      We did see hundreds of these yesterday. I believe they are also call the "Star of David" or am I thinking of another lily?

      I’m no botanist, but these are quite large lilies that only grow in very wet areas.

      I was sitting here despairing at man’s ‘inhumanity to man’, when I landed here instead. Your photos reminded me of Nature herself, her beauty, her strength, the way she always perseveres.

      I have the strength to carry on with my day again now.

      Thank you and God/Good Bless.
