Calla lily blooms

Just wondering if anyone knows about how long calla lilies blooms last once they're fully open. Mine seem to be on the brink of coming into full bloom, but I'm going to be out of town till Monday night. I'm guesisng they last longer than 3 days, but I just want to be sure -- if I miss the blooms, I'll be seriously bummed!!!!

What a difference 3 days make!! The callas are in full bloom now, and other plants in the garden are just going nuts!!

Mary Anne, I've learned my lesson about callas -- I assumd the bulbs could winter in the ground, but that was a mistake. I'm digging up the bulb as soon as it starts to get cold!!

Here's another couple of calla pics:

lisi, that's a great calla lily print :) I've got a few calla prints in my house, and I just love them... they're such a simple flower, but so beautiful :) As for the hydrangeas, I'm torn between leaving my blooms on the plant and cutting them to dry. I've been waiting so long to have hydranges, I don't know if I can bring myself to cutting them!!

kstyle, Mary Anne is right, those purple flowers are campanulas or blue clips. I'm hoping they'll get bigger and bushier and start to grow over the edge of the retaining wall.

Mary Anne, my fingers are crossed for your callas!! I had the same thing happen last year -- lots of leaves, but no blooms. Then the bulbs must've died over the winter, because nothing at all came up this year. I bought his white calla about 2 weeks ago at a garden centre. I'm going to dig up the bulb in the fall so it doesn't die like my other bulbs did. Hopefully, I'll have more callas next summer :)
