Fancy Flowers

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today, it's an honor to have you here. It's been a long time since I've shared any of my non-crafty photos with you. It's a gorgeous summer day here, and most of the windows in the house are open. There's a gentle breeze blowing through, so it really feels as if I've brought the outside in. I hope the weather is just as good wherever you are!

The first two photos were taken in my Gram's front yard last weekend. I love how the upper hydrangea bloom in the first is in the sun while the others are shaded. The color is so delicate...

The rose below was quite heavy and cast downward a little, I tried to get as low as possible to take the shot, but short of laying down on the lawn, which I have been known to do before, this was the best I could do. Even so, I'm still really happy with the image...

Last but by no means least is this peachy rose that I captured while on my way to a meeting a week ago. It was taken in the grounds of the city cathedral and the garden is full of them. I walked through there this morning while on my way to another meeting and they are all still looking amazing. This is my favorite of the three.

What is your favorite flower? If you have any flower photos you've taken, that you'd like to share, add the link in the comments and I'll feature them in a future post :)
