Beauty is nature


I never thought i could take pictures like this...


I just took them....I love flowers in my house. They bring life and beauty inside.



I love having a camera that takes this quality of pictures...



Beauty is all around us and we sometimes take it for granted.....I am still amazed and in love, lately i love them more than before...it's La joie de vivre (love of living)....
N is for Nature in my house...


My favorite flower was growing in my last garden and i miss the color, beauty, smell, giving it to my friends and seeing their eyes smile as i gave them :)




It is The Abraham Darby rose. It is a Cabbage rose.

Picture from David Austin website HERE. You can buy this rose HERE.


What is your favorite flower?

I think more than your beautiful pictures of flowers I like the line "and seeing their eyes smile", eyes smiling make one happy.

Ping said...

Hi Frenchy! Love your flowers. I did the same thing this morning, just taking flowers from my own garden. I love being out there even though it's small but as you say, there's beauty in nature.

Lovely mosaic, all the flower photos are great. I love roses as well.

siromade08 said...

Lovely, are they all your own flowers in the garden? You must be living in a fresh smell and beautiful surroundings of flower. I love it.

Mélanie said...

Wonderful flowers and your pictures are fantastic

Rustown Mom said...

Beautiful, Frenchy! My favorite flowers are the Texas wildflowers that are going crazy all over town right now - I need to get out there and take some pretty floral photos, too! Love the color of that rose...

High Heeled Life said...

what lovely pictures. I too like fresh cut flowers in throughout my home. I'm trying to create a flower cutting garden - so that in the gardening season I can have my own. My fav flower is the Orchid, but I have to have to grow them in pots - the weather in Canada is too cold to plant in the ground.

Naturegirl said...

I agree filling the house with flowers is a joy...
"La joie de vivre!" Your rose is delightfull!

Marnie said...

I've stopped to smell the roses :0) Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures.

Bridget said...

your beautiful photos made me smile. I love lilacs alas I can't grown them down here on the Carolina Coast. I had them when I lived in NY. I also love daylilies & roses & daliahs.

Kara@ Creations by Kara said...

These are stunning! I can't wait for the flowers to start blooming around here, I am tired of snow! :)

Le Chateau des fleurs said...

High heeled ans siromade...They are all in pots. They last longer and i can plant them outside in pots or in the ground when they don't like it inside anymore :)
Self sagacity, i use photoshop but you can do it with flickr for free?.
Kara, we have snow here too only the valley is starting to have flowers.
Thank you for sharing your favorite flowers :)

Pink Flower said...

Utterly gorgeous - tulips are my favourite flowers yet they seems rather ignored compared to the other flowers that people rave about. Gorgeous lush colours!

Ivy Jane Adison said...

I have been gone for awhile and have missed seeing your beautiful pictures and reading your latest ideas and creations. You have such great style, as well as being so beautiful. I bought a flower pot today and can't wait to decorate it like you have shown. Thanks for the information.

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I love the beauty and colors of flowers too. My favorite flower is the tulip, but I sure love the roses my husband gives me too :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments on my blog.
Blessings,

Ann said...

I love flowers, no one favourite. The white orchid in your photo is a native of North Borneo. Was my dad's favourite, so it holds a special place in my heart.

Do you use your husband's GPS to drive? I don't have a GPS, but would sure like one when I go to new places cause I am a lousy driver. Am comfortable when I drive to work. But e;se where, oh dear I am lost !!!! LOL

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hi Frenchy,

I love taking fabulous photos too...I just recently bought a Nikon D90 and it is so easy to use. I've got tons to learn about it but it's taking beautiful pictures of my stuff as I learn more. ♥

My favorite flower is the PiNk english cabbage rose first and foremost (David Austin roses are divine!)...second flower(s) I love the most would be Gerbera Daisies and Lavender. ♥

My husband brings me bouquets of roses and I love to dry the heads or pull apart and dry the petals...then I photograph and make digital stuff with them.

I'm visiting today for Three or More Tuesday...I'd love for you to come by for a visit when you have a moment.

Have a lovely day...

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Beautiful blog..

My favorite flowers are daffodils...

Jo said...

Beautiful pictures ... i just love having flowers in the home as well ... brings in such natural beauty ... i love the big cabbage rose!

Viki said...

I love daisy's but I love the looks of that cabbage rose. It's beautiful.

jeff campbell said...

Wonderful post..and such exquisite photos...I would love for you to visit my post...you might find a flower...or two:-)

mrs. c said...

I have several favorite flowers but right now it's a peony. I have a peony bush in my yard and I cannot wait until it blooms. I think my next favorite are daisies. They are so happy, but then I love roses as well! Too many flowers to chose from!

Julie Schuler said...

I think I like ranunculus. I'm not sure that I spelled it right.

Amanda said...

I love a good old-fashioned rose. I had some at my last house that smelled heavenly. They were beautiful, thorny, and only bloomed once, but it was worth it for their perfume!

Christy said...

okay wait..i have a really good camera and i can't get it to take pics like these...i really think it is more about the person taking the pics than the camera itself :)
great photos...how nice to have such beautiful flowers around the house!

Christy said...

I agree with the other Christy- a good camera does not make a good picture a certainty! Your flowers are lovely. I love love love lilacs. I know that is a bush but nothing says spring to me more than a lovey lilac bush in bloom.

Sadgeatplay said...
