Do I change or stay the same

Todays assignment for Blogging 101 is to revise the tagline.  Personally I like my tagline “A peek into my Soul”.  I feel that it goes with my title and what I am about since I believe that each photo represents a piece of my soul that was saved since I found photography.

Take a look at the “Who I am” post from yesterday to see the direction that I ultimately want to take my blog to and let me know what suggestions you may have for changing the tagline or if you think it is GREAT as it is let me know that too.

All post must have a picture or two so here are some shots of two miniature Orchids that I treated myself to.

The third photo also shows “Depth” for this weeks WP Photo Challenge.

 

Longwood Gardens

One my day trip to Longwood gardens last weekend I found some beautiful and different flowers.  This is one of them.  This is a bloom on a tree, I do not know what it is called.  It looks like a pink hairy caterpillar with yellow tips on the end of each strand of hair.

 I liked this one because of the contrast between the yellow cluster of anther in the center and the burgundy petals that protect it.

 I am not sure what type of Orchids these are but they are beautiful.

 Although this Orchid has a few blemishes on its petals I still LOVE Orchids.  It kind of reminds me of Gene Simmons of KISS sticking out his super long tongue.

 Here are some rich dark Purple Tulips sometimes referred to as Black Heroes.

 

 Lavender.  The flowers on a Wisteria vine are very fragrant with lavender.  My mother as two large Wisteria vines (trees) in her yard.  When they are in bloom I love to sit in her back yard and absorb the fragrance.

 There are hundreds of varieties of Roses.  Each one more beautiful than the next.  They say roses are a girls best friend (second to diamonds).

The Lily

Lilies are my favorite flower.  I love all varieties.  This is a new one for me.  The Oriental Lily.  It has at least 2 sets of petals.   

Thank You for viewing some of my Reflections
