This is so gorgeous! You really take great shots! =)
I love the colour red! & the stones work perfectly!
What a beautiful photo! I think the flowers are Ixias.
A perfect picture for the holiday – beautiful! And those maybe the only fireworks we get to see! Enjoy your day – Kathleen
beautiful. what a combination. mmmmm
beautiful blog, lovely photos!
Hi. I love the contrast between the red flowers and the grey lichen. Jane
Yes, I agree. I love the blend of color in this shot!
Clever and charming.
Dear Wayside, Thanks so much for all your comments – they keep me going.
You have an enjoyable blog. I look forward to your posts!
Lovely pics of nature and beatiful poetry!! Just wondering where the mountain shots were taken? thanks!!
Hi. Thanks for visiting. All the shots are from the upper valley of Vermont and New Hampshire.
Thanks .. lovely mountain ridges .. looked a bit like the Alberni range …here is a site that I found, showing the range: http://www.portaec.net/local/beaufort/wpc/video1/index.html
Love the texture imparted by the lichen on the rock. Contrasts nicely with the flowers.
Thanks! I’ve become a huge fan of lichen and its many forms.
Beautiful work! I like the simplicity of your words. Simple, but full of meaning. And thanks for visiting my blog!
I enjoyed your work and site so much – lovely.
You take pics the way my son does. Great shot.
I like Lichen best
The colour contrasts are beautiful. I thought of fireworks too, when I took my Silent Sunday picture earlier!
Looks like drops of blood.
More like Christmas!! Nice image!
Lovely contrast of colors! Thank you for the share
Lovely! Thank you for liking my blog.
That is one great picture. Nice job. I’ll tell my friends about your blog-if you need a laugh come back and visit mine-thanks for the nice comment.
Hi! I like the contrast between the red flowers and the background in this photo, the background makes the flowers pop out.
Thanks for the like on my post “Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple”.
Beautiful nature photo! I love God’s creation – He’s the ultimate artist.
An inspirational combination of colours, love it!
I like a contrast of white and red flowers.
Lovely post! Thank you for the like on my blog post on The Tuscan Melon! Please come back again to visit!
Thanks for liking Living in Rural Mallorca! I don’t think I’ll ever be posting flower photos as lovely as yours . . . so beautifully artistic. My garden is desperate for rain at the moment – not a flower in sight, so this was quite uplifting
I do love your phrase “where observation and imagination meet nature in poetry”!! And your attentive eye misses no beauty, however small it may be! 😉
The colors are so rich! Very pretty.
lovely shot! glad you liked my pix.
what kind of flower are these?
This photo is beautiful and slightly weird – seeing things differently.
Nice shot 🙂
what a lovely photo! thanks for stopping by my blog!
Nice contrast with the lichens; nicely done.
This image is stunning! Thanks.
So peaceful. Thank you for the visit.
Very nice! It’s nice to think the garden is celebrating, but does seem to be what’s happening here in your photo!
this true deep beautiful red…more stunningly beautiful surrounded by the rocky gray. *Thank you* for such beauty!
Beautiful! I love the contrast and how the colors really pop out!
Love the contrast!
Wow, they’re small but very beautiful.
Very interesting blog – I love sharing with other plant lovers. Thanks for following me – I shall take great pleasure in following you. We lovers of art and nature need to keep in touch.
I like how you combine your poetry with the photograph. Very beautiful and touching.
I love this — the wonderful lichen-rich rock, against the delicate red flowers.
It’s quite gorgeous to me, you have so much grey and then the over grown bunch of bright red flowers.
Thanks for the visit to see Fabulous feathers. Great photos.
Gorgeous photo! Thanks for sharing and visiting! Keep taking your beautiful photos!

What a beautiful photo and lovely haiku.
So beautiful! Thanks for posting. 🙂
I like the marriage of poetry and photography. I also like the beautiful deep red color.
One comment – FWIW, for me the photo is a bit too busy. I think the photo would be more impactful if it were tighter. Close in on the red and gray and eliminate the green.
Seedbud I like this! Really pretty!
Love the color pairing of red and gray.
