One Word Sunday – Closed Petals

A photograph of one of the many flowers with closed up petals, photographed at The Salutation in Sandwich Kent.

I thought this image would be ideal for Debbie Smyth’s One Word Sunday Photography Challenge called Closed, as some of those petals are still closed and waiting for the right time to fully bloom.

    1. This was taken a few years back. I hope it hasn’t closed.


      Omg I’ve just googled and the hotel went bust… What a shake it was beautiful there.


      1. Yes, I had feared that was the case. I hope the wonderful garden and hotel have a secure future, in the near future.
