I promised you flowers

Single lilies line the lower walkway at the house in Friburgo (Muri-Condominium Stucky)      We have never bought any of these lilies, Manuel, our 'jardineiro', trades with other gardeners for bulbs and cuttings and also from time to time brings flowers from the forest. We don't talk about that though because for some of them it may be illegal to take them from the forest.
 
 

Double day lily - from a neighbors yard. Colors are not edited but I cropped all of these photos to bring the Flower to our complete attention. Double (or triple?) day lily - taken April 2005, Nova Friburgo - lining the entrance of a local Pousada. The photo has been cropped but not edited. Many of our flowers bloom in late fall (April/May). During the summer (December - March) there is too much rain and clouds which makes for a lot of growth and a lot of green but no flowers. It takes the sunshine of fall and winter to bring out the flowers in both the garden and in the forest's trees.

  1. Your photos are beautiful. These lilies, but also the other photos I see on your blog. I am like you, I have a hard time throwing any photos out, even if they are blurred, too light, too dark. A digital camera helps because I can see if the photos is bad, so I delete it while I am still there to take another shot. And, with Photoshop, sometimes I can make a mediocre photo look good.

  2. I get so carried away in amazement and in awe of the natural beauty you have right outside your door in Brazil that I forget was a talented photographer you are. We all have beautiful things around us if we just take the time to you. You showcase yours in ways that take my breathe away.
