Fading Flowers

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”

-Dr. Seuss

I’m sad to see these flowers fading. We really enjoyed the brilliant pops of color they brought to our “weed” garden. This was our first half-hearted attempt at a butterfly garden. We aren’t gardening people and we decided to dip our toes in the water and see how hard it might be to casually grow some flowers. Thank goodness our expectations were low. This was an excellent lesson for us. We have a better idea of what we might do next year when we make an honest effort to start a butterfly garden.

Although they are losing their color and becoming brittle, even faded flowers have certain beauty and quiet dignity.

Feelin’ the Blues

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit blue so it seemed only appropriate that I take part in the Sunday Stills: Blue.

It’s hard to feel blue with such beautiful flowers all around.

These little guys are certainly enjoying the blue sky from their high perch!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Flowers

Black and white photos of flowers are fascinating. Although color photos are stunning, it’s those easy to miss details that really catch my eye and those are seen best in black and white. At least, that’s what I think!
