Botanical Beauty

botanical-beauty-final

Finally….Botanical Beauty (2016) was my entry into our GARDEN art exhibition recently held. It was printed on linen (although I also have a copy printed on archive quality fine art photography paper too) and it looks amazing! I was so happy with it after a nervous start when I realised the original photo was taken on my phone and not my trusty canon!

It’s such a great feeling when an image comes together just as you imagined in your head.

A vision of pink….

Roses from garden today….pink and violet and gorgeous..what a lovely sight to see….


Sorry is the hardest word.

sorry

Why is it so dam’n hard to say I am sorry? It is such a short little sentence.

It shouldn’t be so hard…. Especially to say to those we love. Yet it seems hardest then.

Maybe the roses, greenery and rosemary picked from our garden, tied in a bow and left for them to find, will help me to say the three hardest words to say…I am sorry.

 


The romance of roses…is it dead?

red roses

As you know, I love roses. I love them even when they are dying, like these ones. There is something beautiful, yet slightly macabre about gorgeous red roses in their final stages of bloom.

Maybe it’s a cliché but roses really are like a metaphor for love in real life….first, the precious rose-bud like the thrill of new romantic love, then there is the full blown blooming gorgeousness of long-life-together-kind-of-love represented by roses in full bloom. Then, finally the graceful and bitter-sweet love found in appreciating something and thinking it beautiful through its final stages of life, while decaying and dying…somehow fragile yet still achingly beautiful. I am sure a poet wrote about it….


The romance of flowers

bouquet

Roses, berries, leaves, trailing things – my most favourite bouquet of flowers – a bit wild, very romantic and quite “messy”…..  perfect in my eyes! This bouquet was beautifully crafted just for me…how lucky I was!

It was so pretty, romantic and gorgeous that I just had to share it with you. Sadly all I have left are three dried roses and some photographs now.
