Today's Flowers . . .





Ooops. Another beautiful flower whose name is beyond this clueless keeper's knowledge! But I am sure there will be a kind friend who will enlighten me just like in my previous posts. I saw this beauty at the entrance to one of my art workshop student's house. It is just the size of one small finger. It escapes the attention of most people except this clueless being (me!), who does not only spot beauty, but can also hear its enchanting sound as well (oh, but I do!). This beauty (the flower!) sings an aria that soothe frazzled nerves brought by sudden rains on sunny afternoons . . . It is also a great and challenging composition for my workshop students to paint!

More beautiful flower discoveries at TodaysFlowers.

Updated! As promised and as can be gleaned from the comments, I was informed that this is of the anthurium variety, a spathe flower, a spatyphyllum wallisi, peace lily and white sails! Oh, what beautiful names for such a timeless beauty! Thank you flower lovers!

I am so happy I have found you and your blog. Thank you for leaving a comment on my walking blog. I too have a Peace Lilly in my house...lovely plant.
I post most of my butterflies and birds and blooms on my blog, Q's Corner.
I am so looking forward to reading your journal and seeing your amazing photographs of Heaven here on Earth!
Namaste,

Yes, I have this plant growing right in my bedroom. It is gigantic over many years and, only occasionally does it burst forth in glorious flower. What is nice is that it does well in shade - and our Pacific fog in the San Francisco area.
