CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #44 Yellow Calla Lily Flower) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project


The Yellow Calla Lily or Zantedeschia elliotiana is an ornamental plant grown also for cut flowers. It is a magnificent beauty with its yellow spandix – the spike like inflorescence growing in the centre, surrounded by the large yellow spathe.

I've taken this photograph at the Bloom 2012 Festival in Dublin. I've taken lots of photos that day… the flowers are beautiful, but surely not as artistic as Louise's. In any case, I thought it will be worth giving them a chance to shine.
