some springtime blooms from Taos, NM

went out in the early morning with flowers on my mind after reading this poem

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge:

“What if you slept?

And what if, In your sleep

You dreamed?

And what if,

In your dream, You went to Heaven

And there plucked A strange and Beautiful flower?

And what if, When you awoke,

You had the flower In your hand?

Ah, what then?”

orange poppy bright

and another view of the same blossom

bright orange lightand then here one of my favorite flowers of all time is the iris, I can smell them even now thru the power of rememberance

sweet purple softness

enjoy your springtime, it is so fleeting

I will post these over at my RedBubble store in case you would like a card, print or even poster and they just recently started selling photos in post card forms.  RedBubble quality is extremely high

    Well, I think I’d been given the gift of a lifetime because I’d know! Beautiful light in your photographs!

    Oh, I love iris, too! We have some that are from iris that Dad planted in the 1950s – they are two tone purple and look much like the one you posted. Lovely photos!

    Hi CheyAnne!

    Did you already e-mail me your gardening essay for the notecard contest? I know you posted a comment asking for details or my e-mail address, but I don’t see an e-mail response from you yet. I’ll check my spam folder to see if you sent something that might not have made it yet. No big rush—I’m posting the two that I’ve gotten and would like to post yours as well, if you’ve finished it yet!

    What beautiful flowers. Love the iris!


  8. shoreacres Says:

    CheyAnne, your flowers are simply gorgeous. And the Coleridge poem is one I didn’t know – it’s very thought-provoking, and I may try and do something with it. What then? – such a good question to ponder!


  9. CheyAnne Sexton Says:

    that is an excellent question to ponder? What are you thinking about making? How are things? Always fun to hear from you Linda

    Thank you so much for the visit and the wonderful compliment


I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
