Timeless (27) Corollas, petals and blossoms in June.


Can you imagine flowers in grey nuances?...
Not as a green, whole image of blooms and  leaves...
But somehow to think of all of these 
Just framed like in blurred reveries?

Can you imagine any flowers in pale shades,
like in the vintage pictures kept
so well in boxes for so many years?
Can you imagine all of these?

When the Spring no longer is...Imagine and keep
Like in frozen shapes, these blooms; 
in so pale nuances of grey,
images, patterns and petals
Of an endless vernal time with everlasting blooms...

A Spring poem without sense.

Wikipedia about: "Schlumbergera is a small genus of cacti with six species found in the coastal mountains of south-eastern Brazil. Plants grow on trees or rocks in habitats that are generally shady with high humidity, and can be quite different in appearance from their desert-dwelling cousins. Most species of Schlumbergera have stems which resemble leaf-like pads joined one to the other and flowers which appear from areoles at the joints and tips of the stems. Two species have cylindrical stems more similar to other cacti. In Brazil, the genus is referred to as Flor de Maio (May flower), reflecting the period in which they flower in the Southern Hemisphere."Wikipedia about "Pelargonium × hortorum, (also called zonal geranium, garden geranium, malva or malvón, is a nothospecies of Pelargonium most commonly used as an ornamental plant. It is a hybrid between Pelargonium zonale and Pelargonium inquinans. Availability includes the usual nursery "seed-grown" and the "cutting grown" types, which can easily be propagated at home by cutting and planting side branches. These are stocky and large. The flowers can be single or double. The leaves are often fragrant. The flowers come in many colors, including red, shades of pink and white. Recently, orange and yellow cultivars have been developed. Many cultivars have been grown since the late eighteenth century. Cultivars with very double flowers and no anthers are called Rosebud Pelargoniums since the flower never open completely and therefore resemble a rosebud."

Hibiscus bud. "Hibiscus (/hᵻˈbɪskəs/ or /haɪˈbɪskəs/) is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known simply as hibiscus, or less widely known as rose mallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἱβίσκος (hibískos), which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40–90) gave to Althaea officinalis." read more on Wikipedia.

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

  2. Dupa ce-am privit floarea de muscata, color, chiar am avut apoi senzatia de privire incetosata cand am dat de "florile gri". :) Nu mi-ar placea florile gri, nu mi-ar placea o lume gri.
    Toate fotografiile sunt tare reusite. M-au atras cele cu cracinita, trandafirul chinezesc (japonez) si, desigur, muscata. :)
    Iti doresc sa ai un sfarsit de saptamana cat mai placut!

    1. Multumesc frumos de gandurile exprimate! nu ma asteptasem sa infloreasca chiar asa, toate impreuna, dar vremea a fost favorabila craciunitei, mai ales; trandafirul e inca la faza de imbobocire... *-*
      O saptamana asemenea, buna si plina de momente frumoase!

  4. A inflorit craciunica! Ce frumos arata ca si muscata! Transformarea de la culori la gri, este atat de ciudata. Parca ramane esenta formelor!
    Iar mozaicul arata superb.
    Un weekend excelent, draga Alexa! Si sa descoperi noi imagini frumoase!

    1. Multumesc frumos de apreciere si gandul exprimat! Schimbarea filtrului in b&w a facut ca intensa culoare rosiatica a petalelor sa dea impresia de blurare; tonurile de gri pana la estompare...
      O saptamana excelenta, asemenea cu noi descoperiri! :)

  11. Hello,Alex,
    Beautiful collaboration between the Chinese music and your beautiful flowers! The sunlight goes through the white curtain and is falling on your flowers. Lovely images, Alex.

    1. I am so glad of reading about your relevant observations, about aspects regarding connection between music and the photo instants captured or about the pale beans of light (and I must say that really don't know how to explain myself their presence, how they are reflected in the macro shots)... So glad...Perhaps you're right about the curtains who could interfere with the rays of light or something like these...quite fascinating...
      There is a rainy time in here, as well, and with some oscillation of temperatures from day to day. May as a month of Spring was so cloudy and june seems to be similar, too!
      Many thanks for the lovely thoughts expressed, Tomoko and Have a great week ahead!
