I have several flower photos that have what I call “usual” visitors – those insects that make flowers their frequent stops. Here are some of the photos! I presented them as a slideshow this time, which is unusual for me…
Last year I posted a photo of my friend Sandy’s hibiscus. This spring she had some monster pink roses. (I’m certain it is because she is such a wonderful lady that they are the size of salad plates!) And some pretty yellow ones, too. So I wanted to share some of the photos and wish that I could share the sweet smell! Yumm!
This week I am glad to share some of the photos I took over the weekend. It was wonderful to be at home and see all the blooms since the weekend before. So here are a few blooms for Wednesday!
When I first read the word “arranged” for this week’s post I was reminded of one of my favorite prints of Ansel Adams “Rose & Driftwood”. I have read that it is the only contrived photo that he offered. The rose is rumored to have come from his mother’s rose bush. I have it in my collection. So when my own rosebush bloomed last year I decided that I would take that inspriration and use the piece of driftwood that was beaver made to do my own version. Now do not get me wrong – I am nowhere near the artist that Mr. Adams was but I enjoyed the take on it as I found the beaver made driftwood at a river and the rose was one from my own rose bush.
The second photo I want to share with you is the cover photo for my “Flowers For Your Coffee Table” book. I arranged several spring flowers on the bench in my arbor for this photo.
Mundane = ordinary or commonplace
