Beauty, more than bitterness, makes the heart break. ~Sara Teasdale
We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting. ~Kahlil Gibran
Here it is, before and after blooming. As you can tell, I had to stand in the rain to shoot, and, of course the photo doesn’t do the bloom justice. Just the whiteness of this flower is breathtaking, let alone its exotic beauty. Hoping next year for fair skies!
