Glamour Session 2

Glamour in Flartopia?  See what inspired me here, and see Session 1 here.


Every spring, the whole neighborhood can enjoy Miss Chef’s blooming glory, right at the bottom of our driveway.

This Asian lily stands about four feet tall and blooms for about a week.  It’s hard to tell in this picture, but the flowers are a deep, almost wine-dark red.

I suppose that’s a nice photo, too…but I’ve recently re-discovered a window in our house that does not have those intrusive mullions on it.  So let’s see what happens when we bring these beauties into the “studio.”

Ah, that’s more like it.  Of course, we have lots of flowers blooming.  Since I was in artistic mode, I convinced a couple of other models to pose for me.

I love this next one.  It looks like a floral sunset.

On the other hand, I encountered one model who insisted on natural lighting…and I wasn’t about to argue.

She knows what she’s talking about, doesn’t she?


Thanks to Justina at Morning Bray Farm for inspiring me for a whole growing season!


  1. Those photos are just fabulously beautiful! Oh, and the flowers are beautiful too.

    1. I have to give the flowers about 90% of the credit.

  2. The flowers in your 'studio' look surreal! They are mesmerizing in their color and translucency.

    1. I like the "veins" in the galliardia myself.

  3. I'll echo what everyone else said - what gorgeous flowers and photos! I started some gallardia from seed this year and it's poking along, VERY far from flowering. So I am happy to be able to enjoy yours!

    1. I think as galliardia as a very warm-season bloomer, so I'm sure yours will be along eventually. They've been very reliable self-seeders for me.

  4. Very beautiful photos, amazing.

  5. Awesomely awesome photos. I liked the floral sunset best.
