This is my contribution to the Flower Fest - The A - Z of Flowers for the Letter L.

The plants of the genus Lilium are the true lily plants, comprising a genus of about 100 species in the lily family, Liliaceae. They are important as showy and large flowered garden plants, and in literature.


Lilies are native to the northern temperate regions. Their range in the
Old World extends across much of Europe, the north Mediterranean, across most of Asia to Japan, south to the Nilgiri mountains in India, and south to the Philippines. In the New World they extend from southern Canada through much of the United States. A few species formerly included within this genus have now been placed in other genera. These include Cardiocrinum and Nomocharis.

They are commonly adapted to either woodland habitats, often
montane, or sometimes to grassland habitats. A few can survive in marshland and a single one is known to live as an epiphyte (L. arboricola). In general they prefer moderately acidic or lime-free soils.


Lilies are usually erect leafy stemmed herbs. The majority of species form naked or tunic-less scaly underground
bulbs from which they overwinter. In some North American species the base of the bulb develops into rhizomes, on which numerous small bulbs are found. Some species develop stolons. A few species form bulbs at or near the soil surface .

Many species form stem-roots. With these, the bulb grows naturally at some depth in the soil, and each year the new stem puts out
adventitious roots above the bulb as it emerges from the soil. These roots are in addition to the basal roots that develop at the base of the bulb.

The large
flowers have three petals along with three petal-like sepals, often fragrant, and come in a range of colours ranging through whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds, purples, bronze and even nearly black. Markings include spots, brush strokes and picotees.

The plants are summer flowering. Most species are
deciduous, but Lilium candidum bears a basal rosette of leaves for much of the year. Flowers are formed at the top of a single erect stem, with leaves being borne at intervals up the stem.

By the time we reach adulthood, many of us have had the good fortune to have at least one best friend. If we have moved around or changed our life situation repeatedly, we may be lucky enough to have had several. The best friend relationship is often our earliest intimate peer relationship, and it can be a source of great warmth and connection throughout our lives. The details of best friendship change as we grow up and grow older, but the heart of it remains the same. Our best friends are a warm refuge in which we feel free to be fully ourselves, to share our deepest secrets, to rest when we are tired, to celebrate when we are happy-a place in which we feel utterly welcome to give and receive that most precious of all gifts, love.

Most intimate relationships hit bumps from time to time, and one of the hallmarks of an enduring best friendship is its ability to ride out the turbulence and remain intact even as it faces changes. Our best friends are those who manage to love us through all of our transitions, as we do the same for them. We find ways to embrace and appreciate the differences that set us apart and offer love and support no matter what. We allow each other to be exactly as we are at a given moment, even as we allow each other to change over time. In this way, best friends sometimes feel like family. We know we will stick together regardless of where our individual paths lead.

We may be on the phone with our best friends every day, or we may not have spoken for a year, yet we know that our bond will be strong and immediate when we do connect. This bond ties us together even when we are apart and draws us blissfully back into the warm refuge of each other's company when our paths bring us together again.

Four Seasons

Here's the Spring;

A Bright and Lovely Season;

Blessing the Earth with drizzling Showers;

Covering the Land with Beautiful Flowers.

Soon, the Days grow Long;

As the Summer Dawns;

While we Sip Lemonade in the Shade;

Watching the Setting Sun that Fade.

Red, Orange, and Golden Color;

Adorn the Trees all Over;

Autumn's here with Breeze Around;

Making Every Leaf Kiss the Ground.

Merry Winter Soon Begins;

As shoppers shop with Layered Clothes;

The Golden Trees are now Bare;

As they Grasp the Misty Air.

San Francisco

The list of attractions in San Francisco goes on. Visitors to San Francisco are never far from one of the many attractions that has put this coastal city on the map. From grand, sweeping views of its neighborhood color and character, from glimpses of history to the world-class dining and shopping - San Francisco is home to a little bit of everything.

City and County of San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California and the fourteenth-most populous in the United States.

As a result of the California Gold Rush in 1848, the city entered a period of rapid growth. After being devastated by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt. It is located on the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula and is the focal point of the San Francisco Bay Area. San Francisco is the second most densely populated major city in the United States.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of SFO is the Most Magnificent beautiful Rust Colored Suspension Bridge I have ever seen. Its the Golden Gate Bridge, the Icon of the SF Bay Area.

Below are the Pictures that I shot whenever I visited this hustle bustle city.

Other than the Golden Gate Bridge, the Many things that come to my mind when I think of San Francisco are the Beautiful Lined Houses, The Lambard Street, The Alcatraz, Chinatown, View of the SF Downtown from the Vista Point, Ancient Magnificent Tall Buildings and a network of Cables and the Union Square.

Union Square is one of the main retail and cultural centers and is a vibrant heart of downtown San Francisco. Its a spacious park surrounded by shopping centers of famous brands like Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Tiffany & Co etc.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of San Francisco. Don't forget to drop by at these attractions when you visit the San Francisco Peninsula.
