Stargazer

Well, she’s at it again.  Taking images of flowers.  Why?  Because blooms don’t blink and they make me feel good when I look at them.  So here’s some images of my latest bunch of Stargazer lilies.  Namaste’

The Last of Them

Last week I bought a bouquet of flowers and this one is the last of the blooms.  I decided to make it black and white and I like the way it turned out.  We’re having another rain, thunder and lightning storm right now so I’ll be brief.  Might be shutting down my computer soon.  Namaste’

Beauty in Black and White

Iris

Iris with Aged Paper effect

It’s Friday so it must be photograph a flower day.  Well, I don’t do it every Friday but it’s fun to bring home a new bouquet of flowers.  They always make me feel good and I love to photograph them. Remember what I said a few posts ago?  Blooms don’t blink!

When I spotted these irises I just had to get them.  They remind me of when I was a little girl living in Kansas.  My grandpa had a green thumb like crazy and created a beautiful bed of irises on the corner of their property.  Each year when they bloomed, he would go out there with me and explain what variety each one was.  I wish I could remember them all, but the important thing is that I have the memory of him and me … together.  I miss you, Grandpa. Thanks for teaching me to love flowers.

He also loved peonies and had them in several colors in front of their house.  Those I didn’t like so much because they always seemed to have ants crawling all over them.  Yikes! Makes me itch right now thinking about it.

Namaste.
