Lady in Red… As this variety is called, is stunning as it takes its time unfolding to its full, brilliant, color. It starts with light greenish-pink petals standing upright. Then as it matures through the summer, each stem, ever so gently, bends forward. With this transformation, it surprises us with another view of its burgundy rose petals. I find this transformation a gentle reminder that b...

Cortona, Italy… We traveled there late in October. To my dismay, but not a total surprise, all of the fields had been cleared of the much loved sunflowers of Tuscany. Fortunately though, at our hotel, Villa di Piazzano, a garden was still producing fresh vegetables for the chef’s meals. It also provided me with a violet bloom that is probably, more often than not, overlooked.

If it wasn’t for this misshapen cactus… Along the side of the road, I would have had to stand on a very tall ladder and hope its long needles didn’t stab me. Though prickly, this cactus is statuesqueand a delight of the Arizona dweller as well as for the bats, birds and bees. In the springtime, its blooms and fruit make a wonderful addition to the desert, too. Come take a look.

A sweet & simple handheld bouquet of flowers... Though it’s one bloom and only the size of a nickel. Each petal is curled tight like a fist, waiting to unfurl and explode into its most unusual streamer-like bloom. I feel I can almost hear that explosive pop as it expands into its fun, joyful metamorphosis. So, here is a sweet and simple bouquet for you to enjoy and ponder its transformation...

A childhood recollection… As my eyes look at the long, narrow, white petals. Thoughts come flooding back to me of hoping the last one I picked would tell me “he” loves me… a delightful memory of the past of counting petals for the sake of love. Flowers create connections to so many things in our lives.

It sounds so delicious… I want to eat it up, and actually I could as it’s edible. This flower is found in many vivid colors. I picked this one for its unique flower color: deep purple-black velvety petals, though, what struck me was the bright yellow light radiating from its center… a reminder that there is a ray of sunshine in everyone.

What I see… Dreamy and romantic. Soft and luxurious. Petal after petal. A little elusive. Almost ambiguous. But altogether lovely and calming. Find this flower photograph and others available for purchase in our floral print store.

Yellow petals slowly unfold… From the center of its waxy, lime-green exterior, and every petal looks as if it was hand dipped to create its rose-pink edges. I follow the edges to see how each one breaks at the top into a ‘V’ making me think of the peace or victory sign. These details envelop me and draw me in closer to take in all of its beauty, and then I notice its gentle strength. Find ...

I have a certain pride… When sharing flowers that I’ve nurtured in my own garden or grown from seeds; a pride that I’m sure isn’t warranted, but one I’m feeling about today’s flower. This flower’s light blue petals are stunning. Its unexpected center is brown with fuzzy yellow stamen. How joyful it is to grow flowers and to share them with you. Find this floral photograph and other...
