Out on the prairie, Yes, there are always variations and on the gardenia however in person, I was just stunned by it's perfection. Thank you :)

Lovely flowers. Color isn't always necessary to make a flower beautiful as you've proven here.

What can I say? I have never sen such gorgeous shots of white pristine flowers that exude purity and daintiness. Such a wonderful display of cascading colors of nature surely captivates our hearts and soul. Thanks for the fantastic post. God bless you always.

Beautiful, white macro shots Jo. I am especially fond of the Japanese iris, the last iris to bloom in my garden and worth the wait.

When I see white flowers, I think of them as more delicate than the rest for some reason. These show exactly that to me.
