Nature’s floral arrangements

While following an elusive trail of a new flower today I came upon two of Mother Nature’s settings I just couldn’t pass up. I didn’t need any more Shooting Star pictures, but…

Shooting star

and my quota on Buttercup photos is all filled up, however…


Sure wish I could do arrangements that well!


  1. OMG these are beautiful! You have an eye for arrangements…It’s almost the same.

    • Settings like these just seem to have spotlights on them.

  2. Stunning! I especially like the Buttercup photo, but both are amazingly beautiful!

    • Yes, there are some amazingly beautiful things in this world, aren’t there!

  5. You are right,… Mother Nature is the “hostess with the mostest” when it comes to flower arranging. Nice shots!

    • Now that lots of plants have begun their growth cycle, the arrangements are starting to show up. Changes the perspectives a little!

    • These are at a little higher elevation where Buttercups are still blooming: I was a little surprised to see them.

  7. One can never have too many beautiful photos or books..

    • I guess I must believe that too because I have lots of both!

  8. These are very beautiful. I love the colors.

    • This is a great time of year for color outdoors, isn’t it! New growth with its bright foliage and not washed out yet by the sun or dried out.

  9. I’m laughing out loud here because I can totally relate!! I’ve been inclined to attempt to create that perfection in a vase only to become extreamly frustrated. Guess, I’ll leave that to Marth Stewart! I love the second shot – I wonder about the foliage it almost looks carrot like. Beautiful shadows in that as well!

    • Off the top of my head I can’t come up with the name of those leaves that look like carrot tops.

  10. Very nice composition and I love the color. I really like the Shooting Stars and even saw some for sale at the Bowman’s Hill sale last weekend. But I have not been able to find any in the wild.

    • Interesting that they sell Shooting stars. I’ve never know anyone who had any success at transplanting them here although I don’t know why that is.
