Iris Kaleidoscope



Our days are a kaleidoscope. Every instant a change takes place....new harmonies...new contrasts....new combinations of every sort. The most familiar people stand each moment in some new relation to each other, the their work, to surrounding objects.

oh, how very beautiful! irises used to be my favorite flower. i still love them. i call them delicate troopers. they are so intricate and delicate, but still so sturdy and substantial... especially the bearded irises.

i recently took some macros of the inside of a tulip... very similar to this. i love when i look closely at a flower. there is so much more than initially meets the eye, no? reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by georgia o'keefe. something like "Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time"

anyway, thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind words. lots of beautiful photos here! i too, will look forward to visiting again and again. i shall add your blog to my blog roll as a reminder to visit.

blessings,
