Fritillaria Imperialis

It’s kind of obvious now, at least to me, that when I fall for something or someone I fall totally, deeply, tremendously. I fall with my heart and soul and there is no grey zone.  In the education I give to my kids, I try to encourage them to be passionate, to do things 100% no matter what. Go for it, give it all. Don’t you mind about what others think, let your heart guide you and enjoy.

So when I saw this flower this morning at my favorite florist, I did not hesitate and I bought it right away.  After a quick search in my dear “Most Beautiful Flowers” book from Pierre-Joseph Redouté I can tell you that it is a Fritillaria Imperialis and I must say that its name fits it perfectly, don’t you think? It could belong to a Marry Poppin’s formula.

What a beauty!! And yes, I fell totally, deeply, tremendously for this object of my desire. My first reaction was, what a special bird we have here! I loved right away its fluffy crazy look.

Back home, I took the time to observe it and appreciate it even more.The shape, the lines, the structure, the superb colours.

So keep this name in mind, Fritillaria Imperialis!

    I had this flower in my parents’ garden and for me it was always a joy when it was blooming. It has a certain elegance to it, it was like the queen of the garden. Nor my favourite flower but there is something special about it 🙂
