These lovely Arums (Calla Lily) grow in mum’s garden. Mum often brings me small bunches of these delicate trumpets, which to decorate my home.

Every Arum (Calla) is unique and different .- (Just like us humans, not one is the same.)

Set Up
My two Lilies were placed up against my living room wall allowing for soft natural light coming from a window on the left.

    These flowers are exquisite and so classy….you’ve captured that mood well here, Maria. Love the drooping one too….gorgeous!

  • oh thank you my sweet Wendi… yes… Arums (Callas) are very elegant and sensual… I removed the droopy one (Somber) for I’m still not sure whether to upload it again…… for now I’ll just ponder on it…..

    That is really amazing. Have you seen the work of Robert Mapplethorpe? If not, have a look. He’s got an amazing study with flowers. I think you would like it.

  • Oh manual…. Robert’s a genius…. he’s work is mind blowing….. many of his images are very sensual, provocative and erotic…. his Calla Lilies are superb and beyond expression…..
    I love this one

    I’m drawn to this image (which has nothing to do with calla lilies)
