Live joyfully... for that is the portion in this life and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun....Ecclesiastes 9:9

We don't have a lot of flowers blooming yet but am always happy to see the Wild Irises that we transplanted many years ago from my folk's home place.. Father's Day is tomorrow and I dedicate this page of the Wild Irises to my late father in his memory.

I may do a photo essay doing self portraits with flowers as they start to bloom this summer...We had such a late start this year from winter weather that lasted until May 2nd with a snow storm that I am more than loving the flowers this year...I think flowers need life to join them, but I don't want to be the main focus or to have it look posed. It is more fun just to be part of the scene and will try to post only my best as the flowers bloom.

    Thank you ...It is hard to do a self portrait with flowers where it doesn't look posed but
    decided to do a series of self portraits by the flowers as they bloom this summer because
    in the fall I will turn 70..and it is sort of a goodbye to the 60's as I grow forth to the future...
    Symbolic of the stages of life as the flowers drop off the petals to mark another year.

    I agree with Don about 70 is the new 50!!! I am close on your heels age wise and I do not feel like I am the age that I am : ). I do love Iris blooms. These are beautiful and you add so much to the scene with your self portrait in it. I do not think it looks posed in any way! You have such beautiful clothes : )

    Love this self portrait. I think what you're describing is the reason most of your self portraits are fantastic!
