The Romantic Ranunculus

Hello, friends! I hope your weekend was splendid! In spite of what the calendar indicates, the days here are sunny and comfortable with few signs of autumn. And for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, spring is well underway. So, for your new week, some images of  a  sweet flower many of us love. Ruffly ranunculus in their myriad colors can at different times in their bloom cycle resemble a rose, a poppy or even a peony – all feminine, evocative flowers which appeal to our romantic spirits.

For several years I’ve wanted to create a ranunculus calendar and finally did this year. Here’s a sample month:

And the images for all 12 months:

It’s available here in my main shop, along with my other 2013 calendars, some of which I’ve featured already on the blog but some of which are brand new and will be the subject of upcoming posts. You can take a peek at them here:

Toujours Paris




A Magical Garden

Paris Peonies

Paris Roses

The Oregon Coast

And lastly on the calendar releases, a special collaboration with D of our Paris images in classic neutral tones, available in our other shop, Paris Plus:

Classic Paris

A few more bits of news:

1. Use coupon code CAL20 for a 20% discount on any of our calendars from now until October 15th (extended!)

2. For more from Paris, there’s a new post up at Paris By Two featuring picturesque Parisian doors.

3. My next newsletter will be out tomorrow with photo tips and a free download. If you’re not already on the list, you can sign up to receive it here.

Thank you, as always for stopping by and brightening my day!

with love,

    Hello G, the first photo is absolutely stunning. I do like the fields of ranunculus too, very pretty.
    Do you ever feel you have one of the best jobs? Traveling and taking photos of flowers and romantic places must be right up there. Happy autumn to you and David.

  • Oh, girl, these are so, so pretty. Bet it was fun putting this calendar together. Since you rarely find ranunculus in Texas, I’m enjoying these even more!

    Headed to Texas from London tomorrow….

  • So so beautiful Georgianna! A calendar is such a brilliant idea :)

    September 28, 2012
  • Maybe this isn’t quite a “romantic” way to describe it — but the first photo looks good enough to eat ! And you already know why I’m particularly fond of ranunculus :) Have a great weekend xo L

    September 28, 2012
  • Simply breathtaking……
    I also want to say I enjoy your tutorial on the newsletter, thanks for sharing that and that beautiful texture too!
    Hope you have a beautiful autumn!!!!

    September 28, 2012
  • The colour of that ranunculus in the top photo is simply wonderful, and I believe this is the first time I see a field of ranunculus.

    Beautiful Georgianna, absolutely beautiful!

    I hope you will enjoy a fine weekend ;-)

  • As always your photos are stunning, also thanks for the informative newsletter which I picked up in my email this morning.

    September 29, 2012
  • How beautiful! You know, I adore ranunculus!

    September 29, 2012
  • Your gorgeous images of the ranunculus are giving roses some serious competition in the “most beautiful flower” category!

    September 30, 2012
  • G, this is fabulous! My faves, the vase, the rich maroon of the top image, and the one with the stem that is bent and looks like an arrow. I had a look at Etsy and also especially the Oregon Coast calendar, which I like very much. Your idea on how to re-use these desk calendar images is very clever of you and very smart too, as I also like to re-use calendar image favourites. Keep well, ;OD

    October 2, 2012
  • Wow, beautiful and incredible as always!! I love these gorgeous pictures, especially the first one and the beautiful fields of poppies. Congrats on the calendars. I will check them out. Have a fabulous week! Wini xox

  • They are enchantingly romantic indeed and such a perfect bridge between the seasons, in terms of their regal, highly saturated colour palette that seems to dip a proverbial toe into both summer and autumn.

    Thank you sweetly for your beautiful anniversary wishes, dear Georgianna, they really mean a lot to both of us.

    ♥ Jessica

  • Oh how did I miss this post?! It’s like fireworks of gorgeous flowers, each more stunning than the other! :)

    October 8, 2012
  • Hello dear Georgianna! I am back to blogging interaction! ;) How are you these days? Hope you are doing just fine having much fun and lots of inspiration!
    Well, I have to say that it was your blog where I got acquainted with ranunculus first time, and your amazing photography always makes me fall in love with this flower again and again! I have just spotted it has another name — Persian Buttercup… You noticed it so right: ranunculus is the three most beautiful flowers in one!
    Hugs and a happy week to you and all yours!
