Boxed Beauties (Flower Friday)

Whilst we were out and about over the summer, we’d stopped for some road-works out on the highway when I noticed these glorious blooms beside us.

Was it accidental or had someone taken the time to arrange a little-something special for us all as we waited? Whatever the reason, on that sunny summer afternoon they were simply beautiful to see.






Gerbera Grunge (Friday Flowers)

It seems almost wrong to “dirty up” a beautiful bright pink gerbera but gosh darn it, a fresh gerbera is just too hard to resist sometimes!

If what is old is new again, why can’t what is new be old?





Pink Papered Petals (Friday Flowers)

An old photo of a pink tulip with a new look. In this age of technology there is no longer such a thing as an old photo. With a little tweaking, a filter or two, an old photo can have new life breathed into it.

Is is recycling, repurposing, or renewing? Or is it simply enjoying the beauty that always was?






Watching from Within the White (Flower Friday)

As is so often the case with me, I was so focused on getting a clear, closeup shot of this white Lisianthus that it wasn’t until I’d downloaded my photos that I noticed the two balls within.

It was as if there was a pair of green eyeballs looking up at me. In retrospect I’m rather glad that I didn’t notice them earlier, they’re a tad freaky!

Pretty Little Insect (OWPC – Insect)

When it comes to attractive insects the one that comes immediately to mind for most of us is the butterfly. If you can believe Wiki there are some 18,500 species. Who knew!

Insect is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
