Opening to the Light

This is an orchid, but it reminds me of an iris in the way its petals unfold. At least I know what THIS flower is! (or so the sign at the arboretum said...)

Thanks for visiting! I wish you a peaceful evening, and dreams of great beauty.


  1. Absolutely your photography. Thanks for comment on my site too. I'm so glad you liked what I had to say and that you felt you gained something from reading it. :) Your blog is really a reader!

  2. It DOES look like an iris! Wow! I've never seen an orchid like this! So cool! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  3. Miss Ladybug, I very much like the spirit of your blog, as you can surmise from my comment! And you know I'm a reader of yours, as well....

  4. Hi Cindy,

    It was in a room marked "orchids," so I would be surprised if it were in there by mistake. I just assumed it WAS one because it was in the orchid room of the arboretum! If I'm wrong, I'll be upset that I've told everyone it's an orchid!

  5. beautiful hues Lynda...
    I'm not too good on naming flowers either looks like an orchid to me......

  6. I'm not too good at naming anytning, Kim! My mind works best in abstraction--I'm far too right-brained!

  7. Lynda at first I thought that you took a dive to the bottom of the ocean. This is very nice close up photo. Anna :)

  8. The perspective offered through your orchid images reminds me that transformation is miraculous in each of us and is also ongoing. Part of my life focuses on running a photo company concerning very young children. Similar to nature photography, you can choose to capture a different part of the soul each time you peer into a lens. Images speak.


I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
