back to blooms

May 11, 2020  •  8 Comments

You have noticed by now that my blogs for the last couple of months have featured subjects I find around our place.  Like many of you, we are mostly staying at home, but there is still ample material to photograph.  Following the spring cycle of life, this week I photographed both the blue flax that just began to bloom, and the daffodils on the north side of the house, which are definitely two weeks later that those on the south side.  They are such beauties that I get a little carried away with the camera.  Included here are some of the results. The cups have what I would call crinolations that could be the envy of any milliner. 



Some of the cups are more loosely organized than others, such as this one, with different parts curling inward.


And as is the case with human hair color, the colors within the groups of daffodil cups can be slightly different.

Thanks to Connie, Barbara, Christina, Fernando, Kay, TTT, David O., Wayne, Steve, Donna, Jean and Sam, Marilyn, Lisa, Sara, and Pauli for getting in touch this week and commenting.    It is always great to hear from you!

until next Monday,

Those Daffodils are pure eye candy, Daryl. Great job capturing the different aspects and light.

There's much to be said about observing the things closest to you. There's a school of thought that says it's the best way to find fodder for our art. You've chosen to depict living things on the mesa especially flowers. I enjoy the storytelling part of your posts. You words, I'd argue, are as special as your images. Today you dusted off some verbal gems, crenulations and milliner are examples. Haven't seen that word since the third floor of the City of Paris in 1951. September to be precise. You have some vocabulary, chica.

So delicate and lovely.

And great color.
Beautiful, beautiful....worthy of a few cards!
