A Posy of African Violets For Your Sunday


I love the multiple exposure of small flowers and this one of a pink African violet I have on my window sill is one I took this week. I love how it seems to distill the various flowering stages into this one image making it seem to be a small bunch, a posy of colour and light!

Enjoy this on your Sunday wherever you are. It is sunny here, if still quite cold and I am going to take Joni and have a walk on the beach now that the tide is on the way out. I hope you do something as relaxing for the rest of your day.

  1. +Ellie Kennard In all fairness, Keith looks after the houseplants – including my 2 orchids which just keep on flowering, we also had a new flower come up on one of the Christmas Cacti too, just 2 weeks ago! In return I do the garden, which is starting to wake up from its winter snooze, which makes me very happy :0)

  2. A lovely story, +Karen Cooper – and I am sure that I would have been like your mum and killed the African violets here, except that it's usually Steven who looks after them and they stay alive and flower again. As he has been away for 2 weeks, it's been a trial for them (and for me) to see if they still are alive! (they are) We have a Christmas Cactus too, which I never remember to water, but despite that it still blooms, just not very well. 🙁

  3. Lovely image +Ellie Kennard These were my Gran's favourites. She liked to grown the deep purple ones – and she killed every single one, just couldn't keep them alive! She was very successful with Christmas cacti though and we have one on our kitchen window sill and every year it flowers I'm reminded of her – it's like she's come to visit for Christmas :0)

  4. Aww thanks to him for buying these beautiful flowers 🙂 I've heard about his mentorships before and I believe it can be an incredible experience for me if I can ever join!!

  5. Thanks a lot +Susan Gabriel

    +Banafshe KH thank you very much. Steven bought these and they are in their second flowering. I am glad that I remembered t water them while he is away, because that inspired me to take this photo! I'm glad you like my When Life is a Blur collection, too. I really learned to love blur images and techniques when I took part in the blur mentorship that +Alex Lapidus teaches. If you keep an eye on his profile you will see when he announces the next one. Maybe you would be able to apply for it?

    +Muhammad Kashif – hello my friend. Thanks, I did have a nice walk and I think I frightened all the sharks away! Thanks for the comment.
