Finer than any sand are dusts of gold that gleam, Vague starpoints, in the mystic iris of their eyes.
Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil and Paris Spleen: Poems

Here in this garden of nocturnal delight lunar shadows dance on dew covered grass while mystical creatures hop between the delicate stems of swaying Gladiolus
Edward McCall, A collaboration with Shadow of the past, Garden of nocturnal delight

This corner of the farmyard I like most:
As well as any bloom upon a flower
I like the dust on the nettles, never lost
Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
Edward Thomas, Tall Nettles

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
William Wordsworth, Daffodils

Scarborough Fair, Beall and Finch

Not at all what I was expecting from the title but a beautiful portrayal of iris. Splendid work again
Scarborough Fair is a favourite of mine and I have to say never have I heard such a beautiful and emotional version as this one - thank you

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

What a foofy Strat! If this one was a Rorschach Test, I'm afraid I would be kicked out of the room.:)
Sure is beautiful.
