These showed up on my husband’s wallpaper and we were trying to remember where I took them. They were in the conservatory in the Keukenhof Gardens last May. It’s very hot and muggy inside the building and heavily scented with lilies because of these lily arches:
In yesterday’s post, I showed these three flowers for comparison. Here they are again as paintings. Which do you prefer? Cultivated or wild? Painting or photo?
I’m going to do two posts, one post with the macro photography, unaltered from the camera, and another post with digital art applied to the same photos.
Love is what it’s all about–
but food is a close second.

I was asking an Australian friend if they have any holidays that are basically about food. Not really. Okay, so I have several Australian friends, many of whom I’ve met through blogging, so pipe up if you disagree! Of course, as you know, the food in Australia is amazing, so perhaps we don’t need a specific holiday centered on feasting there.
Australia is my other home, and this is becoming clear as one fellow blogger thought I was Australian. I love Australia and my Australian friends. Today is an American holiday, though, and I’m going to celebrate it by starting this celebration of food off with home-grown and home cooked foods before moving on to some of my international culinary samples.
