~ In A Vase On Monday – Sunlit Stargazers ~

Our next-door-neighbor dropped by to wish us welcome home with two of her gorgeous stargazer lily blossoms. Carolyn, sweet as the flower, removed the pollen stamens to extend the life of the cut blossom.

Lilium orientalis ‘Stargazer’ and Huechera (generic)

The ceramic vase was a gift from my wonderful niece, Lynn. I love how the lotus-like lines of the vase going up, harmonize with the shape and curves of the wide-open flowers.

With the pond backdrop and sunlight casting shadows, this one is special!

Thanks to Cathy, at  Rambling in the Garden to give me another way to get grounded back home!
