More To Come.........
Orchids are one of my favourite flowers and this one is exquisite! What wonderful patterns and subtle shades of mauve and white and everything in between! Beautiful!
what a gorgeous orchid! the bouquet looks delicious! do you get them from a florist or assemble them yourself? i still call rita flora on la brea when i need flowers to be delivered in los angeles. xoxoxo
This is the most incredible flower I think I have ever seen. It gave me the illusion of the skin of a fish. Quite amazing how life/nature sometimes sopy each other!! Hope you are well! Missing my LA daughter!! Wish I could sen you some of her photos, they are amazing.
Truly sublime, indeed. :)
Love the colour and the close up photography too!
Beautiful! From the first couple of photos I thought it was some sort of underwater animal, like a stingray.
They are indeed gorgeous!!
Thought sea creature at first. Just lovely. Wonderful eye.
Breathtaking is the perfect adjective for there photos!
Beautifully and artistically presented. Love the way you started with the closeup and worked your way out to give us the full picture. It really is an amazing flower; a rare treat. Thank you. :)
Julie & Julia just arrived from Netflix...can't wait to see what to see what Meryl Streep does with this one!
Happy Weekend to you, my friend!! xo
Just devine. I wasn't sure what it was initially - you presented this in a clever way. The colours are amazing. You have such a gift in the way you capture these beautiful blooms - I tried and can't seem to get the same effects, lol!
You know my favourite colour is purple :)
As if from another world.
Only you would be able to isolate that beauty out of a heavenly bouquet
and demonstrate its perfection. Its a gift you have. Of course I'm longing to know where the bouquet came from and why. Not that there needs to be a reason to receive flowers but that is really special.
So very beautiful, I wondered if it was blown glass, just incredible what mother nature is capable of makes me want to run out and purchase a bouquet or planter of orchids..

I must admit I was a bit confused when seeing the first photos here.
So I simply had to scroll down to find out what are Naomi up to now?
Something beautiful as usual. That's for sure.
btw. You can look at Oslo Sunset on March 30. 2009. Taken 1 minutes walk from our Winter Home.

You need to do a coffee table book of your flower photos. They are just exquisite!
Ethereal. Beautiful photos. You can almost feel the velvety petals
You managed to hit a home run with my mother in this post: her favorite flowers in her favorite color.
Beautiful, as always.
Naomi, re your question; we did not get more snow accumulation. We had about 2" of rain, and this morning we had snow flurries, but it didn't stick! Thank God!
Gorgeous post and photos.
My hubby grew orchids as a hobby for several years and was a member of the Mobile, AL Orchid Growers Society. I showed him the pic of your orchid. He said that it isn't a 'New World' orchid. He said that he has seen similar patterns on African orchids and believes the beautiful flower is from an imported African orchid.
That's a gorgeous orchid. Both the color and the pattern.
A truly glorious beauty of an orchid Naomi, and as usual you captured some great photos! I have never seen one like this either. Beautiful!!
Orchid....our national flower and this is beautifully shot Naomi :D
Ooooh another beautiful flower shots! I love orchids because they're just beautiful and dainty. I have one on my study table.
Btw, I am so sorry if I havent been around lately. I still have no internet at our new place and I am hoping that our provider will soon install it.
You have a special mention on my blog. :)
Wow! Stunning photos Naomi! Orchids are one of my favourite flowers, too. Truly fantastic and very exotic this orchid! Love all photos, but principally these you show up the "little person in the center".
Many (((hugs))) to you and to Sweetie!
beautiful.. where did you find it??? I love flowers but have no green thumb...
It's beautiful! I was thinking it was something that lived under water. I thought I saw a nose!
Ingenious. Your perception is an exceptional gift.Beautiful pictures.
