Flower for the Day Calla Lily 7-27-17

I think the Calla Lily is a combination of peaceful voluptuous beauty. I marvel at its ability
to calm my soul.

Botanically Zantedeschia aethiopica is interesting in that its "petals" form a spathe which surrounds an anthurium-like spike called a spadix which bears tiny flowers. The external presentation is so breathtaking that I never get around to looking inside the sheath.
