Photo of the Day: Lily of the Nile in Ecuador

| Taken by Aracely | 6 Comments » | Photo of the Day

We spotted this Zantedeschia Aethiopica during our bike ride from Baños, Ecuador to Puno.  It’s commonly referred to as the Lily of the Nile, Calla lily, Easter lily and Arum lily.

    Zantedeschia aethiopica.
    In Brazil we call it “Copo de Leite”. In English I believe it’s called “Lily of the Nile”. =)

    I think that’s a calla lily.

    Thank you Chris and Wendy for providing us the name of this lily. We have updated our post!

    I think this beautiful lily should be called the “Heart of Two BackPackers”.
    You put so much heart and love into your work, that you deserve a lovely lily named after you.

      Marlene, thank you so much for the compliment and kind words. We love what we are doing and continue to find ways to make it sustainable.

    In Egyptology, the Lily represents the forces of nature:
    the roots are embedded in Earth
    the flower emerges fom the Water
    into a breath of Air
    and is given life by the Fire of Ra.
