O my, simply stunning beauty and photography! Gorgeous 😊
Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated Liza დ
Grazie mille Timothy დ
These are exquisite! So much beauty you bring to us. Thank you!
Visa versa 2UX2! დ
Beautiful. That is a real uplift!
So happy it is & thank you! დ
Gorgeous blooms 🌼
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Alethea დ
I like the wrinkly, white one. It’s charming.
It is one of my favorite flowers. It’s a Matjila poppy that I grow at The Holler. They are native here დ
I thought it looked like a poppy but wasn’t sure at all.
Each of your magnificent photos do not need words to describe the beauty they enclose. Excellent week to you Cindy.
Thank you my friend. Stay safe & well დ
You are welcome
Your photographs are simply beautiful and do justice to these lovely flowers, Cindy.
Your thoughtfulness is so appreciated Anne. Thank you & be well დ
Beauty shots Cindy! I love the smell from them!
I can smell them too!! Thank you Wayne დ
Back 2UX2 დ
Such beautiful, beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing them. 🌺
Thank you more Lynette for your very kind appreciation & cheers to you დ
Are these blooming now? Or are they archived photos? Either way, beautiful.
They are all archived except for The African Iris. Happy you enjoyed & thank you დ
Very hope inspiring at this time of year!
I’m glad დდ
Oh so beautiful, each one in it’s own way.
Thank you Dor. There is always beauty, waiting to be found by us დ
Flowers always can brighten our day and our world when we see so much that can bring us down and need to be reminded of the beauty God gives us. Beautiful images and I especially love the one of the bee on the bloom.
Love to you Joyce and thank you დ
These are gorgeous Cindy, ready to sing from their hearts. You don’t want a little shower or two for them do you? Up north has gone crazy and delivered a record of 995mm in 7 days (they had 350mm in 24hrs at one point). I’m trying to get my head around a meter of rain, it’s a wall of water, you could surf it 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
Wow!! I am seriously jealous. We just got an inch, but lots of snow in the nearby mountains and big icicles! We could definitely use some of your water დ
I didn’t know any of the common names for the crinkly white poppy but I’ve just found another from the San Diego Zoo website, ‘Queen of California’, and I love that!
I have never heard the matilija called that but it is entirely fitting. Thanks for telling me. They are stunning flowers, and very large. Some people call them the fried egg flower which is also fitting. They are native to SoCal and grow near creek beds დ
Simply stunning! 😍 Flowers are not only gorgeous but your wonderful macro photography helps me admire their biology, too!
They are fascinatingly designed aren’t they. So happy you enjoyed Teresa & be well my friend დ
Just spectacular, Cindy! 😍
Grazie mille დ
A beautiful collection, Cindy. Has me excited for spring flowers. We should have some nice wildflowers this season with the rains we’ve had.
We should. They are already starting to bloom here at The Holler. Thank you Michele & take good care დ
Thank you, Cindy. Best to you!
Just wow! So lovely.
Much appreciated Ali. Thank you & cheers დ
