floral beauty

Here are some more pretty flowers....For me, each of these pictures could be a 'card'......I don't have much to say about them. I will let them speak for themselves....... What I love, besides the colors, is the abstractness of some of these..... I love that there are a number of flowers in each of the pictures above....And yet, no one flower is the focus of the picture. It is all of them together in each photograph...... Then above, we have a very close look at a petal of that very beautiful flower called an Astromeria. (Thank you Kenju.....) There is this stunning combination of colors..... And the delicacy of the inside of the inside.....And below, a different and rich color of the same flower.....A gorgeous combination, too..... I love the purple and the blue combination.....and below, a somewhat closer look at another one of these gorgeous Astromeria's...... And below, a more conventional photograph. This one would make a lovely card, as well.....The yellow of that Rose is so rich....and I love the little itty bitty white flowers with it...... All of these flowers were in two different arrangements by the wonderful Van of The Conservatory....And they lasted and lasted and lasted.....And below, one more abstraction.....So very very beautiful...... Like a lovely soft painting......




More To Come.........

Just stunning! The first cream colored rose and the yellow one DO look like pictures I've seen on Hallmark cards. You have such a good eye. It doesn't hurt that Nature is such an artist too. :-)

Naomi.... these pictures are gorgeous, so yummy, almost good enough to eat!
I've had some computer troubles and now I'm busy busy with rehearsals for our annual Variety Show, I wish you could come and see it!

That 'itty bitty white flower' looks like Lily of the Valley which our French son gave to us some years back and then it disappeared and - thanks to Karen - is now blooming again.

I hope this works but in case it doesn't it is 'Spandau Ballet on You tube with Jonathan Ross.'

It's a nostalgic glimpse of the eighties when Glam Rock ruled but you may not like it:) Or were they the Romantics?

They are all so lovely Naomi!! Since I took the watercolor painting class every picture I see now I think, "Oh, that'd be so pretty to paint!!" That's what I thought about these photos too!!

Hugs to you and Sweetie!!

Those are such beautiful flowers, Naomi, and you have done them majestic justice with your camera.

I'm sorry for my absence, but with the impending surgery, work overload and the time of year, I have been struggling with my blog and friends.

I'm feeling a little more human today and am so glad I came here to see these stunning flowers, examples of Mother Nature at her very best.

Beautiful! These flowers are amazing!

I love the combination of that particular blue and that purple and had no idea you could find it in a REAL flower. You captured it beautifully!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend! :)

I love Astromerias! In fact I have some in a vase on my side table as I type :)

Gorgeous photos Naomi. I think the very last one is my favourite though. Something about the abstract shapes and gorgeous colours that go so well together.

A real spirit-lifter for the day. You do this so beautifully!

Wouldn't a bedroom decorated in exactly these colors be lovely ...

All those flowers are quite beautiful. I wish I was surrounded by such beauty. Fantastic pics.

Breathtaking, as always. You are truly without equal in the world of nature photography, I've never seen anything better. Did you always take pictures or is this a relatively new vocation?

Naomi,
Those pictures are so gorgeous they are edible candy ! The flowers look good enough to eat !
You have an amazing eye for capturing them like that... You could be as big as Thomas Mangelson is with animals with your nature photos...

And I AM fat as a house after the London trip :) Have to lose 30 pounds I've put on since January !!!

The flowers are lovely, Naomi. I love the macro shots. There is so much detail. We tend, I thin, not to take the time to look...

Thanks Naomi, for your nice comment on my blog. I agree with you, animals should be in their natural habitat, not in a Circus. But this Circus on the post is only a Theatre Circus, there is no animals on it, fortunatelly.
A big hug to you!
