Easter Lilies

I have some very interesting news for those of you who gave something up for Lent.  There's a dirty little secret about Lenten promises that no one ever told me about (or I forgot it, which is entirely possible).  I checked many Catholic websites and found out that technically, Lent ends on Holy Thursday, i.e. TOMORROW!!!  Did any of you know this?  Unfortunately, Friday and Saturday are traditionally fasting days and that's why Lenten promises are extended until Easter Sunday.  I knew it was too good to be true.  I've been counting down the days till Easter since, oh I don't know ... Ash Wednesday because I just love coffee (and Coke and tea) so much.  Like, THIS much even.  I know some of you are right there with me - just waiting to indulge in alcohol, cheese, etc.  But don't worry, just four more days till you can have your guilty little pleasures!

To keep your mind off your various temptations, I picked some very pretty pink Easter lilies just for you.  (Well, the sign at Safeway said they were Easter lilies but I don't actually know if that's true.)  I hope you like them!

  1. I'm not religious so I've never given up anything for Lent but I admire people who do. Give up caffeine?! Holy moly, I think my head would explode if I didn't have coffee!!

    I'm so glad you bought the lilies for us! How lovely they are :)

  3. I've always thought about giving something up for lent, but just never have. I guess I figured I either couldn't do it or if it is bad enough to give up for a little bit, I should just go ahead & say bye for good!

  4. As the child of a florist, I have to tell you that I don't think those are not Easter lilies. I mean, they are lilies, and it is Easter week, but you know what I mean. I am pretty sure those are Asiatic lilies. They are prettier than Easter lilies anyhow! The color and photos are gorgeous. I kind of wish I had them in 8x10 hanging on my office walls, actually.

  7. Thanks everyone!

    Lindsey - Safeway lies! Guess I can't really trust the supermarket floral department. If you really want prints for your office, we can make that happen. :)
