This is a Grand Crinum Lily. She spent weeks looking for the perfect photo op. The blossom begins to wilt almost as soon as it opens and it is difficult to find a fresh, crisp flower. In this photo you can see a few buds and many wilted remains — and, miracle!, a few fresh flowers.

At home She downloaded the photos. He didn’t seem too impressed. “You certainly didn’t center those well,” He muttered.
“Hey, I’m short.” She answered. “I was taking these shots blind. I think, under the circumstances, they came out pretty well. You could have come and helped me, you know.”
“I was helping,” He said. “I was making certain nobody crunched your car.”
Boggled by his priorities, She shook her head.
