THE IRIS

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Not the most creative for Up Right, but “Juice It Up Right” it is:)

They probably having a fantastic angle on their subject!

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

      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.

      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).

    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.

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

      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).

    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.

    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.
