In a Vase on Monday: Calla Lilies

“The calla lilies are in bloom again. Such a strange flower—suitable to any occasion. I carried them on my wedding day….” —Katherine Hepburn in Stage Door, 1937

These beautiful calla lilies, just “in bloom again,” were given to us by our friends Gina and John Fisher on the occasion of re-celebrating their wedding vows in our garden on their twentieth anniversary.

The vase was obtained in Japan in the early ’70’s; the carved ivory piece is a treasure that has been in my wife’s family for generations and is also Japanese in origin.
