, those are gorgeous.
Oh and by the way the dog in my post yesterday isn't actually made of cabbage. It's a resin figurine but it sure looks like cabbage :)

I never cease to be amazed at God's glorious creation. He certainly doesn't allow us to be bored, does he? He's also created creative people like you to share His beauty!

The deer made a meal of our Stargazwer lilies this year, so I doubly appreciate these that you've shown.
