Heraldic blooms

 Amaryllis rampant.

Hyacinth couchant.

Freesia sejant.

All terms normally applied to the postures of lions
on a shield.


  1. Fabulous photos all of them. You have captured such a wonderful light. The only word I didn't know was sejant so your link was great thanks.
    I love your photo in your last post too. Your camera must be good but your eye is excellent.

  2. I was thinking along similar lines to Marilyn: you have such an eye for a picture. A very clever post............

  3. It's only just gone 7 in the morning here. I am not long past couchant, and am taking my tea sejant.
    As for rampant? Just a distant memory..
