I had begun to see less and less well as I got closer to my eye surgery, but I was determined to get a photograph of a flower or plant for the week's theme. So I called into the local florist's shop and asked if I could photograph the flowers and plants. They were happy to oblige, saying that the flowers were in the cold room at the back, but the plants were in the front. I thought I would try the plants and was so delighted with the hanging spider plants that I spent my time photographing the little spider babies. They all looked so healthy and heavy with baby plantlets that, when my phone rang and I had to get on my way, I decided not to bother with the flowers but to go with one of these photographs.
It was not until I got home and got these onto the computer that I saw that…. they were not real. They are fabric. I am just so glad that I didn't buy one, which I had been tempted to do. Or comment on how easy they were to care for… which I might have done. :-/
Hopefully I will be seeing much better, very soon, now that my surgery is done. Time will tell. 😀
