Such Elegance in Natures Beauty

6개월 전

It is not often that we take the time to indulge in the simple pleasures in life, however if we just stop for a moment to appreciate our surroundings we would ever so often find little gems that would not only captivate the mind - but also the imagination...

Today I started on a new landscape and while out selecting flowers that we would be placing into the new un-established garden I walked passed some amazing wild sage that was growing outside the boundaries of the nursery plants.


While looking closer at its flowers I couldn't help but notice how much this looked like a tiny little sugar bird hovering with a droplet of freshly harvested nectar in her mouth.


In the picture above you can see the same flower from a slightly more zoomed out view. It truly is lovely to watch the droplets from the early morning summer rain cling to the petals of the flowers.

As I walked along the same path, I also came across some lovely wild vygies (Lampranthus) slowly creeping up the hillside banks, at first sight the tiny flowers did not look like much, but once I decided to kneel down and have a closer look, I realized just how intricately beautiful the actually were.


The tiny striped purple and white petals almost looked symmetrically hand painted, and stood out in such proud contrast to the matte green leaves that created the carpeted ground cover that hosted it.


And then just as I was about to get up, I noticed this tiny little flower, I think what fascinated me the most was the perfection of its detail despite its size. I still need to figure out what flower this is, but I will be sure to go look it up as soon as I have a moment to spare.


In the mean time back at the nursery...

My Inka Lillys has finally started to bloom - aren't the absolutely gorgeous?


"As a symbol of devotion, Peruvian lilies can say to a companion or loved one that you will always be there for them and that you trust in your lasting bond. The depth of meanings for Peruvian lilies is a compliment to their beauty, and the message that these flowers send is profound in its authentic simplicity. The brilliantly colored blooms of Peruvian lilies can light up a room as well as the hearts of their recipients. Whether displayed on their own or used to accent a mixed bouquet, these dazzling flowers will always attract attention because of their unique appeal and the meaningful messages that they can carry. From their origins in the mountains of Peru, the Peruvian lilies have found a special place within the language of flowers."
