variations on a theme:

Lillium formosanum
& Mrs.Delany

 another lady in black.
 and the lily- the most recent incarnation of Mrs. Delany, from Stefano Pilati at Yves Saint Laurent.


 from Fall 2012 at Vogue.com

& never one to shy away from appearing in a little augury story-Carolina Herrera- with her own ideas on black and floral-here in on her shift-an herbarium flower, tape and all-

 from Spring 2012 at Vogue.com

& with the onset of some rain today-the Lilies came in-
I welcomed them.

& tonight they submitted to more braggart-y photographs from Me, and what did I do?
-just dug the holes for the bulbs,

No, Wait, that was my brother.

& my benefactress?
Sandra Jonas, perhaps in the spirit of the story, my Duchess of Portland, or my Queen Charlotte- emerged from the cloak I wrote her in- at  EDEN, here.

No-you're not seeing double, Sandra brought her Lilies inside to hold court too.

...to be continued.
