HABIBI… ROSE

Habibi: means darling in Arabian.I love the sound of this word. ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too. One of the last roses in the garden, it’s been rained on and the wind was blowing this beauty mercilessly about, I took pity on it, and brought it in, battered and damaged. "Just Joey" is a Hybrid Tea Rose and has a fruity fragrance (to me it smells like ripe raspberries mmmmmm) which wafts from large ruffled salmon blooms, once opened. This superstar rose is from England. Just Joey roses were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the World Federation of Rose Societies in 1994. The flowers are well-formed with large, high-centred buds, supported by long, straight and upright stems. Each blousy flower can grow to 8-12.5 cm wide. Hybrid Teas are the world's most popular type of rose by choice due to their color and flower form. With their long stems, it gives them the advantage, over others, as cut flowers. Most shrubs tend to be very upright, reaching up to 1.8 metres and are recurrent-flowering (flowering constantly during the season, unlike wild dog roses that flower once).

CARIAD… Hippeastrum

ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too Cariad is sweetheart in Welsh. I love them in our home, especially this time of year! Hippeastrum, these plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis and are cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidacea. As a flower symbol it has come to mean "Dramatic", which seems most fitting here! Hippeastrum is a popular bulb flower for indoor growing, it is Greek for "horseman's star" (also known today as "knight's star"). To have the flower head giving away its little secrets and beauty, slowly… Have a wonderful day, filled with love and thank you for your visit, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS: www.indigo2photography.com Please do not use this image on websites, blogs or any other media without my explicit permission. © All rights reserved

DARLING… TULIPS.

ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too! So expressive! Although tulips are associated with Holland, both the flower and its name originated in the Persian empire. The tulip, or lale (from Persian lâleh) as it is also called in Turkey, is a flower indigenous to Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and other parts of Central Asia. It is unclear who first brought the flower to Northwest Europe. The most widely accepted story is that of Oghier Ghislain de Busbecq, Ambassador from Ferdinand I to Suleyman the Magnificent of the Ottoman Empire in 1554. He remarks in a letter upon seeing "an abundance of flowers everywhere; Narcissus, hyacinths, and those which in Turkish Lale, much to our astonishment, because it was almost midwinter, a season unfriendly to flowers! In Persian Literature (classic and modern) special attention has been given to these two flowers, in specific likening the beloved eyes to Narges and a glass of wine to Laleh. The word tulip, which earlier in English appeared in such forms as tulipa or tulipant, entered the language by way of French tulipe and its obsolete form tulipan or by way of Modern Latin tulipa, from Ottoman Turkish tülbend, "muslin, gauze". (The English word turban, first recorded in English in the 16th century, can also be traced to Ottoman Turkish tülbend.) FOR ALL THOSE I LOVE...

SWEETHEART… HYACINTHS

ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too! A true blue not so common in the flower world and not easy to photograph well... We always have a smaller studio in our home, in between things there is time for some of my favourite photography, playing with lights... The name hyacinth comes from the Greek Hyakinthos, a handsome young man who in Greek mythology was loved by the sun god Apollo. One day they were practicing throwing the discus but the jealous god of the West Wind, who was also in love with Hyakinthos, blew the discus back and it fatally wounded him. From his blood grew a flower which the god Apollo named after him. The bulbs were first brought to Western Europe in the 16th century and were first cultivated in Austria in the 1500's. During the 17th and 18th centuries, like the tulip, it was to be found only in the collections of very rich flower collectors. Because of the hyacinth's pervasive perfume (used in perfumery in France), the bulbs were exorbitantly expensive. Their heady fragrance, their delicacy and their inimitable spring feeling make them very desirable.

WHERE ARE THE BEES… AMARYLLIS

ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too! These flowers are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis. This image of the Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) has very prominent attractions, for bees;;; The name Hippeastrum, given to it by William Herbert, means "Knight's-star-lily", although precisely what Herbert meant by the name is not certain. For many years there was confusion among botanists over the generic names Amaryllis and Hippeastrum, one result of which is that the common name "amaryllis" is mainly used for cultivars of this genus, often sold as indoor flowering bulbs particularly at Christmas in the northern hemisphere. By contrast the generic name Amaryllis applies to bulbs from South Africa, usually grown outdoors. The genus is native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean.

They regaled us with their beauty for days and yes... we are well and truly in full communication again! They speak, I listen, with my eyes.

SWAN of TUONELA… Lysianthus

SWAN of TUONELA… Lysianthus ALL IMAGES ARE BEST seen On Black, yours too! I create my images under the influence… of music. This here: https://youtu.be/zfBTiv3WGU0 The Swan of Tuonela (Tuonelan joutsen) is an 1895 tone poem by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. The white Lysianthus made me think of swans… hence the adapted music in the studio.

FLAMING PEAKS… TULIP

ALL IMAGES ARE BEST On Black, yours too! There are no secrets... it only took me years of experimenting in the studio. First you hit it with everything you've got, like all things in life, hihi, now it is less and less. Just one spotlight set up in the position so that the light catches the edges and part of the flower... until I'm happy... a black bg. I use cutters and flags to shield and play with the light. Photography is an Art, a way of life and seeing life, it is my passion, mental and emotional nourishment. All I can say is experiment, experiment, experiment... the exposure is irrelevant because each flower, light source is different. Make it your own!

TULIPS FROM AMSTERDAM…

On the 20th of January it is the official start of tulip season in Holland, National Tulip Day. The season begins on Dam Square (Damrak) in Amsterdam. This yearly event is organised by Dutch tulip growers who build a special tulip picking garden on Dam Square. It becomes a huge garden, with tens of thousands of tulips, a sea of colours, where thousands of people can pick a free bouquet of flowers every year. This festive event sets of the tulip season... some 1.7 billion Dutch tulips are expected to bring spring into homes around the world. I wish you all the very best and thank you for all your kind words, time, comments, likes and faves. Very much appreciated.

MULTIBERRY...Symphoricarpos

In pink... Symphoricarpos, with common names in English of Snowberry, Waxberry or Ghostberry, is a small genus of about 15 species of deciduous shrubs in the honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae. Common Snowberry (S. albus) is an important winter food source for quail, pheasant and grouse, but is considered poisonous to humans.

NIGHTS IN WHITE SATIN... Narcissus

“I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.” Narcissus papyraceus 'Ziva' (paper-white daffodil), White FRAGRANT Narcissus, very small flowers... ALWAYS BETTER viewed LARGE. This traditional paper-white is said to have the strongest scent of all. It can be planted out in the garden, but it is more often planted up into bulb bowls and 'forced' to grow early as an indoor plant. The scent is unforgettable and will fill your house for days on end. A whole new meaning to 'say it with flowers'???? Already they are back in the shops… is it my imagination or is it earlier each year now?

RED CENTERPIECE… ROSES

RED amongst the white, lol A MANDALA of ROSES… for PEACE, always.. The meaning of mandala comes from Sanskrit meaning "circle." Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolising unity and harmony. The Hindus were one of the first people to use a mandala as a spiritual tool, but the mandalas most individuals are familiar with, are ones made by Buddhists. These dainty roses are small and non-fragrant.

NOW RED ROSES in SUSPENSE…

THE SNOW-BERRIES...Symphoricarpos

#abfav_winter Snowberries, Winterberries… Of seasonal plants! With early snow. Symphoricarpos, with common names in English of Snowberry, Waxberry or Ghostberry, is a small genus of about 15 species of deciduous shrubs in the honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae. Common Snowberry (S. albus) is an important winter food source for quail, pheasant and grouse, but is considered poisonous to humans. This is an older image, one from the days of 'film/negative' photography. When bokeh was called DOF (depth of field) and noise was grain!
