I was born in the interior of B.C. Canada, but was raised during the first half of my life in Germany. I have always been fascinated with photography but could never afford the film or the development of it. Needless to say I was more than likely the most excited person in the world when I learned of digital photography. There are a few things which I realy enjoy in life. On the top of that list are flowers as I'm sure anyone can tell by my photos, after that I would have to say, birds especialy, hawks, eagles and humming birds. I also enjoy the mountans, oceans, rivers, lakes and the forest. Actualy I love nature in general. But unfortunately I live in the city and don't own a car, so I rarely get out to the country. But I'm hoping that some day soon that will change. When I'm not out taking photographs, I'm usually, cooking, baking or outside tending to my flower and vegetable garden or playing with my best friend, my dog Bear. I have four children who are all grown and moved out of the house. I guess they call that, being an empty nester, which I think is kind of a silly thing to call it, because my house is rarely ever empty. I have twelve grandchildren and one and a half great grandchildren. Lol. The half great grandson being dew any day now. I can hardly wait to meet him. Which brings me to something else I enjoy doing. I also enjoy all sorts of crafts and at the top of that list is crochetting. Anyway that's all I can think of at the moment. I always feel silly writing about myself. But I realy don't know why.

What the colour burgundy means in flowers

Burgundy dedicated to Michel Jackson

Michael Jackson, the king of pop, has passed away. Burgundy colored flowers have been dedicated to his legend. He died of a heart attack at his LA home while eating pizza. Send a burgundy colored rose in honor of him: order here.


Be careful with darker shades of red. Oftentimes, a deep crimson—especially in a carnation or a rose—signifies mourning, as at a death. Burgundy, however, with its slightly purplish tone, suggests an unconscious sort of beauty. For the lover who underestimates herself, a burgundy bouquet provides a lush, contemplative color.

If you decide your lover would fall in love with a burgundy rose make sure you let her know the truth about her beauty. Not only is she underestimating herself, but doubt can slip in also. With these flowers it will take care of the doubt, and show what you truly believe.

What the colours red and white mean in flowers

Published July 25th, 2012

Often symbolizing unity, red and white are also, when in a rose, the flower symbol for England. If you aren’t trying to praise Britannia, however, adding a little white to your red bouquet, whether as separate flower or in striped or variegated types, incorporates innocence into the deep and passionate love of red.

Putting these two colors not only makes one fall in love in a completely new way, but also reinstates the respect you have for that one you love. Red and white roses are extremely bold, yet not over bearing. This flower has a great combination to get the point across but to do it in a way that won’t seem harsh

Published July 25th, 2012

Tingeing the purity of white with the youthful cheer of pink, flowers in this combination are perfect for holiday or celebratory occasions such as Mother’s Day. The pink lends a degree of grace and gentleness which complements the innocence of a white flower. Together, they will show affection for whoever receives them.

If only it were true what they say that you can win over any girl with a rose. However with a pink and white rose you have a chance, maybe not to completely win her over, but to certainly raise the likelihood of her falling for you. This great flower brings in just the right amount of love at the beginning of relationships.

What the colour purple means in flowers

Purple has always been the color of royalty. Since you won’t be giving flowers to kings and queens any time soon, you can think of the symbolic meaning of flowers in this hue as deep respect and admiration. Success and noble bearing, even without noble titles, deserve the recognition of meaningful purple flowers.

You know that person that you just want to admire. The one who would be king or queen if we had the choice of voting for kings and queens. Well, you can make them feel noble from giving them their own personal purple flower. Just make sure that they are in the right mood for a purple rose
