Late Summer Flower Poetry



“Nothing Gold Can Stay”

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.

– Robert Frost –


Photographer Lucy Munoz and a great team from San Diego were inspired by this poem by Robert Frost to create a stunning shoot.

Fascinated, we look at this masterpiece that captivates us with the exceptionality of the subjects, the harmony of the color palette, a graceful bride and a wealth of floral splendor. Siren Floral Co, with her admirable sense of aesthetics and style, has combined the warm glow of summer and the first cheerful shades of autumn in a unique floral world, creating a dreamy ceremonial arch with delicate wildflowers and daisies.

It is the way selected elements interact with each other and complete the overall picture.

From Lucy Munoz: “ The feeling of desperately wanting to hold on to the things we love is something we can all relate to. For us, the desire to experience more of what we love got us all thinking–what is something we wish we could relive? A sweet kiss, the memory of holding your mother’s hand, a hug from someone you used to know, walking with someone in the rain, belly laughs with your bestie, long summer nights staring at the stars, or perhaps cuddling with your loved one.

As we collaborated and discussed we thought about summer. We often anticipate its arrival and when summer is coming to a close we’re left with some beautiful memories. Summer gave us memories of beautiful golden light, slower paced days, running barefoot across a field, abundance, and as Frost describes, “nothing gold can stay.” So as we are trying to hold on to the last moments of summer we understand that its sweetness will become distant cherished memories.”

And now let yourself be enchanted by the poetic images of Lucy Munoz.
