'Joiks', I though.
I have no flowers to post . . .
grab camera, rush out into the dark with torch
A flower I had noticed on a seedling geranium a few days ago.
Dah, when you shine the torch on the flower, you can't see
what setting the camera in on, ups . . .
soft focus by torchlight.
Madly winding fading torch and clinging on to camera,
my piece de resistance, a flower engulfed by grass.
Yep, not only has my weeding not been done,
it hasn't even been started
here is the little darling in all it's moth eaten glory
and, the only other thing apart from my white rose that is in
flower, ONE shy but perfumed violet.
With Lille Abner's grandma I say "when you got 'em, flaunt 'em!"
When you don't have much, it's best to enjoy what you DO have.
They are so delicate and beautiful but somehow you catch my eyes with your 1st picture. Really nice !ReplyDelete
Fantastic weekend !
Leises Frühlingserwachen, sehr schön liebe Arija...ReplyDelete
Umaemung und Grüsse aus der Schweiz
HI Arija...It is always great to start the day with a good belly laugh, and that you provided!!ReplyDelete
I must say very creative and quite artistic perhaps you have found a new niche in photography!! ; )
Love this post!! I like Little Abner's grandma's saying ..to cute!!
Glad I am not the only one with an unweeded garden!! : )
I love geraniums. I'm glad it bloomed for you.ReplyDelete
the first night shot made me smile!ReplyDelete
I'd settle for the violet, which I am surprised you have blooming in the Fall. In Oregon they bloom in early spring and thus I always miss them (no shy sweet flowers in Florida or at least I can't find any).ReplyDelete
There's always something special about any flowers that just 'hang on' as summer winds down.
(I miss Lil' Abner! The funnies aren't as good nowadays ;>)
The violets are only starting to flower because we had some autumn rain. Nature tends to get confused when the summer extends to winter and doesn't give us any rain. A lot of plants are thinking it is spring, including some birds.Delete
You went above and beyond to share these loveliesReplyDelete
Arija. Thank you for going out at night to share these lovely photos with us.
Beautiful close up photos. I love to see tiny flowers centered and large.ReplyDelete
Pretty little flowers - I have some new ones to post soon.ReplyDelete
Considering the time of year you're lucky to have any flowers left. Love violets.ReplyDelete
Love how you managed to take a picture in the glare of the torchlight, and it turned out to be an interesting image, after all!ReplyDelete
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday, Arija!
Even a little flower is showing it's beauty.I love these pictures.ReplyDelete
How pretty to see that little jewel of colour by torchlight .... and a solitary shrinking violet ... another joy to behold.ReplyDelete
The roses here are finished, but our geraniums and violets are going strong. And the tree dahlias.ReplyDelete
I loved this - thank you.
I do like that first image.ReplyDelete
Your comment on my blog stopped me dead in my tracks - maybe I need to organise a trip to the Grampians to say hello and hear the full story.
I like how you tell us your little stories of photo hunting. Lovely blooms.ReplyDelete
Violets and geraniums Arija - two of my favourite flowersReplyDelete
lovely to see your sweet flowers~ReplyDelete
thank you for your messages on SH, they read as poetry to me and my heart ~
Thank you for capturing theses beauties for us to enjoy, my favorite is the tiny violet. Thank you also for visiting us at pret-a-vivre.com and I agree with Indrani, I love how you told the story :).ReplyDelete
We have a weekly linky party and would love to have you come and share the fun:
Have a great week ahead,
Gorgeous geranium and violet. I don't know what it is about violets...they are so old-fashioned and so small and perfect. Just love them!ReplyDelete
Hehehe, your nighttime photo adventure had me chuckling. I must say, though, that is my favorite color for geraniums. Cute little blooms!ReplyDelete
