More To Come........
OOLOTH, is the name of that flower alstromeria, or Peruvian Lily? From that angle and partial picture I can't be sure.
Your roses photos are lovely, indeed.
It's alstroemeria, Naomi, and I don't blame you for not remembering it!
The way you photograph flowers is so intimate, I often feel as if I'm intruding on them....LOL. You have given me the urge to inspect them more closely, so I can see what you do. Beautiful!
Lovely Naomi. You are so right, most of us just look at the over all beauty and don't see the intricacies. Thanks for the better view.
Nature's beauty is always suitable for the holidays!
BTW, I love clicking over and seeing a flower photo right off the bat. It puts me in a good mood.
Flowers are an integral part of any season - their beauty is timeless. Love them!
Your flowers are always appropriate and welcomed. I like the contrast in photo #1, and the shadows in #4.
Flowers are timeless and always in style!!!!! Thanks!!!!!!
Those are great macro shots Naomi. I love the stargazer lily ( think that's what it is) shot. Beautiful.
At the moment everything is garish red and green and all things Christmassy so it is a special delight to have these gorgeous hues.
All my anniversary flowers have lost their bloom - not quite dead - so are sitting out the rest of their lives in the back porch. That makes me really appreciate the freshness and perfection of your flowers and I look forward to more;)
Beautiful pictures of flowers Naomi. Your skill in taking macro shots is just impeccable. I just love the detail and all. Anyway, I am so sorry if I have been away, but now I am back and finally enjoying my Christmas vacay!
I think it is an alstromeria, too. I love that flower. The photos are wonderful, and they brighten this gray day in NE OH.
Flowers are always a gift to our eyes and mind! They are very beautiful, Naomi! Thanks for sharing!
These are wonderful portraits of flowers, such details and the colours are so vivid. It gives me so much pleasure to look at them.
some of these shots remind me of your paintings.. you have such an eye for beauty !
I think it would be safe to say that Naomi and her blog are the "beauty that sooths"
Such lovely colours!
I'm glad you have these to sooth your soul. May petals cover you as you sleep.
They are lovely and you have made me look more closely at flowers now! There are so many of them and so many varieties of the different ones. It's all quite fascinating and amazing!
Vibrant colors and calming colors. certainly good for the mind and spirit!
Your closeup photos always amaze me...and I love the powdery yellow center of that one flower. It pops right out at you!
PS - I will have to photograph the Yuca for you (before its cooked) so you see what it looks like. It comes in all shapes/sizes and its exterior is brown and rough like a coconut. Let me know if you don't have this in CA; I'll send you some.
So lovely and refreshing! Thanks for posting this little visual treat.
There is indeed an intimacy to your flower photos. The colors are simply breathtakingly lovely with such delicate personalities -- if it can be said they have such identities.
Feed your soul with whatever you need here on your blog and we'll gain nourishment, too.
those really are lovely Naomi. A feast for the eyes and food for the soul. I love the delicate nature of them, and the intense details.
The flowers are lovely, are they around your house and if so, do they require a lot of maintenance as I've always wanted roses and lilies and wondered if I'd have to devote a lot of time to keep them.
And sometimes when the Christmas decor is everywhere it's nice to see mother nature at her best.

Simply gorgeous. That second picture of that rose is sublime - so beautiful and subtle! I really hope that these flowers are bringing you much joy and soothing your soul.
