Pink Rose

The plant kingdom is an obvious source of colourful monotones for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, as demonstrated by this vibrant pink rose.

Consider The Lily

For this week’s ‘Fun Foto’ Challenege, Cee is looking for a macro or close-up image. Well, here is a look into the heart of a flowering lily. Be sure to keep that pollen off your clothes, because you’ll never get it off.

A Cold And Frosty Morning

Appropriately enough for the time of year (in the northern hemisphere, at any rate), Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge theme this week is ‘cold’.

After the temperature dips overnight in the absence of any cloud cover, the bay leaves on our laurel bushes are tipped with frost.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Backyard

Not in my backyard…but in my mother’s.

The almost translucent heads of these three stray poppies, sneaking under the fence from next door, stood out really well against the wooden fence. My new(ish) iPhone captured them pretty sharply, I think.

Weekly Photo Challenge: All-Time Favo(u)rites

Although there are plenty of other photo challenges out there, generously hosted by individual bloggers, the end of the WordPress Weekly Challenge – for reasons best known to themselves and, I suspect, a mystery to most of the rest of us – does feel like the end of an era.

For this final instalment, we’ve been invited to share our all-time favourites (I cannot bring myself to omit the ‘u’ that actually belongs there).

It’s hard to choose, though. The most-liked – by others – of my images are displayed on the home page of this blog in any case.

However, my very first post on this blog, back in August 2013, was a response to a WordPress Weekly Challenge. This is another edit of that image:

Surely, though, while retrospection has its place it’s better to look forward, so I’ll leave you – in terms of this challenge, at any rate – with another flower, but one with it’s – albeit brief – life ahead of it. The picture was taken just a couple of weeks ago.

Wild Flower Monochrome

It’s that time again…

Cee’s Black & White Challenge Theme this week is ‘flowers’, so here is an example from a mix of bee-friendly wild flowers that we sowed last year in one of our raised beds. In real life, it was an attractive shade of magenta, but the monochrome highlights the textures.
