Sunflower Freedom (Macro Monday)

This summer I’m toying with the idea of planting sunflowers in our yard. Just where in our yard I have no clue as technically we only have the one unsuitable flower bed.

As I look at this sunflower that was growing randomly in a field, it makes me wonder if I should simply sprinkle sunflower seeds across the backyard and let nature take care of the rest!

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!

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!

Colorful Beauty

There’s just something about a fresh flower that draws me in like a moth to a flame. I simply can’t get enough of them!

Natural Beauty

Given the particular flower family this bloom generates from, it’s more than appropriate to ask… “mum, how much longer?”
