This flower's really purple.....This stunning orchid was such a deep color with that little white tip on her nose.......then as you might have noticed the stunning white edging on those two bottom side leaves. Really an amazing flower........loved it......wanted to share.......Wow, I was just looking and I think maybe a tiny white strip is around the larger leaves, as well.....Thanks so much ............

The trees, the flowers, the herbs; silently grow.

The stars, the sun, the moon; silently move.

Silence gives us a different view on things.

 

- Mother Theresa

Las phalaenopsis son epífitas, es decir, crecen en las ramas de los árboles o en medio de las rocas.

 

Sus raíces están hechas para agarrarse y que les llege la luz y la captación de nutrientes.

Yo la puse cuando me la regalaron en una maceta de cristal que tengo y no para de darme alegrias

Best on black! Hit the L key.

 

Created for TMI's Collage, Mosaic, or Puzzle challenge.

 

I created the abstract using brushes by Neveryph, DKSTUDIOS05, and Treehouse Charms.

I remember the thistles in our feet,

the honey bees on our stomachs—how you

always cried when you got stung

 

because it meant

an insect had died for you.

 

I remember the hay moon, burning

craters in our airborne hearts—how you

told me once that summer

 

was life’s apology.

 

I remember snow that August—

how life stabbed us both in the back.

How fall found me nine four leaf clovers,

like luck was a lady enough

 

to replace you,

you and your moonbeam eyes. You

 

and the rose hips on your cheeks,

the orchids in your hair.

 

I remember the flowers

on your grave—how I

pushed the daisies back down.-Railrose(via Tumbler)

 

Orchid. What are those fangs called? Anthers, antlers? LOL! Sorry : )

Update! Name of this orchid is "Moon Orchid" or Phalaenopsis amabilis. That's why I like it! : )

Fangs are "tendrils" (much nicer!)

Thanks Wikipedia, clayzeye,& Kia&Zeno!

Have a mellow weekend, dear friends :-) xo

 

Better on black.

 

Many thanks to Brenda Starr and Clifford Sax for their fabulous textures.

Into each daffodill

a sun is burning bright.

The tempid orchid scents the air

of the coming night.

 

Lilacs lay down their plumes,

a pillow for your head.

Habisciss is a willling one,

a blanket for your bed.

 

A star twinks a lily blooms

hydrangia rounds the moon.

Petunias pale until dawn

Snapdragon's fire looms...

 

Daisies close their petaled eyes

until the waking hours,

All is quiet, all is sound

amid my garden flowers.

I know you're out there somewhere

'Cause I've held you in my dreams

and I'm waitin' for the day it all comes true

 

So close and yet so far away

You'll be more than just a dream some day

I'll hold you in my arms but 'till I do.

I'll get by

 

I'll wait until the rivers run dry

if it takes a million years girl......I

will know a million years can't come too soon

 

Somehow... somewhere.... our eyes will meet and then and there

the sparks will set a magic night on fire

 

And I'll lasso you the moon.

 

I’ll know there'll be a lot of little girl..... left in the lady

While the woman in her...... will love me all night long

 

I know one day she'll come to me

some things are just meant to be

there’ll be a place in time where we belong.

I'll get by

 

I'll wait until the rivers run dry

if it takes a million years girl.....I

will know a million years can't come too soon

 

Somehow.... somewhere..... our eyes will meet and then and there

the sparks will set a magic night on fire

 

And I'll lasso you the moon...

The moon-cradle's rocking and rocking

Where a cloud and a cloud go by

Silently rocking and rocking

The moon-cradle out in the sky.

While flowers dance by the light of the moon,

Who would stop and stare?

Who would dare to stare?

While flowers dance by the light of the moon.

 

~~ S. Zielke ~~

 

I recently attended my first orchid show. The place was so full of eye candy, it was hard to know where to look first.

 

This pair of orchids caught my eye. Only later did I realize that I had caught this floral ballet.

 

I nearly tossed this image out, but I kept coming back to it. Its siren call finally proved too much to resist, so I decided to do some post-processing.

 

After much tweaking of contrast and midtones (no color alterations), I came up with this "Orchid Ballet by Moonlight."

 

This is dedicated to all those "faerie folk" among us who would dare to stare while flowers dance by the light of the moon.

 

Blessings!

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in

my heart)i am never without it(anywhere

i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing,my darling)

i fear

no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want

no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

 

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

 

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

 

E. E. Cummings

...over barrigada heights. This was a total surprise. I was shooting toward the beachside atop Royal Orchid. I turn around to see how the airport looks and BAM! There it was.

The love of field and coppice,

Of green and shaded lanes.

Of ordered woods and gardens

Is running in your veins,

Strong love of grey-blue distance

Brown streams and soft dim skies

I know but cannot share it,

My love is otherwise.

 

I love a sunburnt country,

A land of sweeping plains,

Of ragged mountain ranges,

Of droughts and flooding rains.

I love her far horizons,

I love her jewel-sea,

Her beauty and her terror -

The wide brown land for me!

 

A stark white ring-barked forest

All tragic to the moon,

The sapphire-misted mountains,

The hot gold hush of noon.

Green tangle of the brushes,

Where lithe lianas coil,

And orchids deck the tree-tops

And ferns the warm dark soil.

 

Core of my heart, my country!

Her pitiless blue sky,

When sick at heart, around us,

We see the cattle die-

But then the grey clouds gather,

And we can bless again

The drumming of an army,

The steady, soaking rain.

 

Core of my heart, my country!

Land of the Rainbow Gold,

For flood and fire and famine,

She pays us back threefold-

Over the thirsty paddocks,

Watch, after many days,

The filmy veil of greenness

That thickens as we gaze.

 

An opal-hearted country,

A wilful, lavish land-

All you who have not loved her,

You will not understand-

Though earth holds many splendours,

Wherever I may die,

I know to what brown country

My homing thoughts will fly. - Dorothea Mackellar (1885 - 1968)

3123- outside my front door

Oh, hi! It's been a while and I miss flickr and my flickr friends! My flickr account recently expired so I had to pay for another year. Has it really been a year? Really?

 

The story behind this orchid and the quote? Well, I have been wanting to have a moon orchid but not sure if I can take care of it. Then one day in Dec., my husband brought home a pot of moon orchid as a Christmas gift. What a lovely thought, except that I only saw two loooong stems sticking out of the pot. He thought that the flowers were about to bloom while actually the flowers had finished blooming. LOL. Oh well, I thought. My mom said, "It's the thought that counts." All right then.

 

When I came home from work on Val's day, I saw this beauty sitting on the dining table. Turned out my husband secretly bought another pot, this time with the flowers. :P Catching up with your streams tomorrow.
