Transformed and elevated

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 29 May 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

At last one lily here in South Shields opens her petals and is at once transformed into an everlasting memory of beauty, she reaches out to grab your heart - elevated to the heights of sensory and visual delight :-)
Doesn't it amaze you?
