The land of the lilies

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Guatemala is the land Lilies

We are so fortunate to have an amazing selection of lilies in Guatemala. If we call Guatemala the land of a thousand flowers, we would be selling ourselves short because I am sure we have tens of thousands.

By the way, this lily is growing very happily in our garden, flowering almost everyday. The flowers only last for a few hours, so you have to be on the look out to catch them as I did here.

    Capturing this creates a fantastic picture, but we are forced to admit that nature is the best artist! Anything and everything grows in LAG!

    • Yeah, I am amaze how nature can give us so many beautiful things provided with the same three ingredients: sunshine, water and soil.

  • Beautiful! Isn’t this and orchid and not a lilly?

    • Maybe, but I am almost certain that it is a lili. 😉

    I’m certainly not a flower expert, but found this picture in Bing search listed under lily flowers, citing Wikipedia reference…evidence favours lily. Picture is not nearly as good as yours Rudy!

    • See Manolo, El Canche found it listed under lilies. Thanks Canche.

    I think it is an iris.
