Hi! Today I’m posting a few photos of something that makes me happy … flowers! My Dad was a very keen gardener and he instilled in me a love of plants and flowers. Unfortunately, I didn’t inherit his green thumb (my gardening skills are somewhat limited), but I do appreciate beautiful flowers of almost every kind. Carnations are the one exception. I’m not sure why, but I just don’t like them (sorry carnations!).
It’s amazing how a simple bunch of flowers can lift my spirits. A homegrown bunch is best, but if I can’t persuade a gardener to part with their treasures, I’m happy to buy them from the florist too.
The following photos were taken at Tamborine Mountain. While visiting for the weekend, I purchased a beautiful bunch of dahlias for just $10. They were grown on the mountain. The photos were shot in the late afternoon using natural light at the cottage where we were staying. I was practicing with my new macro lens … practice may eventually make perfect! I hope you enjoy flowers too.
