Surrounded by Beauty, 2

Flower, name unknown

Flowering plants play such an important part in our lives. Their color and composition have inspired artists such as Georgia O’Keefe, Van Gogh and Monet, and poets like William Wordsworth. They are accepted as a symbol of love and passion, even innocence. Some have even been recognized for their medicinal properties.

Here are a few more from the garden. Unfortunately, I’m still working on learning their names.

Enjoy!

Flower, name unknown

I’m constantly surprised at the variety of flowers that grow, some wild or without much coaxing, here in Jamaica. These I took in the garden at my cousin’s house.
