~May!


~May! Queen of blossoms,
And fullfilling flowers...
~Lord Edward Thurlow


~Everything is blossoming most recklessly;
If it were voices instead of colors,
There would be an unbelievable shrieking
Into the heart of night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke


~The world's favorite season is the Spring.
All things seem possible in May.
~Edwin Way Teale


~ Iris
~May and June. Soft syllables,
Gentle names for the two best months
in the gardening year; cool, misty
mornings gently burned away with a
warming spring sun , followed by breezy
afternoons and chilly nights.
~Peter Loewer

I love the combo of fleabane and fuchsia (at least that's what I think they are!). One's so formal and bright, one informal and pale, and yet they look keen together!

And... what camera do you use for close-ups? Mine is lacking in macro features! Thanks!

The colours are amazing. Purples are one of my favorites in nature and blues are not bad either.

A very nice collage of flower photos (and the little cute rabbit or hare sitting in it!). I love the poems of Rilke, he is my favourite poet.
