Heavenly Lilies

The Asiatics bloomed, the LA hybrids are still blooming. This is an Orienpet called “Orania” — one of my favorites.

Ourania: Derived from Greek ουρανιος (ouranios) meaning “heavenly”. In Greek mythology she was the goddess of astronomy and astrology, one of the nine Muses.
Pronounced Ora knee uh. My Greek friend whose child has this name rolls the ‘r’ when she pronounces it.
