STOPS ALONG THE WAY

WILD CHILD OR CITY BRED (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

14 Comments

IrisThe first photo was taken at our favourite reserve. We see a few irises along the water’s edge every June. The second photo was taken in a neighbourhood garden. The cultivated irises are beautiful but I prefer the more subtle colour of the wild flower. And though it looks delicate, it really can’t be as it thrives in this natural setting.

  4. The colour and light is so vibrant, Belinda! Beautifully done! When I was a boy my parents had a huge elm tree growing in the front garden, and surrounding the trunk grew these beautiful purple flags.

  5. Those same Iris thrive along the banks of swamps in the Lowcountry. Beautiful flowers.

  6. Love the luminous light in the first and the bright light in the second that reminds me of the height of June. We’re getting there!

  7. Lovely. I prefer wildflowers to the cultivated ones even if they are, as you say, more subtle.
