The Graceful Lives of Flowers in Close Up (by Nathan)
The vibrancy of the natural world is most evident in the colors created by the sun. The sky is painted during sunrises and sunsets, but some of the most magnificent natural beauty is in the flowers scattered throughout the world.
Our pilgrimage across the country of Spain continues. Here are some photos of my favorite blooming flowers found during my travels:
In Macau a bee stopped for a suckle in front of the Ruins of St. Paul.
An enormous tiger lily hung across the philosopher’s path in Kyoto.
What is it about orchids that make them so alluring? The bright colors, contoured petals and symmetry are so fascinating. Visit somewhere tropical and there will be orchids in great varieties.
In volume flowers can transition a landscape and make an area colorful and teeming with life.
Flowers surround our daily activities and highlight our special events.
Some of the best flowers can be consumed. I stuffed these farmer’s market squash blossoms with ricotta then beer-battered and fried them. Delicious!
