I had a difficult day today and my husband and I went to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum near our house. I needed some movement, beauty, and nature. I also needed to focus on something outside myself. I found these 2 roses that have a lot in common, but a lot that is unique. To see more flower photos check out Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Today is a beautiful day and Mike and I explored some more of Morris County, New Jersey. It was the Open Gates Event with community gardens throughout the county open to visitors. This path leads from the garden plots, through the woods, to a wildlife blind.
We mostly saw ticks, dragonflies and this little frog.

“the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.”

WordPress has kindly reminded me that I have now been blogging on Lunanista for 4 years. It started as an easy communication with a geographically distant friend and has become so much more.
This was the beginning of my altered art gratitude journal. I was telling my friend about my art journal and she wanted to see pictures and here they all are after so many posts. The first year I had 269 visitors and at first I was mystified about how they found me. Since then I have found some wonderful groups that have helped me connect with people who have similar interests and concerns.
An early photography influence and the flower of the day Diva is Cee’s Photography.
My new friend Claudia McGill turned me on to making Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) and inspired me with her painting and poetry.
And most recently I have discovered others who are as crazy about photographs of doors as I am! Thanks Norm 2.0!
Want to hear something else that’s kind of crazy? I have had 1,679 visitors so far this year! I have been so grateful for this blog that started as a record of my gratitude and a way to deal with pain and disability. It became the practice ground for my life as an artist! Thank you for all your likes and comments. I appreciate every one. Please check out my professional art blog at Jeanette Clawson Art! Let’s make something beautiful!
I hope you enjoy this rose from the New York Botanical Garden. Tomorrow I’m off on a new adventure and won’t have access to my computer until next Monday. I hope you have a beautiful week. In the meantime, get lots of flower photos from Cee’s Flower of the Day posts.
These were all in the tropical part of the conservatory. I don’t know what they are called, but the yellow with the white feathery things and the red with the yellow feathers look related. I think the other 2 kind of look related except for the purple and white things on the red and white trumpetish flowers.
Just another day of pictures from the New York Botanical garden. For more familiar flowers check out Cee’s blog.
I have been debating about doing one post on the Rose Garden from the New York Botanical Garden or doing a series of posts featuring individual flowers. The weather was interesting without getting wet and it made for fabulous photography. So I’m going to feature individual roses for a few days and then do a post with the rest. It was almost overwhelming to be surrounded by such visual and fragrant beauty. I wish I could have roses here, but it would just be a buffet for the deer. So enjoy as I share the beauty of the NYBG Rose Garden. For more beautiful flowers check out Cee’s Flower of the Day.
