Cee’s Fun Challenge for this week wants images of a single flower. This was one that emerged from a scattering of mixed wild flowers that we sowed in our garden last year.

For week 11 of the Smartphone Challenge hosted by Khürt, we’re invited to fill the frame with a single colour.
Spring seems to have come earlier than usual this year and there are plenty of the usual harbingers already in evidence – like this narcissus.

Although this winter has been very mild (so far at least), it’s still too early to say that Spring has arrived, so here is a bud emerging from the soil in years gone by

Last year, we (which is to say Madame) sowed a selection of wild flowers in a couple of raised beds in our garden. This year we have a colourful swathe of bright orange poppies, which have obviously self-seeded.
Monochrome, however, helps to bring out the detail of the heart of the flower.

Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Growth’, so flowers seems like a logical place to go to find an appropriate image, notwithstanding that I posted a picture of some roses last time.
I saw this tightly packed group of lily buds in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney a few years ago. There’s plenty of potential growth here and perhaps the tight crop lifts the shot a little out of the ordinary.

Frank’s chosen the topic of ‘Rose’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge. I have no shortage of images of roses in my library, so the only problem was selecting one previously unposted. I think this fits the bill. It’s a French rose called ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ and I saw it last year at the annual festival of roses at Doué-La-Fontaine
