Some of these are in our yard, some in Maine. Oh the variety, the color, the shapes, and the close-up glory! It has been a wet month, but the flowers are thriving in it! Peonies, iris, lilies, roses, rhododendrons, clematis, mountain laurel, kalalilies, pansies, allium, lemon blossoms, delphinium, lupine, sunflowers, mock orange, snapdragons, poppies… I love it all!
These are beautiful in their own right, and are great reference fodder for abstract work, let alone beautiful tokens of the infinite Creator’s expressed joy.
