It is very rare that I do monochrome images of flowers; a) because I think they look better in colour than monochrome, or b) they don’t have the structure and depth to make a monochrome flower to pop.
Knowing my father used to take such pride in his dahlias… has made me see them in a whole new light. When I was younger, oh so many moons ago, I wouldn’t go near them because the of the earwigs that they attracted.
Today, I’m delighted to introduce you to the flower of the day, a gorgeous picture a of dahlia that I took back in fall 2022! I hope you love it as much as I do.
I just adore the happy, riotous colours of these blooms, from sunny yellows to fiery reds and oranges. The layered petals and frilly centres of the dahlia remind me of a peacock’s plume. There’s also something so dreamy and romantic about them- they’re just so utterly beautiful!
I’m so thankful that I have been blessed with the opportunity to share my love of nature – and especially flowers – with others through my photographs. Sharing this little moment of joy here with you is one of my greatest pleasures.
Here’s a toast to all things cheery and bright- and a reminder to take the time to scent the flowers and see the beauty around us every day! 🍻
Happy Spring everyone! Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!
