Spring awakenings (WPC – Awakening)

Despite what might be happening outside my window right now, the birds and blooms are telling me the earth is awakening. It’s spring time!

Awakening is the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.






Spring is in the Air – Happy Easter!







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?






Brightly Coloured Raindrops (Flower Friday)

Why is it flowers never look so pretty as when they are covered with fresh raindrops?

My baby petunias are hanging on for dear life as the winter winds begin blowing once again.







Hidden within (Flower Friday)

When there are Lisianthus at the supermarket, there is no way I am able to walk past without adding a couple of bunches to my trolley. They are such a beautiful bloom.

Their old-world appearance gives them an old-world charm that appeals so very much to me. Particularly when I can add a filter or two to make them even more-so!







Frilly Bits (Flower Friday)

This pink flower that was amongst my mother’s day bouquet had the most petals I have EVER seen on a flower.

The mind-boggling part was that there were still more petals near the centre that had yet to release!






From deep within (Macro Monday)

It’s a love/hate relationship I have with tiger lilies. The blooms are absolutely glorious but those stamens covered in only-to-eager-to stain-pollen are a whole different ball-game.

Then again, they do provide a wonderful subject matter to photograph. One must always look for that silver lining mustn’t one!
