Laura



Laura works at Hart's Greenhouse & Florist in Canterbury.  I asked her to show me one of the hundreds of crysanthemums offered for sale this fall, so she picked this one up.  This is the way you want to buy same-season mums . . . many tight buds that will burst open later, when the plant is in the ground, but enough open to be appealing right away.

People who work with flowers always look so happy, and Laura is no exception. Lovely portrait Jack.

Lovely portrait Jack!

Fantastic plant but, Laura's enthusiastic smile would have me taking something to the check out counter.

I love the real-life beauty of this shot.

Lowell said...

Laura with the smiling face. Very sweet. And I intend to keep mum about this!

SRQ said...

Who wouldn't be smiling with so much color around them and HDP requesting a photo opp? Nice portrait.

All that lovely colour! The joys of working in a greenhouse.

How wonderful to work with flowers and the perfect reason to smile! And a lovely smile it is! You do have a way of catching people at their best for your photos! Love them! Hope you have a great weekend, Jack, full of color and smiles!!

Such a happy portrait.

People who know about flowers and plants always get my attention!

Karl Demetz said...

I fully agree with Grace, wonderful portrait, Jack!

The mum is lovely and Laura looks so friendly. Nice portrait, Jack.

RedPat said...

She looks to be a lovely person!

This is lovely but it made me laugh because her pose is reminiscent of the ones adopted by 'The Calendar Girls' in their famous nude calendars. Only they use sunflowers and cupcakes!

Lois said...

She looks as pretty as the flowers!

Michelle said...

A beautiful lady to match those beautiful flowers!

Birdman said...

Looks to be an explosion of color soon. I want one of those.

Halcyon said...

I like Laura! She knows her plants and has a beautiful smile. :)

Jack, I remember when you posted your first portraits on your blog... You have really stepped it up a notch! I know that Laura would love a copy of this lovely photo.

Bises,

Beautiful portrait! I love the colour contrast to her white hair and dress.

Kate said...

I hope that you gave her a copy of this delightful photo. I'd love to have one of myself just like it, surrounded by beauty.
