Friday flowers

February 10, 2012

Just because….we all need flowers to brighten our lives sometimes, and these joyous, gaudy anemones have been doing the job for me this week. Hope you like anemones too.






You might also need an antidote to grey.

    Gorgeous, DB! Just what I needed after coming home through snow on this cold evening. Anemones and freesias are some of my favourite spirit-lifters. 🙂

    This post brought out the bee in me! Thanks for a lovely reminder that it won’t always be -18 Celsius. 🙂

      Eech, -18 is not funny! Spring is coming, I promise…

    Just a gorgeous preview of spring.

    Very pretty – thanks for sharing your anemones 🙂

    These are lovely (I especially like the overexposed shots)
    Today (overnight) we are having more snow than we have had all winter, so your flowers are especially welcome!

    Goodness, what a relief to see such colourful flowers, thank you.

    Oh, these are so nice! The window ledge over here is a riot of grape hyacinths and tulips at the moment…. I know just what you mean about needing flowers to pick you up at this time of year!

    Thank you for all your comments. I’m really glad that you like them too. I think we all need a shock of colour at this ‘driech end’ of the year.

    Violet Sky, I was tempted to overexpose them even more, as the contrast between the white background and the flowers was very pleasing. As a rule, though, I don’t like to muck about with my shots too much. What you see is what it is. 🙂

    I have never really cared for anemones but my goodness, have you changed my mind for me–what a wonderful lift to the spirits.

      I’m glad I’ve changed your mind! They really are like colour therapy, especially at this colourless time of year.

    The still life in a window is a delight. Winter sunlight may be weak, but what a pleasure to see it making the petals glow.

      Hello, Margaret. Yes, I really love the low winter light, and the way it spotlights unexpected details as it moves around the room. It’s much more interesting than summer sunshine, even if there isn’t as much of it!

    I do like – love – anemones, especially these colours. Thank you for posting these photos. 🙂
