Macro Flower Photography and Meanings

5 Comments

Sweet Williams flowers are at the center of many romantic legends. One such legend is steeped in the poetry of the English writer John Gay, who wrote, Sweet Williams Farewell to black-eyed Susan: A Ballad. In this piece of poetry, both the sweet William and the black-eyed Susan were depicted as real people sweet William as a sailor, and the black-eyed Susan as his beloved, who must part from him. The story tells of the two meeting, then having to separate again sweet William assuring his love and fidelity all the while. Aside from having some artistic acclaim, sweet Williams flowers are also thought to be very useful in the culinary arts. These blossoms, which have a mild, clove-like taste, are mostly used as garnishes for cakes, pastries and drinks; however, they are also known to add a unique dash of flavor to salads, floral liquors, jellies and butters, as well as herbal tea.

wild flower name-

Dahlia’s are spicy flowers, and their meanings range from a sign of warning, to change, to travel, to even a portent of betrayal. The varied symbolic meanings of the dahlia make this flower a wild card. Give to that unique, eclectic person whom you wish to compliment his/her wild side. Combine them with slender flowers like irises or tulips for a striking visual display as well as a combined symbolic message that says “temper your adventures with a kind heart.”

Origninal Dahlia Name-

This is a capture of rain drops reflections on The Bachelor Button Flower. There is no secret there and it has nothing to do with processing either.Each droplet reflects its surroundings, so in each of them you can find many different reflections by simply changing the angle you look at it.A water drop is a spherical mirror which shows the reflective image inverted compared to the object (in this case).
To capture reflections in a raindrop you have to look for it unless you have serious knowledge of geometric optics.

If you don’t know the Bachelor Button by this name, you aren’t the only one. Probably, you know it by one of these names: Basketflower, Bluebottle, Hurtsickle, and Cornflower. Sometimes, this flower is known as the Boutonniere flower. But, all of these names will connect you to the same flower, which is the Bachelor Button. There is a story behind this flower, of course with a name like that. You will see that bachelors wore this flower if they liked someone and wanted to date them. The longer the flower stayed alive and the longer they wore it, it showed how strong their feelings were for that person.

Babies, Cuteness Overload

Babies grow up fast. One minute, they’re tiny, wrinkly faced newborns emitting the littlest of cries while helpless in their bassinets. The next, they’re chubby-cheeked, toothy almost-toddlers, ready for adventure, whether mommy and daddy can keep up or not! That is why they are so DARN CUTE ! New parents so proud!

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE

Wife of ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle to testify at Texas trial

Leave a comment

Yes !!!

Global News

STEPHENVILLE, Texas – The widow of the former Navy SEAL depicted in the blockbuster film “American Sniper” will be among the first to testify against the man charged with killing her husband.

A day before opening statements in the trial of former Marine Eddie Ray Routh, prosecutors said Tuesday that Chris Kyle’s widow, Taya, will take the stand. They also filed documents outlining “bad acts” and other offences allegedly committed by Routh that they may want to bring before the jury.

Defence attorneys have already said they will pursue an insanity defence for Routh, who family members said suffered from
post-traumatic stress disorder.

Routh, 27, faces life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder in the shooting deaths of Kyle and Kyle’s friend Chad Littlefield as the pair tried to help Routh at a shooting range two years ago.
