Give Peace (Lily) a Chance

By
Education & Training with House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada

I took a photo last August of an interesting flower.  At that time, I had no idea what it was but with a little research and the help of a horticultural friend, I found out that it is a Peace Lily.  It looks like a single petal flower.  So interesting.  

Thanks to Ribbet, I managed to frame and sign the photo.

Are you sure it's not a Buckeye?  LOL.  Lovely flower #50, framed beautifully too, but who is V. Zinger?

Roger:  

I have heard that she is getting to be a prolific photographer, often seen at the Experimental Farm - we only hope for photographic purposes and not as some type of genetic experimentation.  LOL    #50

Li:  Thanks.  It is just a flower and not two people on horseback in the ocean as your photo is today.   Still, I try.  LOL

We have one or two of those in the house...and every so often it will throw up a flower. They are beautiful while they last.  But, the foliage is great all the time.  Thanks for sharing your photo.

Beautiful, just beautiful.  I especially like the pinks and purples in the background adding to the lovely lily.

Well I'm beginning to like her almost as much as I like #50, but that's going some, she'll never catch up to my #50.

Great shot of a Peace Lilly, Val.  I used IPiccy on the shot of the barn to shadow out the edges.  It's actually still up and running.

Ron.  I have never tried to grow one of these.  House plant?  Okay, maybe worth a try.

Kerrie:  I liked how the focus was on the flower and not on the ground cover behind and beneath it.  I am pleased that you noticed.

Roger:  Well, thank you but she is lurking everywhere.

Caron:  It would look terrific in a black and white bathroom.  A little bit of colour.

John:  Thanks.  I still have my link to iPiccy.

Thanks Roy.  

Dorie:  You are so welcome.

Sussie:  I am going to look for Closet Plants in the internet.  Sounds similar.

I watered that Lily for my Canadian friend this summer while she was in Canada ;-) I goggled it too and sounds like it should be a perfect choice for my house because it's dark and I think I can handle watering ones per week. I also find a trick to rememberr watering and set it up for Wednesday  because it starts with the same letter as water LOL.

Anna. Now that is a good trick, Wednesday is for watering. Did your friend come back to Canada to avoid the heat and then find we are having the hottest summer ever?

Yes, she said it was hot up there and I said that it's better staying in Houston under AC through the summer than go places where people don't have AC's because it is warm only one month per year.

Anna:  Ha, ha, ha.  You are so funny.  You might even be one of those people who show up in July with snow skis on your roof rack.  Of course, being Canadian, we are too polite to laugh as you drive by but, with our windows up and the air conditioning going you won't know for sure.  This summer has been hot since May.  Okay, maybe not scorching hot and not as dry as Texas but.......

LOL. I think  there are only two people in my neighborhood who are not complaining about our hot summer  - me and my Canadian friend. That what we have to pay for the good winter.

Anna:  When every snow bird flies down from Canada to sit in Brownsville and soak up the sun, I guess you know that our winters are a bit miserable.  The summers, on the other hand, make life worth living.
