DARLING BUDS… DAHLIA

I love Dahlia buds, so photogenic, and flowers are like people, some are more so than others! Dahlia is a genus of bushy, tuberous, perennial plants native to Mexico, Central America, and Colombia. There are at least 36 species of dahlia. Dahlia hybrids are commonly grown as garden plants. The Aztecs gathered and cultivated the dahlia for food, ceremonies, as well as decorative purposes, and the long woody stem of one variety was used for small pipes. The dahlia is named after Swedish 18th-century botanist Anders Dahl. thanks for your time and comments, greatly appreciated, M, (*_*) IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

MY MONDAY ain’t BLUE… GLADIOLI

A 'FRILLED' Gladiola, aaah, when I see that... my resistance is low!!! From start to finish, from buds to blooms, always beautiful. Flaming fire petals, another variety I had never seen!

SUN-LOVERS… SUNFLOWERS

HELIANTHUS Heliotropism is sun tracking...flowers that follow the sun the whole day. As the sun was shying away, I bought this bouquet of Sunflowers (Helianthus), to brighten up the place and your life. I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! With my eyes..

SILK-LIKE… IRIS

#abfav_white I dream of Beauty, I dream of Peace, I dream of all things good, I dream of a different world, I dream of people living side by side, I dream of love, I wake up, beside my love… Not only is the iris a beautiful flower, but also they have several uses. As a live plant they are used as a water purifier. They are ingredients in some perfumes, homemade toothpaste, pottery and herbal medicines. The stylised iris, fleur-de-lis, descends from the white iris which is native to Florence, Italy and which grew even in its city walls. Catherine de Medici carried this symbol of Florence to Paris when she married the king of France where this most famous of irises acquired its nickname, fleur-de-lis. The iris has been associated with France as Louis VII adopted it as a symbol in the 12th Century.

EXOTICA… LILIES

#abfav_white 'I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.' Helen Keller The white trumpet-lilies seemed to reach for ... THE LIGHT?

A PROPER YORKSHIRE WHITE ROSE…

#abfav_white From my garden… here in Yorkshire, one of the last ones this season. A bloom supported by two buds. On 1 August 1759, British troops and their allies defeated the French at the battle of Minden. After the battle, the British soldiers picked white roses and wore them as a tribute to their fallen comrades. Since that day, a number of Yorkshire-based regiments have worn white roses on 1 August to commemorate the events of 1759 and all those from Yorkshire who have fallen in battle since. Yorkshire is my adopted country. I live here by choice and love it. Have a wonderful day, filled with love and beauty, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY OUR IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.com Please do not COPY or use any of my images on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

ASTER-ISSIMO…

#abfav_white Although the common name is Aster and they are known to many by that name, the genus is Callistephus. There is a genus of Aster with approximately 180 species. This Callistephus Aster has a large solitary flower head at the top of the stem and sometimes on branches Names: Aster, Chinese aster, China aster, Matsumoto aster, Callistephus and annual aster Have a wonderful day, and thank you for your time and comments, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

GENETICS… ASTERS

this happens when you have white and purple next to each other, you get ‘mixed’ ones: whurple??? LOLOLOL Asters are almost the latest flowers in the garden here, still some colour though, despite the weather. The most popular asters are Monte Casino and the New England aster. Asters range in colours of white, red, pink, purple, lavender and blue. Like the sunflower, the Aster flower is actually a collection of very tiny tubular flowers, which are grouped together in a central disk and surrounded by a “ray” of flowers or petals. Asters are one of the easiest garden perennials to cultivate.

SALTO MORTALE… FUCHSIA

Fuchsia flowers, some of the last from the garden, the were dangling precariously in the strong wind… I took pity on them lol. So delicate and pretty and in a lovely colour-combinations! Yes the garden is slowly beginning the long winter hibernation, I hope often under the beauty blanket of snow, to stop it from freezing! Because I want to see them back next year. Fuchsia is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic and Haiti) in 1703 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier. He named the new genus after the renowned German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501->1566) The Fuchsia flower has four long, slender sepals and four shorter, broader petals; in many species the sepals are bright red and the petals purple (colours that attract the hummingbirds that pollinate them), but the colours can vary from white to dark red, purple-blue, and orange...

PIUME BIANCHE…

#abfav_white LOL, I often have a lot of fun in the studio and usually it starts with one idea (the serious one?), which brings on another and another and before you know it… the hours have flown and I am left satisfied with many new images! This was one of those days. I love plumes, the are so textile, light and euhh ‘different’ I wish you all a very good day and thanks for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.

LES TROIS PLUMES…

a good alternative for flowers, if you want colour, shapes and textures, is feathers. I had a lot of fun with these, always trying to ‘perfect’ and bring the best. Here straight feathers in graduating Autumnal colours. I wish you all a very good day and thanks for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.

BEACHED…

#abfav_white White Cockle are unique with lots of bumps and ridges lined up in rows or ribs. Cockle shells belong to the large famous family of shells know as the Cardiidae. Living in sandy sheltered beaches throughout the world, they have a distinctive rounded shell which when pieced together and viewed on end resemble a heart shape. A common species in waters throughout the Indo-Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. The rounded shells can have a pronounced heart shape and are frequently ribbed. In both Europe and the Far East cockle shells are one of the most popular edible shell fish. I wish you all a very good day and thanks for all your kind words, time, comments and likes. Very much appreciated.
