Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;from Matthew 6:28, King James Version of the Bible
they toil not, neither do they spin.
If Easter lilies are white, can these red lilies be Good Friday lilies?
I think they can.
I was captivated by this stand of lilies at a local park, and how each of them is unique.
And yet, together, they form a community. A beautiful, striking, fragrant community.
Just musing about lilies, people and redemption on this Good Friday. Happy Easter from Glover Gardens.

They look lovely
Don’t they? They literally stopped me in my tracks as I was doing a power walk through the nature preserve.
This is truly lovely – the flowers and the thoughts. I really LOVE it. The red lilies are so truly magnificent and perhaps have a deeper meaning too. I loved your writing. It is the way I like to think of Easter. It is quiet and contemplative and gives me a lot of good things to remember and think about. Thank you so kindly for this.
Anne, thank you so much for the feedback. I woke up this morning thinking about this post, wondering, “did I really say anything?” You made me feel like I did. I guess sometimes, you can say a lot with just a little, but I wasn’t sure I had achieved that until your comment.
Happy Easter, from one contemplative person to another.
