ET VOILA... TULIP

PINK for OCTOBER. Et Voilà! It is French and means, 'there (it is)', 'here' it is done, often an expression of satisfaction after something is finished. Born in Flanders, my beautiful language is influenced by French, as France is our Southern neighbour. Now, I never realised this, however, a friend made me aware of the fact that I often say it, well... each time after I've done something? How lovely, of course I now hear it each time I say it. Thanx, you know who you are! And I am NOT going to change! I know you love my accent and what I say, LOL. This little fondant-pink tulip said to me:"Et Voilà!" What's it 'saying' to you?

EXPLOSION… NERINE

PINK for OCTOBER. Like a firework display. Saw a lovely flower shop in Scotland, always curious what they sell, and to my amazement saw these… in bud, bought two stems to bring back… as you can see: they made it! Survived the trip and 5 days till this. Nerine, also known as Guernsey lily, Jersey lily, spider lily, is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family. They bear spherical umbels of lily-like flowers in shades from white through pink to crimson. Native to South Africa, there are about 20–30 species in the genus. Though described as lilies, they are not significantly related to the true lilies (Liliaceae), but more closely resemble their relatives, Amaryllis and Lycoris. The genus was established by the Revd. William Herbert in 1820.

SEMI-LILY...

PINK for OCTOBER. BEAUTY LIES OFTEN IN THE DETAIL. Love often shown most in the 'little' attentions and gestures! Ain't that the truth? For some reason this pink lily had lost two petals... showing the inner beauty. They are such showy flowers! Pink lilies stand for wealth and prosperity, but are seen as a symbol of youth and acceptance, as well. Also, their appearance may lead our thoughts to feelings of hope and aspirations. In this dreary season, a dash of colour and fragrance can do wonders! I have another agenda when I buy them... I just know I'll photograph them, cannot resist! I MAKE time! And each time I think... that's it, there's only so much you can do with flowers... and yet again and again, I'll see something new. Being creative is not a choice... it is an urge in me.

QUATTRO-GRAPHY… RANUNCULUS

PINK for OCTOBER. Four candy-pink, Ranunculus, beauties. Persian buttercup (Ranunculus asiaticus) is a perennial plant that can grow to be a foot and a half tall. They have blooms that resemble roses, with simple , like HERE, or branched stems. The petals are often highly lustrous, some species are popular ornamental flowers in horticulture, with many cultivars selected for large and brightly coloured flowers. What got me 'in' to 'flower-photography', was that I was fascinated by ‘light’ and wanted to know more about lighting... That was 27 years ago, it started with painting and evolved into photography. Flowers seemed the perfect subject matter, because of their different colours, shapes, textures, great variety and 'characters', I'd had many a garden, grown my own, so, I started out with an advantage, I knew about flowers... I found a niche in the market, for 15 years now people have been 'raving' about them, asking me how I 'do' it? Copying, imitating and stealing, photos, words and even titles. They say it is the highest ‘accolade’ for an artist? LOL. There is NO magic formula, each flower is unique and treated as such! I do NOT consider myself a 'flower-photographer' but a a photographer who knows how to use lighting well... Glad you enjoy them.

TULIP... REVEALED.

PINK for OCTOBER. Saw this mixed bouquet, spotted a few of these beauties amongst other Spring flowers. Tulips, of the frayed/frazzled variety. Because of the warmth of the lights, they opened and revealed all. I don't talk to flowers, they talk to me and I gladly listen! Yes, in full communication again.

PINK for OCTOBER. those fondant pink tulips were small and very beautiful, also they had a silky shine to them... no 'easy' lighting here...

A GRAND PAS de DEUX… TULIPS

PINK for OCTOBER. A tender pink, a tender gesture… A grand pas de deux is effectively a suite of dances that share a common theme, often symbolic of a love story or the partnership inherent in love, following each other’s movements. I wish you all a very good day and thank you for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated. M, (*_*) SUPPORT the PHOTOGRAPHER: BUY DIRECT!

THE VON TRAPP TULIPS…

Pink for October. The Tulip was originally a wildflower growing in the Central Asia and was first cultivated by the Turks as early as 1,000 AD. In the beginning of the 17th century the tulips were starting to be used as a garden decoration beside the former medicinal purposes. It soon gained major popularity as a trading product, especially in Holland. The interest for the flower was huge and bulbs were sold for unbelievably high prices. Botanists soon found ways of making it an even more decorative and tempting specimen. Hybrids and mutations of the flower were seen as rarities and a sign of high status. In the months of late 1636 to early 1637 there was a complete “Tulip mania” in the Netherlands. Some examples could cost more than an Amsterdam house at this time. Even ordinary men took part in the business. They saw how much money the upper class got in trading and thought that this was an easy way of getting lots of money at no risk. The bulbs were usually sold by weight while they were still in the ground. The trade with the un-sprouted flower came to be called “wind trade”. The traders made fabulous amounts of money every month, and people started to sell their businesses, family homes, farm animals, furnishings and dowries to participate. The government could not do anything to stop it, the trade was all about access and demand. But finally the tulip did not appear to be quite so rare to justify such high prices. Oversupply led to lower prices and dealers went bankrupt and many people lost their savings because of the trade. This “Tulip Crash” made the government introduce special trading restrictions for the flower. It is said that the flower became so popular because of the bright colours, dramatic flames and frilly petals. To have tulips in one’s home was a way to impress, and when the wealth spread down the social ladder, so did the urge for tulips.

CREATIVITY IS A VERY DELICATE FLOWER...

represented here by A PEONY. PINK for OCTOBER. They write (amongst many other things): It is the ability to "think outside the box" ! I ask: WHAT BOX???? LOL I must admit that as a 'creative', 1, being a night-person, my 'best' ideas mostly come after midnight! 2, it is an urge, not a choice... and 3.... as soon as you have 'problems', however small, with client, family, health... the first thing to GO is: my creativity! So please, tee hee, do not upset me, he? Characteristics of the creative personality: Creative individuals have a great deal of energy, but they are also often quiet and at rest. Creative individuals tend to be smart, yet also naive at the same time. Creative individuals have a combination of playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. Creative individuals alternate between imagination and fantasy at one end, and rooted sense of reality at the other. Creative people seem to harbor opposite tendencies on the continuum between extroversion and introversion. Creative individuals are also remarkable humble and proud at the same time. Creative individuals to a certain extent escape rigid gender role stereotyping and have a tendency toward androgyny. Generally, creative people are thought to be rebellious and independent. Most creative persons are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. The openness and sensitivity of creative individuals often exposes them to suffering pain yet also a great deal of enjoyment.

FROM THE HEART... GERBERA

Pink for October, breast cancer month. To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again. -- quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson Gerbera is a genus of ornamental plants from the sunflower family. It was named in honour of the German naturalist Traugott Gerber. It has approximately 30 species in the wild, extending to South America, Africa and tropical Asia. Colours include white, yellow, orange, red, and pink. The center of the flower is sometimes black. It is the fifth most used cut flower in the world (after rose, carnation, chrysanthemum, and tulip). I love 'creating' and playing with light in the studio, comp in camera, gives me a real 'PHOTOGRAPHY' buzz, lol, M, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY MY IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

L'EMBRACE… Gerbera

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The annual international health campaign organised by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease... I think by now everybody knows or sadly has somebody... Breast cancer is about 100 times as frequent among women as among men, but survival rates are equal in both sexes. Please think about making a month long commitment to sharing your pink photos during October!

POT of JOY…CYCLAMEN

#abfav_white The name Cyclamen is presumed to come from Greek 'kyclos', a circle referring to the round tubers, or leaves. Lovely inverted flowers rise out of fantastically patterned rounded or heart-shaped leaves. Some of the patterns, particularly the silver leaved varieties are exquisite and can truly be described as a wonder of nature. From the family Primulaceae, they come in beautiful colours from white, pink, purple, red and combinations of these. Cyclamen like the cool; the smaller the leaves, the cooler they can stand it. The tubers are regarded as the favourite food for pigs in the South of France, Sicily and Italy, hence a rather uncommon common name Sowbread. Cyclamen are poisonous; they have been used medicinally as a powerful purgative, but their toxicity makes this risky. I love them! Full of promise, plenty of buds.

DAHLIA FULL FACE…

A beautiful bloom! 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, (*_*) For more of my other work or if you want to PURCHASE (ONLY PLACE TO BUY MY IMAGES!), VIEW THE NEW PORTFOLIOS AND LATEST NEWS HERE on our website: www.indigo2photography.com IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE YOUNG ONES… DAHLIA

BUDS. You know, I do like Dahlias, all the shapes and colours, however, I love the buds even more? The sepals become translucent, the colour starting to show. So, I thought I’d give them prime-time in the studio and showcase them.

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...

Chrysanthemum. TODAY'S FLOWER for October…

Chrysanthemum. TODAY'S FLOWER for October… Etymological meaning of the Chrysanthemum Flower. It’s surprisingly easy to remember the scientific name for this flower because it’s Chrysanthemum, the same as the common name for gardening varieties. However, the exhibition varieties used by florists and arrangers were divided into their own genus known as Dendranthema. The mums in your yard are likely part of the Chrysanthemum group, while the bouquet sent by the florist contains all or mostly Dendranthema flowers. Aside from small Latin differences, all Chrysanthemums share a common Greek source for their name. The words Chrysos, meaning gold, and Anthemon, meaning flower, were combined to reflect the beauty and value of this blossom. This name carries over the Chinese and Japanese translations, which literally mean gold flower or blossom as well. The Chrysanthemum was first cultivated from wild blossoms by the Chinese,since importation in 1798. Some varieties sport daisy-style blooms with a single row of petals around a central core, while others are so ruffled and doubled they look like pom-poms instead and obscure the core, like this here. Meaningful Botanical Characteristics of the Chrysanthemum Flower The Chrysanthemum is far more versatile than many other decorative flowers. While they don’t provide a very strong smell when growing, there’s a delicate and sweet aroma released when certain types are used for food. Chinese cooks add the blooms to soups and stir fries that need a hint of floral to balance out more strongly flavoured or musky ingredients. The greens are also used for brightening up salads and fried dishes. You can try your hand at making your own sweetly scented Chrysanthemum tea if you have access to flowers that were never treated with pesticides. Speaking of pesticides, organic pyrethins are extracted from this plant to keep bugs away from people, pets, and plants. NASA studies even found potted Chrysanthemums improve air quality! The Chrysanthemum Flower’s Message Is… Support your friends with loyalty and love, especially when they’re facing an obstacle or recovering from a life-changing event. Remember to honour the cycle of life, both at its end and with new beginnings. As a bloom of great importance, the Chrysanthemum symbolises concepts like: Lasting friendship and non-romantic affection Support from your family and loved ones Cheerfulness and good spirits, including cheering up a sad person Rest and recovery after a long trial or challenge Enduring life and rebirth, especially the birth of a child Loyalty and devotion, both romantic and platonic Have a super day and thanks for your ever welcome comments and visit, M, (*_*) And for more of my other work or if you want to purchase, visit here: www.indigo2photography.com PLEASE RESPECT THIS: IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

THE WONDROUS WORLD of THE PINK OYSTER MUSHROOMS...

#abfav_autumn FOUND/ BOUGHT them on the Farmers' market. The Oyster mushroom, or Pleurotus ostreatus, both the Latin and common name refer to the shape of the fruiting body. I love the detail in the gills! Many also believe that the name is fitting due to the flavour resemblance to oysters. The pink colour will fade on cooking. In fact, cooked oyster mushrooms all look the same, regardless of the colour they started as. These beautiful Oyster Mushrooms seem more like fast growing coral than easy to grow delicately flavoured treats.. I wish you all the very best and thank you for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.
