In response to One Word Sunday — Threesome, a threesome of floral threesomes pushes the envelope of what flower pix can illustrate.

As Susie left home to start a new life with Dale, her mother watched and wondered.  Would the mixed marriage work?

Other floral threesomes can illustrate a poem and a point that go beyond flowers.  The following images link to earlier posts that use them.  Can U guess what the posts are about before clicking on the images?

I used 3 clusters of rhododendron blossoms to illustrate an abstract haiku.

In about 40 yrs of making bouquets from the many daylilies in my yard, how often have I seen 3 flowers blooming on just 1 stalk?  Exactly once, on the left in this bouquet.

3-on-1
With 3 separate stalks, the commonplace floral threesome on the right is a freebie, beyond what my title promises.  Buy 3; get 4.

    1. Thanks.  While trying for a photo with both the pink daylily and some of the black-eyed susans, I was initially disappointed that I could not get a purely pictorial composition that I really liked unless I either cut the distant flower or hid it in my photo editor.  Then the threesome challenge inspired making lemonade from the lemons, with the distant flower as Susie’s worried mother rather than just a background distraction.

  1. Ha! I’m impressed with your green thumb. I’ve always known flowers can be naughty, but I’ve never thought of threesomes with them before. I have seen flowers with such long pistils, they made me blush! I did take some home with me (of course I did). 🙂
