Flower on earth, now as a Hosta, Can't Post

but back in Middle-earth what flower could it have been? Maybe it was a Niphredil or a Simbelmyne or perhaps the flower from the tree Lairelosse?

This was blooming two weeks ago between the deck and the dock under a small bushy red maple and we took many pictures in different lights of early morning both my wife and i. The beauty of this flower is extraordinary. Now that i can post pictures, i am able to share this lovely wonder.

The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

A white Hosta? [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey, mine are all purple! That's lovely bloom.

And I'd say it's a related to niphredil, which Tolkien described in Letter #312 as "a delicate kin of a snowdrop". Close enough!

I have one that looks very much like that. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's past it's bloom-time now. But I have several that have never bloomed, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. They look healthy enough, as long as the deer don't find them.

*sigh* That's lovely. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's probably large for a blossom from the white tree, but it surely would belong in middle-earth!

Our's is pretty spent now. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was sure to get out each morning to try a shot or two.

I do not know enough from the flower world to know why something does not bloom. I have that situation with some of my lilacs.

I found that too early [In reply to] Can't Post

and yellow a light washed out the flower. It was the whiter light i think that really sets off a white flower.

On first sight [In reply to] Can't Post

it takes your breath doesn't it. The lines of this flower only continue to grow with time.

I am glad you like it:).
