One Single Flower

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week is ‘One Single Flower’. I have many photos of flowers, but I decided to take some new photos specially for this post. This is an Osteospermum flower that I brought indoors to photograph. It’s rather damp outside which is why this little flower has a very wet centre. I’veContinue reading “One Single Flower”

Teeny Tiny Bee, and more…

Today is a bank holiday, so no working, I can just use my computer for fun things 🙂 So I thought I’d do another blog post as there are more photos to be shared. A tiny solitary bee also visited that Osteospermum that I shared in yesterday’s post. If you compare these photos with yesterday’sContinue reading “Teeny Tiny Bee, and more…”

A different angle

This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘Change Your Perspective’, and as my orchid was right there next to me I thought perhaps I could try some different angles on the flowers to get a different perspective from the way I usually photograph it. It now has 3 flowers and they face in different directions. I wouldContinue reading “A different angle”

Back then, I didn’t know that in the future I would still be enjoying this lovelyContinue reading “Future Flowers”

Crochet Art

I created some crochet art for members of my family this Christmas and I can now finally show it off after they’ve all received their gifts. First off, for my sister I created a branch of cherry blossom, with some embroidery to create the branch: Mum had some Japanese Anemones, again with some embroidery forContinue reading “Crochet Art”
