St Joseph's lilly

Sometime in February the St. Joseph lillies start magically appearing. This
one I photographed on the edge of the Mpumalanga escarpment, near
Kaapsehoop, a step or two away from Adam's Calendar.
They are always a sign to me that the days of summer are shortening, that
autumn is approaching. Nevertheless I find them extremely beautiful and love
that my house if filled with their scent. It also gives me great pleasure to
know that city folk pay astronomical amounts for these flowers that grow
here in wild abundance.
