“Have you ever seen a flower down
Sometimes angels skip around
And in their blissful state of glee
Bump into a daisy or sweet pea.” –Terri Guillemets

“A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.” –Terri Guillemets

Stunning, Diane. I especially love 3rd and 4th to last.

Diane, your flowers are beautiful! I especially love the lilies. Much to my surprise, we have some lovely lilies in the backyard of our rental house. I’ve never seen burgundy & orange tiger lilies and bright yellow & red lilies before! I’ve also never seen lilies like yours – so pretty 🙂

Lovely flower portraits. I have seen that particular salmon colored Oriental Lily in person and it is a gorgeous flower.

I recognise Lily and Hollyhock, but am mystified by the other images. They all look lovely though.
