Spathiphyllum 'Lynise'

Peace Lily or White Flag 
12 years ago, my team at work, sent me a dish garden that contained this Peace Lily and several other plants, they all live in our back yard now. Transplanted by Bobby Applessed. I never knew the small plants in dish gardens will grow in the ground and get bigger and bigger.

This lily got sick and was moved to The Nursery.  Last week it burst into bloom, had been there for a year or more, just green.


Snap! Snap! again and  Drat, the fence and the trash can are in the pic, so I snapped a shot of the fence


and inserted it in behind the lily using Photoshop (the fence shot can be used as texture in PS)


Yikes! still with the blue trash can. I played and played  ( you knew iI would)


Peace lilies are probably the most popular house plant in the USA. New plants have been treated to flower, if your plant stops flowering, just be patient, Propagation is difficult, so says Denver Plants

This is a super huge beautiful one!!! I have a big one in the living room, it blooms nicely. But I never thought to take it's picture! Now I will when it blooms. It was one of the plants sent to my mom's funeral. I am still drooling over your bees and matching logo!!!!

Well, things are getting better tonight. There are now two posts on my page, my new one and the Foxgloves. Two are better than one.

I love your new banner! At least it's new to me. I'm so sorry I'm so behind on your blog. Can't wait to catch up and see how your sweet girl is doing. Great pics of the lily. I too have one from my dad's funeral. It has been very tolerant of the move and my neglect. HugZ!

This is so beautiful - you're really good at editing the photos. I like the texture of the fence behind the flowers...lovely! Have a lovely Sunday!

Love what you did with the photos.
I have a peace lily in my office, it is probably six or seven years old. I had never thought about them growing outside but then in FL all plantings are possible. The blooms on yours look a lot bigger than the ones mine has.

What EXACTLY does he DO, there in The Nursery???? Whatever it is, if he could "bottle it," he'd make millions!!!

Gosh Sandra I am very impressed not only with saving the flower, the flower, but how good you are at editing. Makes me think of movies and magazines with all the pretty people on it. sandie♥

Fantastic! You are very clever. Praise to Bobby Appleseed. He is wonderful to his plants! These photos are perfect. I love your new header, too. Such a nice post! Happy Sunday to you and hubby.

When I saw the flower, I just went "WOW!" and didn't notice fence nor trashcan.

You take amazing shots, Sandra, and your editing skills are not too shabby, either! I love the Peace Lily, it's one of the very few plants that survive in my house.

EG CameraGirl said...

Peace lilies are lovely! I had one a few years ago. Hmmm. I cannot remember what happened to it.

Ann said...

I'm pretty sure I had one of those plants years ago when I still had hopes of being able to keep house plants alive :)
Good job on changing the background. The fence is perfect for it
