Gorgeous flowers and exquisite captures, Arija, different moods and light and all in all, delightful! Thanks for sharing the beauty! Hope your weekend is going well and that you're getting some rest! My thoughts are with you!ReplyDelete
Hi Arija...Nice ...it is pretty cool how each oneReplyDelete
has a different effect on the mood!!
chrysanthemums in November? well i'll be buttered on both sides.ReplyDelete
I'd like to see that!!!Delete
er, think twice. dark glasses would be the least of your requirements, Ma.Delete
Ta, I needed the chuckle!Delete
The flowers are beautiful and the shadow looks like something from the sea.ReplyDelete
Brilliant - and I love their shaggy shadows. It reminded me of the tissue chrysanthenums we made for our mother's on Mothers' Day when I was at school (last milenium)ReplyDelete
I dont think the workers on the hotel sign were likely to stone me! Like hundreds of other migrant workers in Oman I think they were just getting on with getting on!

I love the light play on the chrysanthemums.ReplyDelete
Marvelous shots Arija, do love those shadows too. Thank you so much my friend.ReplyDelete
Lovely Arija...sending you hugs...MichelleReplyDelete
Beautiful flower and shadow shots here.ReplyDelete
Very lovely flowers.ReplyDelete
Hi there - certainly agree that the "Easter Bunny" was originally a hare - their are many symbolic referees to animals that are hare-like that morph into the Eater Rabbit.ReplyDelete
I think Peter may have been a real rabbit - given that in the story he lives in a hole, rather than a surface form. But there again Miss Potter was not really writing natural history!
Also agree about their pest status - the dark secret of my MIL's family is that a branch of it were the Austins who released rabbits around Geelong .
Cheers - Stewart M
Love the prickly shadows from the soft flowers. I really like your header photo.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I am afraid. I want you to know that every time I draw an acorn, I think of you. You are one of my oaks, a strong spirit who guides me to virtue. Even though I have not met you, I know that you and my mother and sisters are of the same make. I love dearest Arija. I know people who do not blog and have not exchanged ideas for years without meeting, will not understand that. Take care my dearest beloved friend.ReplyDelete

Hope you'd come and see when you get a chance.
I don't get too much of of white flowers in my world. They are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Prickles of the shadowy kind are the best prickles because they can't hurt you.ReplyDelete
A lovely bunch of chrysanthemums Arija captured in different moods.
Wonderful flowers, lights and shadows!ReplyDelete
There's something so lovely about a cream-colored flower, and especially a spider mum...just so sweet.ReplyDelete
so lovely Arija!ReplyDelete
The spider mums always tend to make me think of mums with bad hair days. :)ReplyDelete
I love them though!
The third shot is my favorite.
Ohh I love chrysanthemums! And chrysanthemum tea- have you ever had it? It's just the dried flower sometimes, but better mixed in with dried goji berries and a tiny bit of sugar. Yum! (good for dry eyes, heh!)ReplyDelete
These chrysanthemums are so beautiful and cast delightful, dramatic shadows!ReplyDelete
Love the shadow shot. Did you grow these? Been wondering too how all those tulips that you planted are doing?ReplyDelete
I like your shadow play -- reallyl nice.ReplyDelete
