What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

Menorise; Saturday Sayings

"Respect yourself if you would have others respect you."
(Baltasar Gracian)

To clear away confusion it is Neomarica Gracilis -
common names are Wandering (or Walking) Iris, or Poor Man's Orchid 
though it is neither an iris, nor an orchid!


  1. Iris look so soft.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  2. Hi Yam - beautiful ... orchids are amazing ... I hope all well this windy weekend - cheers Hilary

  3. It looks like a tea-party for three bugs.

  4. its beautiful and I like the name poor mans orchid. mother loved iris and had a yard full but not like this one

  5. No matter what it is called...I call it GORGEOUS
    And what a wonderful quote for us to remember in our day to day lives
    Hugs HiC

  6. I think this is very true, and I sense applies to kindness and generosity too. We all carry regrets and shame and a litany things we wish we had done differently... by being kind to ourselves we can be more generous to others too. They will reciprocate in their turn.

  7. Another flower beauty and wise counsel; thank you.
