“To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat.”
“Flowers don’t tell, they show. That’s the way good books should be too.”
“Flotsam” –Stephanie Skeem
“We should not mind so small a flower —
Except it quiet bring
Our little garden that we lost
Back to the Lawn again.”
We should not mind so small a flower – Emily Dickinson
I took a break from the flowering quince to capture this lisianthus bloom.
We featured this stem 5 days ago, before all of the buds had opened. I noticed that they were in full bloom today and made another image. Have a wonderful weekend.
The weather is grey and cold today, a foreshadowing of the winter to come. Fortunately we have flowers to raise our spirits and hopes.
Working with this lisianthus got me to wondering about the whole cut flower industry and how it developed. It’s a bit chilly here yet I can go to the local florist and purchase this flower, found in warm regions of the Southern United States, Mexico, Caribbean and northern South America, and enjoy it in my home. One more thing for me to investigate I guess.
This is the last of the three lisianthus stems we obtained at the Farmer’s Market.
This is the second of 3 lisianthus my partner purchased at the Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market. Such an elegant stem.
My partner visited the Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market Sunday and returned with peaches, tomatoes and lisianthus. Haven’t tried the fruit, I love the lisianthus.
