Twilight Petals and Mist

  1. Now this sounds like you know of just the proper way for a lady to spend the holidays ~ “lying sleepily beneath a gentle mist with a bottle of wine, a free lens … and twilight, resting on petals.” Poetic, and great shots. Hope the holidays were great for you and your family.


    • Funny how flowers can irresistibly draw you into themselves, isn’t it? Silky, perfumed petals– soft textures, bright colors and a delicately strong beauty.. and these, above all, my favorites.


      • Back in China, on my way to the office there are two flower stalls I must pass…and one of the best parts of the day is to slow down and enjoy the fragrance… In Taiwan once, I met some people admiring a beautiful flower called The Queen of the Night (also know as the Nightblooming Cereus), it blooms once a year at night…and begins it death by the dawn. Fragrant and with a story like that it has become my favorite flower. Just realized a new goal for 2016 ~ photograph one blooming if I can get the chance to do so πŸ™‚


      • Yes! I know this flower — or at least heard of it~ “begins its death by dawn…” I believe, if I am remembering correctly, this flower possesses an extraordinary cascading kind of beauty … now I have to go look it up πŸ™‚
