Mystery


What is this flower?  I pops up in various parts of the garden. A brown spike out of bare soil, no leaves and these small white flowers on top.

Reflection:
Ecclesiastes 11:5 (The Message)
Just as you'll never understand
the mystery of life forming in a pregnant woman,
So you'll never understand
the mystery at work in all that God does.

  3. It is called "Lisbeth's Leafless Lily" or "Joanus Whitebellum"
    Actually there is a guy in Spain, Xavie, who has a blog and he knows the names of all plants, he is a botanist. I have often asked him for help naming plants.
