Upside down bouquet at the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show! (Just in time for art prompt Calla Lily.) Thank you Basket of Flowers (swipe) for the inspiration ~ your “Blooming Upside Down” arrangement won my vote for the people’s choice award ~ and I was compelled to capture the callas and hypericum berries in the moment with my handy #micronpen.
Here’s some calla-brated facts I collected about Calla Lilies:
Calla lilies aren’t really lilies. They were first mistakenly recorded as a lily and discovered too late to change their name ~ it had already stuck.
The word Calla comes from the Greek term for beautiful.
They hail from South Africa.
They love each other and grow best in groups.
Their roots are poisonous.
