Flowers

Doreen has provided the words that go with this topic – “I like what Henry Ward Beecher had to say about flowers. Think about it, do they have expressions? Do they emit a feeling? Challenge for our shooters for this theme .....
show us a flower expression, a flower thought, feeling, attitude, mood and emotion”

First up, a virginal expression:

white dahlia
a flower thought:  “How long do we have to stand on parade like this?”

 a feeling:  “Ouch, that hurt, something’s been eating me!”

“Attitude?  I’ll show you attitude!”

 A Singing in the Rain mood

 an emotion:  “Sad I’m not a flower.  But happy all the same!”

berries

Geez, and here was me thinking I just had to find a few half decent flower shots.

All the above, except for the rose, were found in my garden.

Can't wait to see what the rest of the team have come up with this week.  I'll go here to find out.

  1. Hello Pauline,

    That passion fruit flower is just so stunning.
    It is raining here today and I have just lit the fire for the first time this year.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I was going to ask what that fringy flower is, but I guess the answer was in Bev's comment :) Great spread of attitudes here - I didn't bother about that part...

  3. I like the flower shots, Pauline, but the captions are just so appropriate and funny. Now that I've stopped laughing I can go and have some breakfast. Your Friday may be almost over but mine is just starting.

  5. Pauline this was so entertaining. I forgot to add the feeling or emotions each flower emits. You did a great job.

  16. I am having such problems with internet... now in Rio as well as Friburgo. am starting to think it is my computer.... drat, double drat.

  17. Thanks, everyone, for the comments.
    Jama, the flowers in the second shot are lavendar. Mine is a big, sprawling, old fashioned plant with a lovely smell. Lavendar grows readily in NZ and is also grown commercially for its physical and emotional relief properties. There is even a growers association. Me, I just like the look and smell of it.
    And yes, I believe the coprosma berries are edible but they don't taste very nice although the birds love them.
