As I was preparing this post and writing out the description of the image for the visually impaired (Alt text), I found that I loved the picture my words painted in my mind. The text gave a warm and comforting feeling, which is how I saw the image. The Alt text is what I will leave you with today, hoping all readers will come away feeling softly cradled. “A very pale pink and white petalled softly focused image, with the darker centre of a magnolia flower in detail, almost like an anemone with tentacles pillowed in the soft petals.” Have a lovely day, friends.
This one I could not resist! It was taken today, in the below freezing late fall weather. This beautiful rose bush was featured more than once in my Flower a Day project, so today when I knew I would be seeing it, I made sure to have my camera with me, and I wasn’t disappointed. It does seem unlikely, that such fragile blooms would be so cold hardy, but I really got a lift seeing all the bright roses and in particular this lovely bloom along with the promise of another to come. I hope you all have a bright day.
To wish you a good Friday. Although I suspect this little moth (possibly a cabbage looper) is chewing through my brassicas, I couldn’t resist photographing it on this lovely dahlia flower. Breaking off from doing accounting work which was pressing, I wandered outside saw this and caught it on my phone. I hope you all have a lovely Friday!
After a day of frustration I got out for a quick evening walk and I was rewarded with this scene, also on my phone, so I leave you with it and hope your weekend is a good one.
This image of a single fuchsia represents for me the distilled joy and the beauty of flowers, in particular the delicacy and transience of each bloom of the fuchsia in its short life. It reminds me of a bird taking off and of a ballerina with arms raised gracefully, about to leap into the air in the arms of her partner. It seems to radiate the sheer joy of living and life.
I hope you enjoy it and it helps to make your weekend joyful and bright! It is another in my series of multiple exposure floral images.
