Oh, sooooo beautiful, Cheery! Did you get one of the garden fairies to take the second one? It's an amazing angle. I have to say that the first one is hands down one of the absolute best pictures in this thread.
Embarrassing -- I thought I'd commented on this amazing array. You all each have such a good eye. And I love how the waxy lushness of Lugg's orchid segues perfectly into the silken translucence of Kerouac's iris. Note how they both have similar & similarly colored springboards for their pollinators. Casimira's feel for foliage & patina is beautifully illustrated in that exquisite caladium(?) leaf.
Cheery, you looked into their very hearts ~~ lovely!
I almost felt a Victorian blush coming on as I gazed at the nasturtium, and kept thinking the pyrethrum would continue to unfurl. I absolutely adore the light caught in the tiny hairs in that last picture.
