Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

The presentation makes this so personal - as if she is blooming just for us ! Ace use of textures, of course, and I must say dear Pareeerica has stock enough for me to go nowhere else !

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks, Ronnie. I brought this Crocus indoors to take its portrait. Yes, Pareeerica has many lovely textures.

Brenda from Canton, United States

I am always interested in the personal projects of other photographers - the commitments they make over time to certain subjects. I continue to be amazed at the way you capture the inner glow of a bloom - as if it is radiating light. I love the delicate texture work - the edges mirroring back the colors of the flower in a subtle way.

28 Mar 2013 2:04pm

@Brenda: Thanks, Brenda. You are a good example of an artist setting little goals. I find it helps me stay focused. I'm delighted you find my flowers glowing. That is how I see them.

Really exquisite ... beautiful flower, colors, details and textures! I've always loved these flowers but have never grown them :)
