Beautiful Flower Photography


“Beautiful Photos of Flowers…..”A committee is organic rather than mechanical in its nature: it is not a structure but a plant. It takes root and grows, it flowers, wilts, and dies, scattering the seed from which other committees will bloom in their turn.
Waterlily….

Lilies are mentioned in the Old Testament, and in the New Testament, they symbolize chastity and virtue. In both the Christian and pagan traditions, the lily is a fertility symbol. In Greek marriage ceremonies the bride wears a crown of lilies and wheat… purity and abundance. Lilies are also a symbol of death, and at one time lilies were placed on the graves of children.”

“The Yellow Rose is 200,000 acres of cattle, oil and Texas pride.. The Yellow Rose also boasts a cast as outsized and impressive as its home state.he soft silky feel of a fresh rose petal evokes tenderness; the fragrant scent of a fresh spring rose brings refreshment; the vibrant colors of red, pink, peach, purple, orange, yellow, and white roses remind us of the dazzling beauty of creation; and getting pricked by a thorn causes pain. Roses are a  reflection of life”
Flight of the Bumblebee Screenshot
Flight of the Bumblebee” is an orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899–1900. Although in the opera the Swan-Bird sings during the first part of the “Flight”, her vocal line is melodically uninvolved and easily omitted; this feature, combined with the fact that the number decisively closes the scene, made easy extraction as an orchestral concerto piece possible.”

SunFlowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”

“These flowers always turn towards the sun. They originated in Central and South America, and were grown for their usefulness, not their beauty. In 1532 Francisco Pizarro reported seeing the natives of the Inca Empire in Peru worshipping a giant sunflower. In can priestesses wore large sunflower disks made of gold on their garments.”

MY LOVE OF FLOWERS, and ‘beauty’   Orchid originates from Greece, where orchis, means testicle. Some orchids are called ladies’ fingersladies’ tresses, or long purples. Greek women thought that if the father of their unborn child ate large, new tubers, the baby would be a boy. If the mother ate small tubers, they would give birth to a baby girl.”

Tulips

“Over a thousand years ago, Tulips grew wild in Persia, and near Kabul the Great Mogul Baber counted thirty-three different species. The word tulip is thought to be a corruption of the Turkish word for turbans. Persian poets sang its praises, and their artists drew and painted it so often, that all of Europe considered the tulip to be the symbol of the Ottoman Empire.”

“Flowers whisper “Beauty!” to the world, even as they fade, wilt, fall.”
Midnight Blue

“Midnight blue Flowers start blooming early and keep going til late fall,then add a mounding/trailing habit and unique, yellow-throated blooms. The result is a new series that fills hanging baskets and containers with masses of color, and it’s wonderful as a groundcover in shady areas. Heat and shade tolerant plants have snapdragon-like flowers all season; low maintenance.”

“The calendula is a member of the marigold family, and was traditionally valued as an herb, rather than its bright yellow blossoms. The Romans used Calendula mixed with vinegar to season their meat and salad dishes. Calendula blossoms in wine were purported to soothe indigestion, and the petals were used in ointments that cured skin irritations, jaundice, sore eyes, and toothaches.”

“The French marigold (Tagetes patula) is a species in the daisy family (Asteraceae). In spite of its name, it is native to South America.The flower is an annual, growing to 0.5 m by 0.3 m. It is in flower from July to October, and the seeds ripen in September. The flowers are hermaphrodite(having both male and female organs) and are pollinated by insects. They are noted for attracting wildlife. The leaves of the marigold are coated with oily glands that produce a pungent scent.”
“Stapelia flavopurpurea flower…”
Screenshot
Stapelia are low, perennial succulents. The stems, their surface and branching make them immediately recognizable. The stems are almost always erect and are usually uniformly green to reddish, depending on the extent of exposure to the sun. Only rarely are they mottled with red or purple on green.Known globally as African starfish flowers or locally as carrion flowers, members of the genus Stapelia are usually characterized by their foul-smelling flowers reminiscent of the odour of rotting meat. The hairs, coloration and surface mimic decaying animal matter and attract mostly flies, which act as pollinators. The strong carrion scent is sometimes recognizable at a great distance, especially on hot afternoons. ”

Blossoms are either pink or white depending on the species or variety. Peach (including nectarine) blossoms, most cherry blossoms, and some almondblossoms are usually pink. Plum blossoms, apple blossoms, orange blossoms, some cherry blossoms, and most almond blossoms are white.Blossoms provide pollen to pollinators such as bees, and initiate cross-pollination necessary for the trees to reproduce by producing fruit.”
Lavender boug

“The word lavender indicates its historical use in cosmetics and toiletry because the Latin word ‘lavo’ means to wash. The ancient Greeks and Romans were heavy users of Lavender so the sweet fragrance and appeal of this plant is obviously not a recent discovery.
And as there is no secret to the name of the plant, there are no secrets to the successful culture of this perennial herb.”
