Pentecost Lilies

A Handmaid News

You hear the words Easter and Lily and your mind envisions bright white beautiful lilies. True to form, we did have white lilies in the garden this year but, unlike the forced ones that bloom for Easter at the florists, they blossomed at the tail end of Easter. And with them, our Pentecost lilies! These are the fiery looking ones that seemed to have glanced at the liturgical calendar this year and bloomed in time for Pentecost. Both the white and red are now gracing our chapel.
