Memories of Mothers Day


A gift from DD, these monstrously large chrysanthemums
deep, deep red and smelling like chrysanthemums of old


look into their hearts and you get sharp crab claws
and delicate trumpets for angels to blow


I do so enjoy the scent and look of Oriental lilies
click on each or any for more detail.

  2. The mum is such a beautiful color -- and a gold-medal winner for size and perfection too; wonderful macros on both flowers and I love your description (you certainly did what Laura asks us to do with the macros... paused and really really looked. (And I did that too when I looked at your picture.)

  16. Oh what beautiful dish size flowers, and I love that deep magenta colouration. I have been off blogging for over a month and taking care of me and I am still about the same but plugging forward as best I can. I have missed everyone, especially my very favorite Australia friends. Take care~

  19. Great flowers - we normally go to the Grampians in the spring - but this year I think it was still rather wintery. But thats why we own hats!! I love the place.
