Delicate Amongst Needles

Delicate Amongst Needles

Somehow, this beautiful, white flower has found a way to live, grow and bloom amongst the needles of the pine trees. It is delicate and fragile and the pine needles are sharp, prickly and dangerous to its continuing existence. It is like a very nice person who is positive and upbeat amongst negative and vile people affecting the essence of the individual. 

This photograph was taken in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta.

Flowers in Rock

Way up in the Rocky Mountains, there are hardy and beautiful yellow flowers growing out of rock. They are determined and strong to grow out of the sides of mountains. 

I have to give them credit for being so tenacious and having a “Never Give Up” Attitude. You have to be in the mountains at the right time of year for them to be blooming.

Beauty of My Eye

Beauty of My Eye

When I see peonies, I think of my mother. There is an old coloured photograph of my mother in a pink, silky organza layered type of dress. She looks absolutely stunning and so beautiful. Along with her, were her children, us kids, playing beside her and she is kneeling near the fence where there are beautiful, pink peonies framing her body. 

I love this image that I took in my own garden because it highlights the pink peony and is surrounded by bright, yellow flowers and green leaves which to me, is like my mother along with her children. She is the “Beauty of My Eye.” 

Now that I think of it, I wonder if my father created that stunning dress for my mother as he was a custom tailor and made beautifully tailored clothes for all of us. Good memories. 

This is for you Mom and Dad!

Bee Flower

Bee Flower

I look this image of the bee in the flowers in Freeport, Bahamas. What I like about this photograph that I took is the fact that the flower is in various stages of development just like people from baby to youngling to adult. I find the spiky nature particularly appearing which I guess would be like the teenage years.

Water Lilies in Colour

I took the photograph of the water lilies in Freeport, Bahamas. I then decided to give it some colour and give it some darker features using filters and effects. The result is like a painting which I hope you like as much as I do.

I really like the photograph and added a stained glass effect to it. It is not an ordinary flower but a special one found at Hotel Beatus in Cambrai, France where I found it outside the rooms in the adjoining patios. Philippe Gorczynski found and made a museum around a World War I British tank, Deborah, the Iron Lady, near Flesquieres.

White and Pink

White and Pink

These are beautiful flowers found in the Japanese Gardens in Kelowna, British Columbia. According to the City of Kelowna website, “The garden was completed in 1987 to demonstrate the friendship and union between Kelowna and its sister city in Kasugai, Japan. The park integrates traditional elements notable in Japanese gardens, such as stone lanterns, pine trees, waterfalls and a pond stocked with Koi. It is a beautiful integration of stone, pathways, plants and water.”

Beginning and End

Mikawoz Beginning and End

Beginning and End

I took this photograph of this beautiful flower both at its bud stage up top and in full bloom below. It is like living on this Earth, end of life is happening for some while birth and new life is happening for some. Others in various stages of the in-between life. I like the contrast in stages. There is spiritual meaning in this photograph.

Wild Rose of Alberta

Wild Rose of Alberta

Here is a beautiful, pink rose bush that represents the symbol of Alberta. I took the photograph in Elk Island National Park near Edmonton.

According to the Indigenous Teaching and Learning Gardens website, the Indigenous used the wild rose as follows: “Used medicinally to treat bee stings, colds, blindness and diarrhea. The rose has also been used in ceremonial medicine. Rosehip rinds were eaten.”
