TODAY'S FLOWERS - Poppy & Roses


WISHING YOU ALL A SAFE AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS !

Share your love with family and friends, remember, not
everyone has someone to share Christmas with so wish some
lonely person a Happy Christmas in the street or at the checkout.
You have no idea how much that can mean.

Time for TODAY'S FLOWERS :

this just opened poppy caught my eye all crinkled still from
it's cocoon, with stripes painted
on it's petals.


Roses against the light, romance personified . . .



It is worth enlarging them, especially the poppy.

Pick your best flowers and send a bunch to TODAY'S FLOWERS so
everyone can enjoy them !

  19. What luminous flowers you took pictures of! The poppy looks emitting light on its own. Together with the delicate soft pink color, it is one of the loveliest photos of a flower to me.

    Thank you for your comment on my latest post. I was so touched to read it.

    Wish you a peaceful Christmas and a happy New Year.
