Naked


Belladonna lilies are also known as Naked Ladies because they pop up from the ground without any leaves which follow after the flowering.

Two years ago in my Blue Mountains Journal I posted a Naked Lady. It gets a surprising number of hits ... from no doubt disappointed searchers.

And from the point of view of tasks being done, I'm feeling good because I mowed the grass this weekend and the lawn is all looking neat and tidy.

Reflection:
Genesis 2:25, 3:4-7 (New International Version)
The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame ... "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
