Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Happy Birthday to Your Daughter although You did the hard part!!!!

  • Thanks so much, Noble. Not sure this is a Star Lily…I thought they had white edges, but I could be wrong about that. I’ll try to find out. Thanks for the birthday wishes for my daughter.

    You must be one very special mum Dot – what a lovely gesture from your daughter, and you have done the lovely lily justice with this beautiful image!!

  • Thank you so much, Barbie. It’s a tradition that came from my husband’s family, that the kids give Mom flowers on their birthdays. I’m the lucky beneficiary of all those flowers, having three daughters!
