    Gorgeous shots! Love the intense red of the lily and the delicacy of the white flowers just after – is it Gypsophila?

    Great quote to go along with these beautiful photos Arnel 🙂

  8. As ever, I am blown away by the photographic talents (and skill… mustn’t forget what it takes to USE the talent) shown in these images.
    Would that I were as good…

    • Your words are very much appreciated! I was actually told recently I should join a couple of co-op art galleries here, so I just may do that. Thanks for encouraging me with your thoughts! I’m very excited to have found something I love that brings joy to others, especially when it is a second possible career…

    Hi there! Geodesic dandelion, delineated Linum, umbelliferous Lace, pollencrusted stamen… Absolutely loving your fantastic photos: )
    … And wondering if your “tiny daisies” – such a very delicate pink they’re almost white and petals so fine they look like eyelashes – might actually be Fleabane?

    • Oh thank you so much!!!! It’s nice to have someone who knows what they are!! I looked up Fleabane and indeed I think they are! I’ve seen them in obvious and not quite obvious shades of pink, and white.i guess I’d have to check the leaf attachment to be sure but I think that’s it! You made my day!

    Hi Arnel, PFAF (a VERY interesting database: ) has four different listings for Fleabane. Is this like yours? Ahttp://www.pfaf.org/user/Plant.aspx?LatinName=Erigeron+philadelphicus
