First, for those who subscribe to my blog by email, I'm sorry. As you have noticed, I changed to a new deliver service but I forgot to cancel the old one. That means you were probably getting two of the same thing for a few days. I think I've solved it. I didn't mean to give you double vision.

All of that aside, here's my 6th and final post (for a while) from the Como Park Conservatory. This time you are looking at a wonderful calla lily bloom. You probably didn't know that these flowers grow best in bogs and ponds and that they are poisonous when fresh but edible after "drying, grinding, leaching and boiling." (Thank you Wikipedia.)
But I've never thought of eating a calla lily: they are delicious when photographed in full bloom.

And, for those of you who like things in black, white and more than 50 shades of grey, here's a converted version. It's not quite as delicious in this form. But perhaps sensuous? But please - leave your neck ties in the closet. )
