1)Even though it’s a blurry drive by, this could be the beginning of a movie, capturing blooming meadows

2) Elated with some inheritance in our yard of previous owners. Since the irises bloomed during a hot spell, these Purple /Burnt Orange ones bloomed only for a few days.

3)  What is new in my life, is the “whenever get to it-kind-of-schedule!
The lion chair proudly standing in the Huntington Library Gardens. Pasadena, CA.
This is my new face or self portrait – resting (as in sitting to rest), but still on the alert (as lions)
really worth the visit  when coming to the Los Angeles area.

    Love the lion chair, Jesh. 🙂 I was at a lavender farm last week and it was incredibly beautiful.

  4. Debbie Smyth says:

    Ha! now that is clever interpretation of the upright theme!
    I like your floral blur – very artistic 🙂

  5. jesh stg says:

    Wish I did more walks, Jo, because I forget to keep in contact with you! I appreciate your comments!

    How lovely! I like the blurry field of irises.

  8. fun60 says:

    That iris is a beautiful and unusual colour.

  9. …that chair is for looking at, not for sitting in, built with beauty in mind, not comfort. Thanks for sharing this week, what’s next?

  10. riitta k says:

    That iris is to die for ❤ And the meadow too! Have a lovely day.

  11. The color of that Iris is wonderful. I do like the chair to by the way!

    Have a ♥-warming AbC-day / -week

    Nice series of shots!

  13. jMo says:

    Wonderful inheritance indeed and I’d be all over that lion chair photographing away. Love the first shot, you get movement and a kind of water color effect.

  14. Wow! What an interesting chair! Didn’t know it was Iris season. I always thought they came in May! Lovely!

  15. Never have I seen a lion chair. What an amazing find. Enjoyed your blog!

  16. Norm 2.0 says:

    Nice collection. You just want to be extra careful when sitting down in that garden chair so as not to get bit 😉

  17. Roger Green says:

    Some EXTRAORDINARY shots.


  18. I love the blurry image of the meadow and that Iris……… such depth of colour – gorgeous.

  19. jesh stg says:

    You probably know by the green that these pics were taken in the Spring. Holland is green all year, but not California:)

  20. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Debbie. When I don’t have the right image, or can’t find one, that’s the best way to go – to interpret it:) The blurred flower you saw in that post, was a multicolored rose, and may have been hubby’s rendition.

  21. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Fiona ! I always swallow a few times before posting a blurred image that I didn’t intent to be blurred (the old-fashioned notion I guess that photos need to be sharp).

  22. jesh stg says:

    Thank you much:)

  23. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Erica! Am glad you started visitim my blog -yours is very interesting to see and read:)

  24. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Norm! Yeah, that wouldn’t be so good. Somehow I always picture the peaceful side of lions (the lion and the lamb version).

  25. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Jean – once in a while I have the effect I like (you don’t see how many on my camera I delete, lol).

  26. 🙂 I miss the green, but the golden hills have their charms, and beauty too.

  27. Is one allowed to sit on the lion chair? Growwwwwwwwl.

  28. Betty says:

    I remember the Iris growing in our yard when I was growing up in NJ. I guess they don’t grow well here since I don’t recall seeing any.

  29. I love seeing the Iris. They grow here in the Spring only. This is a great collection of photos! Thanks for linking up and have a great weekend!

  30. Peter B says:

    I like the flower blur in that first photo. Very cool!! Have a nice weekend.

  31. Jackie says:

    Love the deep purple irises. Fun popping by to see everyone’s take on a topic.

  32. Some pretty beautiful blooms right there. Gorgeous!

  33. scotiaspinner says:

    I love the colours in that iris blossom – so beautiful. The drive-by shot is lovely – those trees are magnificent.

  34. james says:

    Nice shots! I especially like the top photo.

  35. All of your photos are great, but I especially love that lion chair!

    Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

  36. Mascha says:

    What a famous chair! That is, what I need in this moment…
    The first is very painterly, I like it, thanks for sharing.
    The shadows of the lamps above the door are funny.
    Greetings from a cold and rainy summer

  37. narami says:

    This collection has so many peculiar captures, that lion chair is amazing! And the color of that flower is stunning, thanks so much for sharing jesh!

  38. jammy7000 says:

    Thank you for joining us at the Travel Tuesday meme, I look forward to your next contribution.

  39. Pieni Lintu says:

    Beautiful!! 🙂

  40. Teresa says:

    Love the image of the iris. Rest and relaxation is quite important. Nice idea for the “self” prompt. Thanks so much for joining Friday’s Hunt. Sorry I’m so late visiting. It’s been a crazy week on the farm.

  41. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Theresa, I understand. My pics are still being retrieved from my previous computer, so I pass for this week for Fri Hunt! Hope your weekend is more relaxed!
