I think I’ll do all pink ones.
I’m beginning to think that wasps are the main pollinators of my tigridia – unless it is just the wind doing the job?
Did you notice? Most are pink and white, but some are pink and yellow!
I had a hard time deciding if this was red or pink… So much for the stereotype that women know all the colours. I think it’s more red, now – comparing to the other pictures. Oh well!
A bit battered.
Not quite open yet, but I had to go to work. Hence the very abused steel-toe Caterpillar Boots in frame.
My most favourite colours for sure! Absolutely stunning flowers and photos HTBS. I am glad you shared them. I would never get tired of looking at them. Thanks! 😀 ♥
I have hundreds of photos now – there must be some sort of collage project I can do with them all?
That sounds like an idea and I know what you mean. If I post half of the photos I have here, I will have to start another blog. 😆
Or, you can join in the fun and be creative with your lovely photos:
Post as many as you like. 😀
Those are the most unusual flowers. I just love them!
I do love them. So different, each one. Like the spots on frogs, or leopards, or butterflies.
I like those bits of blue blossoms in the background of some — a pretty contrast.
Not sure what that is – might just be our filthy concrete steps?
It’s so cool the way you do these close ups. Surreal flowers – almost look like Kaleidoscope images. Absolutely amazing colors and designs
I’m not very close actually – the size of the bloom is larger than a hand’s breadth. I’m usually using the iPhone so a proper close up isn’t going to happen. I do think they are all each precious, hence the hundreds of photos every year!
Ever think of selling images to companies for greeting cards/tshirts/wallpaper or fabric? Really striking stuff
Thank you! I still have more… They haven’t given up yet!
That is just gorgeous! It looks other-worldly, like it belongs on Pandora from Avatar or something…does it light up at night? Is it related to orchids?
This is Brantley from The Brantley Blog, by the way. I’m working a new blog called “The Story in the Frame” now. It’s an artistic collaboration between myself and my girlfriend (a photographer). I’m writing short stories about her photography! I just wanted to reconnect with you since you were a follower of The Brantley Blog (back when it existed)! Hope all is well with you!
Hi Brantley! Will have to check out the new digs.
They DO look like spaceships! Babylon 5 always comes to mind for me.
Sadly they are only open for a few daylight hours, so no glowing. They are native to S. America, probably more lily-like than anything else I know of.
Gorgeous colours, you had a fine crop this year by the looks of things.
These blossoms make my day very beautiful 🙂
