One more thing, whoever came up with this new Blogger post editor needs to have their head examined.  It's terrible and will take twice the time it would normally take to format the posts.

Beautiful. The first looks so velvety soft and the second so feathery soft. I just want to reach out and touch them :)

Very pretty flowers. my fav is #2.

The second one reminds me of curls of ribbon...and I've always loved irises - matched with yellow roses ( if anyone ever asks what kind of flowers to send me, tell them that, please, Jo! ). It's funny, I've come to recognize that Matilija Poppy.

LD said...

wow really enjoyed that floral journey - Orange hues are almost edible and the iris is my favorite flower so of course loved that..

Kala, thanks, the veld fire is so exciting to see in person.

Squirrel, yeah it is unique.

Nancy, The Japanese iris is gorgeous. Thanks.

Carmen, I know you love those yellow Roses. At Divine on the 12 and 13th you should steal a couple from Jim when he brings them for Sony :)

LD, Irises are quickly becoming a favorite of mine. They are just so lush and beautiful. Thanks.

Catherine, You get amazing shots. I am always in awe of your photos.
