THE HOLLY AND THE IVY…

Both from the garden. "The Holly and the Ivy" is a traditional British folk Christmas carol. "The holly and the ivy, now are both well grown" The Holly and the Ivy is thought to have Pagan origins and could therefore date back over 1000 years. It is most unusual for a carol like the Holly and the Ivy to have survived over the years especially during the stern protestant period of the 17th century. The Holly and the Ivy have always been taken indoors during the winter the hope being that the occupants would survive difficult conditions just like the hardy Holly and the Ivy. The colours of the Holly and Ivy, green and red are traditionally associated with Christmas. I wish you a day full of peace and goodness, thanx, 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!!!)

HOLLY-HOLLY-HOLLY

THE COLOURS OF CHRISTMAS... For December I upload images to do with the festive season. This is many different things... Personally the colours of Christmas are still (mostly) red, green and white! Holly berries are somewhat toxic to humans, though their poisonous properties are overstated and fatalities almost unknown. They are extremely important food for numerous species of birds and are also eaten by other wild animals. In the fall and early winter the berries are hard and apparently unpalatable. After being frozen or frosted several times, the berries soften, and become milder in taste. During winter storms, birds often take refuge in this evergreen, which provides shelter, protection from predators (by the spiny leaves) and food. I wish you all the very best, and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

THE HOLLY and THE IVY…

"The Holly and the Ivy" is a traditional Christmas carol, which is among the most lightly Christianised carols of the Yuletide, the holly and the ivy being among the most familiar Druidic plants. "Holly and ivy have been the mainstay of Christmas decoration for church use since at least the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, when they are mentioned regularly in churchwardens accounts" (Roud 2004). I'm not surprised that they are so popular, they are fresh, green, with the jolly berries AND plentiful in the garden, this time of year, and also, so very decorative. But ooohhh so prickly too! I am trying to use as little light and dof as possible, a challenge that I love. I find it necessary and refreshing to regularly go back to the basics of photography. As a discipline, I used to go out with my Nikon F4, a 50mm lens, b&w or colour film. Now of course it is much more with the 'ease' of digital, however, I do NOT take hundreds of photos, the discipline is, I use my camera as a 'film' camera, each push of the button COSTS! So, I compose carefully, wait, look, ... if I AM SURE, pleased... then, I click! Or like here, I'll preconceive a scenario, go in the studio, set it up and photograph it when I am happy that I have the result in front of my eyes that I had in my head. I wish you a day full of peace and goodness, thanx, 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!!!)

OF MISTLETOE…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ Viscum album – the original mistletoe of European myth, legend and tradition. The word 'mistletoe' derives from the older form 'mistle', adding the Old English word tān (twig). 'Mistle' is common Germanic (Old High German mistil, Middle High German. mistel, Old English mistel, Old Norse mistil). In France it was often given as a Porte Bonheur - a gift for luck, particularly for the New Year, rather than at Christmas. This association with peace may have origins as ancient as the kissing custom, as the plant is associated with peace in the Norse, Greek and Roman traditions about mistletoe. The peace association was a tradition in Britain too at one time, though it has become eclipsed by the kissing custom feature. During the First World War embroidered ‘silk’ postcards sent from the Front at Christmas often depicted mistletoe, perhaps emphasising mistletoe’s value both as a symbol of peace and as a message for loved ones. There are many explanations of the kissing tradition – though most relate either to the Norse legend of Baldr or to the view that mistletoe is an ancient symbol of fertility. The most obvious fertility aspect is that, as an evergreen growth on a deciduous host, mistletoe, as a parasitic can be seen as symbolic of the continuing ‘life-force’ (and vitality/fertility) of the host tree through the winter (which may be particularly significant if the tree is your sacred oak, in Druidic traditions). But that’s not all. The fertility imagery is enhanced by European mistletoe’s shape and form – the forking paired branches, paired leaves and berries full of white sticky juice hint of sexual organs in shape, and in content. According to the custom, any two people who meet under a hanging of mistletoe are obliged to kiss. The custom may be of Scandinavian origin. It was described as early as 1820 by Washington Irving in his ‘The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon’: ‘The mistletoe is still hung up in farm-houses and kitchens at Christmas, and the young men have the privilege of kissing the girls under it, plucking each time a berry from the bush. When the berries are all plucked the privilege ceases!’ I wish you all the very best, and thanx for all your kind words, time, comments and faves. Very much appreciated.

When the berries are all plucked the privilege ceases." Quote from movie Mickeys Christmas Carol (1983): Belle: Ebeneezer? Scrooge: Yes, Isabelle? Belle: My eyes are closed, my lips are puckered, and Im standing under the mistletoe. Scrooge: You're also standing on my foot... LOL!

THE SPLENDOUR OF WILD GRASSES...

“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass... it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.” quote by Henry Miller (American Author and Writer, 1891-1980) YORKSHIRE FOG or Holcus lanatus. On a tour in our garden this Summer, in between two showers, I found these grasses, they love this type of weather, thrive on it! Very common in grassland and moorland, also in waste ground and neglected gardens. The birds must have brought in the seeds, or they glided in on the wind... When I looked closely, I saw all the beautiful colours, the shimmer... the beauty! Decided I could make a lovely, strong and graphic design, comp in camera. Up close and personal, there's beauty in everything? (well most...lol.)

HAVE YOU EVER LOOKED AT THE SPLENDOUR OF WILD GRASSES?

"Nature always wears the colours of the spirit."(Ralph Waldo Emerson) YORKSHIRE FOG or Holcus lanatus. On a tour in our garden last Summer, in between two showers, I found these grasses, they love this type of weather, thrive on it! Very common in grassland and moorland, also in waste ground and neglected gardens. The birds must have brought in the seeds, or they glided in on the wind... When I looked closely, I saw all the beautiful colours, the shimmer... the beauty! Decided I could make a lovely, strong and graphic design, comp in camera.

SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS...

Splendour in the Grass What though the radiance which was once so bright Be now for ever taken from my sight, Though nothing can bring back the hour Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind; In the primal sympathy Which having been must ever be; In the soothing thoughts that spring Out of human suffering; In the faith that looks through death, In years that bring the philosophic mind. William Wordsworth To put this text into context, we've just lost a dear friend, she had a good life, she was a beautiful person... MORE THAN EVER: Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

GRASS is NOT always GREEN!!!!

“The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.” quote by Henry Miller (American Author and Writer, 1891-1980) Yorkshire Fog, Holcus lanatus I know that most people consider this to be 'weed'... However, I like it, because of the beautiful colours, the structure, it starts as a 'cat's tail'? Disclosing a bit more each day... till it takes the shape of a small tree... Also, when the light and wind play with them, it can make me think of fireworks, the silvery shimmer dancing on an secret tune only they hear... thank you all again, for your support and comments, and also for all the beauty, Magda, (*_*) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

GRAPHIC GREEN GRASS...

During a stop on our outing to Malham Moor, the views were stunning, the silence deafening, the sky high, the grasses glisteningly waving on the breeze... photoinf.com/Golden_Mean/Petteri_Sulonen/Geometry_in_Comp... I'd taken my shots and was just enjoying everything, while Paul was still busy (aah, the joy of both being photographers... we understand and have a lot of patience with each other) I looked at the verges and discovered grasses, amongst the abundant Yorkshire Mist, I had never seen.. picked three and photographed them for you... Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

MY 'INTERPRETATION' OF THE GOLDEN RULE OF THIRDS....

The Golden Mean or Golden Section is a mathematical constant, a ratio that appears in nature and was discovered by Pythagoras in the 5th century B.C.E. The rule of thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in visual arts namely painting, photography, design and across cultures and history, designers such as artists and architects, composers and poets have adopted the Golden Mean as a ratio that is pleasing to the human eye. Rotation of plant leaves on a stalk follow the Phi (φ) ratio insuring that the same position is not used twice, affording optimal exposure of underlying leaves to sunlight. In philosophy, especially that of Aristotle, the golden mean is the desirable middle between two extremes, one of excess and the other of deficiency. For example courage, a virtue, if taken to excess would manifest as recklessness and if deficient as cowardice. To the Greek mentality, it was an attribute of beauty. I know the 'rules of composition'... and personally, once I knew them... I loved to 'break' them... creatively that is... After photographing the grasses, well, not wanting to throw them away, I put them in some water, to my surprise, they flowered, well, as you can see, again different stages. I am still fascinated by stark compositions... and I love (need) new challenges... thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *) For more of my other work visit here: www.indigo2photography.co.uk IT IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN (BY LAW!!!)

SWAN MILKWEED…

Gomphocarpus fruticosus: Asclepias fruticosa is the old botanical name, Narrowleaf cotton bush, Swan bush, Swan milkweed the popular ones. Here: the seedbox/fruit Inflated green and later light brown, papery pod or follicle; short bristly hair cover the outer surface; dark seeds have silvery cotton wool-like attachments that facilitate wind distribution. Asclepias fruticosa is a species of milkweed native to South Africa. It is also common in New Zealand where it is the main host of the monarch butterfly. The plant's tissues contain sufficient cardenolides that consumption of significant quantities of the plant's leaves, stems, or fruit may lead to death in livestock and humans. Brought this from Sardinia to photograph in my studio.

MAPLECOPTERS…

AB FAV for today… https://www.facebook.com/groups/1148438991917313/ It was September, the month of melancholy, another Summer almost over, Autumn already in the air but not yet visible in nature... Is it going to be a long Winter... With the lovely long evenings? One night we had some gusty winds, earlier this year, a bit thundery, so in our garden, on the grass were hundreds of those, blown off their home, the maple tree... No seed in there yet, they were fresh, so no flying... we'd have to wait for full Autumn. The innocent fun you could have with those twirly thingies, throwing them up, running after them (kept us fit!), guarding and treasuring your 'best' ones! Speak of childhood memories!!! The distinctive fruit are called samaras, "maple keys", "helicopters", "whirlybirds" or "polynoses". I call them ‘MAPLECOPTERS’! These seeds occur in distinctive pairs each containing one seed enclosed in a "nutlet" attached to a flattened wing of fibrous, papery tissue. They are shaped to spin as they fall and to carry the seeds a considerable distance on the wind. People often call them "helicopters" due to the way that they spin as they fall. During World War II, the US Army developed a special air drop supply carrier that could carry up to 65 pounds of supplies and was based on the Maple seed. Seed maturation is usually in a few weeks to six months after flowering, with seed dispersal shortly after maturity. However, one tree can release hundreds of thousands of seeds at a time. Depending on the species, the seeds can be small and green to orange and big with thicker seed pods. The yellow seeds are released individually and almost always without the stems. Some seeds can remain dormant in the soil for several years before germinating.

Now, DO NOT rush out to get one of those! It is not a priority, has quite 'limited' usage, is particular and specific and not the easiest to use!

ARC DE TRIOMPHE. Moluccella or Bells of Ireland.

I FEEL TRIUMPHANT, BECAUSE, EVEN AFTER ALL THE "DISLIKES"... I STILL HAVE 459.000 VIEWS, 41.800 LIKES AND 18.800 FAVES!!!! The more you dislike, the more I upload and you eventually run out??? I have images galore! These two stems of Irish Bells seemed to welcome, in the form of an ARCH of TRIUMPH, the three small red roses ... Whether Moluccella is actually a flower or variety of foliage is often open to debate. In fact, Moluccellais a member of the mint family and has a unique perfume all of its own. Bells of Ireland originally came from Syria and the eastern Mediterranean; a hardy annual with flowers that never fail to impress, blooms which are the most exquisite shade of lime green. Since Victorian times, Bells of Ireland have been considered a symbol of good luck - the perfect flower to send to someone starting a new job, or moving to a new home. Giving my flowers SOUL?

TIDDELY-OM-POM-POM... Green Trick ‘Temarisou’.

"Tiddely-om-pom-pom!" is a line from the song: I do like to be beside the seaside... Bred by Hilverda kooij in Holland, and winner of countless awards last year is a stylish Dianthus barbatus called Green Trick ‘Temarisou’ First, this is not a true carnation at all (Dianthus caryophyllus) which I thought it was judging by the leaves and stems but rather, it is a Dianthus barbatus cultivar, or Sweet William. But a Sweet William that looks more like a ball of moss? As far a cut flower trends go, this amazing new variety is a terrific example of how plant breeders are focusing on new lifestyle flowers that meet the needs of today's new consumer. Short, modern containers with dense mounds of spiky green is exactly what stylists and hip florists are looking for. There IS a trend in EVERYTHING! Three cool green pom pommy things are as sexy as, well, green pom pommy things? THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated.

Imported from Belgium... I forgot to ask the name, from the fragrance and the leaves, it seems to be a Carnation... must be new, cannot find any info on it! Anybody???

I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.

THE SEXUALITY of THE PARROT TULIP…

Monty Don writes on that subject: “There is something in the form and detail of tulips that manages to be beautiful while being outrageously sexy. You cannot hide this in a cloak of horticulture or blind botany. From the first, men have lusted after tulips, ruined themselves for possession of them exactly as they have lusted after women. All the great courtesans were tulips. Cleopatra and Marilyn Monroe were tulips. The full curve of hip and buttock with tuck of waist is drawn in satin petals. The admiration is sexual more than aesthetic, and there is more than a touch of sexual ambiguity. The folded leaves around the swollen bud are vulval, yet at the same time they are overtly and precisely phallic, knowing no sexual boundaries. Tulips are our temple paintings, a celebration of beauty and sex decorously growing in the safety of the garden.” Sometimes, just sometimes, a flower will reveal all!

LIME GREEN BROCCOFLOWER...

IS THIS where Jean-Paul Gaultier got his INSPIRATION for Madonna's special BRA???????? HAHA, BROCCOFLOWERS are generally considered to have a milder and slightly sweeter flavour than their close cabbage-family relatives.There are two forms of Brassica oleracea that may be referred to as broccoflower, both of which are considered cultivars of cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis) because they have inflorescence meristems rather than flower buds when harvested. One is shaped like regular cauliflower, the other has a spiky appearance. They share a curd colour that is a similar hue to that of broccoli. Romanesco, also known as Romanesque cauliflower or Romanesco broccoli, is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is light green in color. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, as a vegetable its texture is far more crunchy, and its flavour is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.

There was a mini cabbage in the shop… A creative photographer came along and spotted it, picked it up, turned it around and around, looking at all the beautiful angles… could not resist, saw the potential… and bought it.

MINI POINTED CABBAGE… Inside and outside. I love the curves and lines in this ‘Pointed cabbage’. Pointed, hispi, hearted or sweetheart cabbage as it is sometimes known is a type of green cabbage with green leaves and a pointed head.

DESIRE?

A GREEN MOOD! I had nothing to do with this! I'd taken them out of the wrap, put them down, set lights up, and I came back to this! A beautiful curved curl, to me, it looked like it was sculpted? Curling with desire? LOL Plants are essential to the balance of nature and in people's lives. The photosynthesis,in which water and carbon dioxide are combined by the energy of light, conducted by land plants and algae is the ultimate source of energy and organic material in nearly all ecosystems. Photosynthesis radically changed the composition of the early Earth's atmosphere, which as a result is now 21% oxygen. Plants are the primary producers in most terrestrial ecosystems and form the basis of the food web in those ecosystems. This was the stem and the leaves supporting the beautiful Tulip-heads. Stems have four main functions which are: * Support for and the elevation of leaves, flowers and fruits. The stems keep the leaves in the light and provide a place for the plant to keep its flowers and fruits. * Transport of fluids between the roots and the shoots and blooms . * Storage of nutrients. * The production of new living tissue. The normal life span of plant cells is one to three years. Stems have cells called meristems that annually generate new living tissue. 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.

WAVES of GREEN...

MY IMAGES ARE FOR SALE ONLY FROM ME, DIRECTLY, see below! When I was photographing the yellow tulips I suddenly saw the beauty of the curvaceous leaves... View On proper Black I love images like these, what more can I say? LOL. Tulip stems have few leaves, with larger species tending to have multiple leaves. Plants typically have 2 to 6 leaves, with some species having up to 12. The tulip's leaf is strap-shaped, with a waxy coating, and leaves are alternately arranged on the stem; these fleshy blades are often bluish green in color.Leaves store food and water. Plants are essential to the balance of nature and in people's lives. The photosynthesis,in which water and carbon dioxide are combined by the energy of light, conducted by land plants and algae is the ultimate source of energy and organic material in nearly all ecosystems. Photosynthesis radically changed the composition of the early Earth's atmosphere, which as a result is now 21% oxygen. Plants are the primary producers in most terrestrial ecosystems and form the basis of the food web in those ecosystems.

SO : the MORE you dislike, the more I upload and you eventually run out??? I have images galore! Green-eyed monster? Meaning: Jealousy. Origin: Green is a colour associated with sickness, possibly because people's skin sometimes takes on a slightly yellow/green tinge when they are seriously ill. Green is also the colour of many unripe foods (immature?) that cause stomach pains. A couple of fabulous quotes on envy and jealousy: A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. quote by Robert A. Heinlein Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies. quote byElizabeth Bowen I don't talk to plants, they talk to me and I gladly listen!

FERN TREE...

A Fern leaf that thinks it is a (Christmas?) tree... lol. ANOTHER MUST, View On proper Black It came in a mixed flower-bouquet, I loved the way it looked so much that I put it in a separate vase, lovely... There are four particular types of habitats that ferns are found in: moist, shady forests; crevices in rock faces, especially when sheltered from the full sun; acid wetlands including bogs and swamps; and tropical trees. I often see them on roofs, walls, places where NOTHING else grows. Ferns have been studied and found to be useful in the removal of heavy metals, especially arsenic, from the soil.

THE GREEN CROSS of ENERGY...

There is the Red Cross... to save people... There is the Blue Cross... to save animals... WHY NOT A GREEN CROSS TO SAVE ENERGY/ and our planet? These here are the stems of Narcissus... Stems have four main functions which are: * Support for and the elevation of leaves, flowers and fruits. The stems keep the leaves in the light and provide a place for the plant to keep its flowers and fruits. * Transport of fluids between the roots and the shoots and blooms . * Storage of nutrients. * The production of new living tissue.

GRANNY SMITH FESTIVAL...

Maria Anna Smith (1799 Sussex UK) known as "Granny" Smith immigrated to Australia to her community in the Ryde area of Sydney, with her husband and children. One day she tossed some rotten tart green French crabapples away on her property, not expecting any to grow since they were hybrids. That was in 1868. Surprisingly, one of the seeds sprouted, and grew into a young green sapling. The apples on the tree were sweeter than the mother apples had been, but still had a bit of a tart bite to them. She began selling them and they were known as "Granny" Smith's apples.

THE COLOURFUL SEASON…

#abfav_mulicolour Slowly the signs are appearing, the colourful season that is Autumn, is upon us. Each season has its own colour-palette, Spring with the fresh and pastel, Summer with the rich and warm tones, Autumn with russet and more ‘spent’ hues and then Winter, the cool and more stark and dark colours. I love each one for these particular reasons. This was after the rain in Brugge, often you’ll find walls covered with Virginia Creeper (parthenocissus) clinging on. Short-lived amazing colours.

NOT READY TO GO YET...

Still lots of green leaves about, these are basking in the treatcherous sun that is drying them, slowly 'tanning' them a crisp brown. The chestnut young and by far not ready... gently rocking to an Autumn song it only can hear... another haven for the little creepy ones spinning their lacy patterns. Natural environment and natural light.

GREEN GREEN GRASS OF HOME...

In the garden, three years ago, I scattered a packet of 'mixed ornamental grasses'. Briza maxima (Greater quaking grass) is a beautiful grass with thin stems, hung with pale green flowers that look like rain drops as they catch the light. This neat one comes back every year. Good thing it's recognisable, I probably 'weed' the others... The grass is greener in our garden, as you can see, hihi. PS: you will have noticed by now that I prefer versatility and refuse to be 'categorised' just as a 'flower-photographer'. A good one can photograph anything and everything...

AIR-BUBBLES...

#ABFAV_WATER_THEME sometimes it happens that I put the flowers in the water and that air bubbles form around the stem.
