Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red Flowers

This post is for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. This week’s theme is red flowers and so I decided to revisit a few of the flower photographs that I’ve taken over the last year or so. The poppy pictures were the main things to catch my attention as I wandered through my archives but I also found a few red roses and tulips that I thought you might also like.

I’m still really behind on visiting blogs so if I haven’t been over to see you recently, I apologise. Hopefully I’ll be able to spend some time blog hopping soon. 🙂

Cee’s Black and White Challenge: What is Beautiful to You

This post is in response to Cee’s Black and White Challenge. This week’s theme is, What is Beautiful to You, so I thought I’d post a few galleries. I hope you all like them.


I find beauty in roses, blooming gloriously throughout the summer months, their velvet soft petals curling in intricate layers.

I find beauty in the honey bees, meandering over the flower heads as they collect their nectar.

I find beauty in my nephew’s smile as he larks before the camera.

I find beauty in my oldest friends, Bear and Elephant.

I find beauty in roses, elegantly swaying in a summer breeze.

And yes – I know I’ve already shared some roses. I got a little carried away taking photographs of them. But they’re just so beautiful…
