Florals for spring

Flowers are the music of the ground. From earth’s lips spoken without sound.

  1. I once read that During Victorian era, special meanings were assigned to various flowers to send out coded messages and allowed individuals to express feelings which could not be spoken. How amazing is that? Thanks for sharing and have a good day. Aiva 🙂

    1. I think that still holds true today. There’s so much variety and many potential combinations to evoke different moods. Thanks for reading!

  4. “music of the ground” reminds me of our conversation about the music garden at the Toronto Marina, which is still a mystery to me.

    1. I suppose this idea of “visual music” alludes to synesthesia, the phenomenon of stimulation in one sensory pathway leading to involuntary experiences in another sensory path. Interesting to think about!

    1. Admiring all the colours is my favourite part of spring!

  6. There’s a sense of “traveling” through the various flowers from around the world, all without having to leave the comforts of your hometown (i.e. botanical gardens)! Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos!

    1. Most of these flowers were in fact found while travelling. I thought they were some of my most interesting floral photos. But yes, botanical gardens are a great spot to visit for a little stroll around the world too!

  7. Love it. I’m excited to report that I can see my perennials starting to poke up through the dead leaves! I just read, though, that here in MN we should resist the urge to start “cleaning up the garden” for now. We are advised to wait because so many beneficial bugs are still using the garden as is. That’s OK. Off to California today and by the time I have a moment to even think about working in the garden, it’ll be mid-April. Can’t wait for those flowers to bloom! It’s always something of a conundrum to me, traveling in the summertime. If I go in June/July I miss the blooming of so many of my flowers. August, when my love of gardening starts to wane and when the nonblooming plants are dead and brown (as opposed to earlier in the summer when the nonblooming plants are simply “prebloom,” so they’re fresh and green and a beautiful backdrop to the blooming flowers) is a good time to travel but some years I can’t stand waiting until then.

    1. I’ve been tempted to get started on my balcony garden with the good weather this week, but it looks like we are due for another cold spell so it’ll have to wait.

      Lucky you to be off to California! Looking forward to hearing about that trip. Have you been able to get vaccinated yet?

      1. Yes, we’re both at or beyond our “superpower date.” Still, I’m double masking, wearing gloves, and I even brought my face shield home from school. Should be a fun 6-7 hours between arriving at MSP and finally pulling all that stuff off when we drive away from PHP.

      2. Good stuff! The vaccine deployment in the US has been so much more impressive than here in Canada. I’ve been vaccinated as a frontline healthcare worker but my under 60 family members probably won’t be vaccinated until at least September at the rate we’re going!

      3. That’s odd. I would expect Canada to outpace us in the vaccine arena. As for the US, once we got a normal human being in the Oval Office, things started working properly again. Such a relief. I don’t know how much you’ve paid attention to the uptick in cases in the US recently, but Minnesota is starting to turn red on all the maps again. 😦

      4. I think the issue is that we have no domestic manufacturing for the vaccines here so we’re dependent on places like the US sending doses to us. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Case numbers don’t look promising, but at least you’re protected now. Stay safe!

  9. So pretty! I don’t think I’ve ever seen tulips is someones garden here before but I know they can grow here. Weird.

    1. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen anyone with tulips in their home garden either. They’re my favourite flowers though.
