This is a lily I bought in Safeway a few days ago. My husband took this picture and made it look like something Alfred Hitchcock would have used as setting in a horror movie. You can just see a shady character emerging through those lace curtains. Eventually, like most of the flowers I buy for the dining room table, it will end up in the garden. This flower will join a white lily that has survived a few winters. I hope it continues to live for may years in much less scary setting.
