August Break: Lily Bud

Photobucket

Resurrection lily bud

And the stately lilies stand Fair in the silvery light, Like saintly vestals, pale in prayer; Their pure breath sanctifies the air, As its fragrance fills the night.

Enjoy your break Erin. Are you going to read some good books while away? I'm currently reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" and "The Alchemist" (which I can't seem to put down!).
