Good Friday Flowers...

Aptly, Friday Flowers for Good Friday... today is a significant day in the Christian calendar, Good Friday - which commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. This holiday is observed during holy week and is the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. Traditionally the Cala, Arum or November Lilies, or White flowers in general are used for floral arrangements in Churches and religious celebrations on Good Friday symbolising purity, death, and innocence.... I love this image, Magnolia Grandi-flora [one of my favourite blooms] arranged & housed in an ostrich egg [as a vase] makes for an interesting vignette - found from a floral arrangement decorating project on Martha Stewart.
Here's to your Easter[long] weekend - whether you choose celebrate Easter in a spiritual sense , or you're looking forward a long weekend to be shared with family & friends at home or away, or catching up on a few odd jobs around the house & an afternoon nap....Stay Safe & Enjoy. S xxx
