** I'm dedicating this image to my dear hubby, Phil, as today (the 4th of February) is our 43rd wedding anniversary! **


I found this gorgeous lily in a delightful little park in Napier, on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Phil and I were investigating the city whilst ashore from our cruise ship, 'Celebrity Century'...
