"We should concern ourselves only with today, because the lilies in the field toil not but are arrayed in glory"

Matthew 6:28 {via serendipity in Paulo Coelho's
Witch of Portobello}
I recognized the flowers planted in front of the Recoleta Cemetery from my mom's garden. They're Day-lilies; a flower that blooms for one day and then dies. I can't think of anything more poignant in front of a cemetery than a floral reminder of how ephemeral life is: short, but so strikingly beautiful.
