Artist's Description

A lily from my garden with colours enhanced in Picasa 3. It was by chance that I arrived at these lovely mango colours so the title Serendipity seemed appropriate.

The first noted use of “serendipity” in the English language was by Horace Walpole (1717–1797). In a letter to Horace Mann (dated 28 January 1754) he said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale The Three Princes of Serendip, whose heroes “were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of”. The name stems from Serendip, an old name for Sri Lanka (aka Ceylon), from Arabic Sarandib, which was adopted from Sanskrit Simhaladvipa which means “dwelling-place-of-lions island”.
