Focus On Life Week 7/52 – Beauty Of Flowers

This year I am taking part in a photo journal challenge set up by the lovely Sally Russick of Studio Sublime
who, in addition to creating beautiful jewellery is a talented
photographer. Each week Sally sends participants a word prompt and the
following Saturday we all post our photo interpretations on our blogs,
Flickr or Instagram

Our  task from Sally this week was to take in the beauty of flowers which in the UK in February is not as simple as you might think if you prefer them in their natural habitats as I do. At first glance there were no signs of any flowers in my garden and I just haven’t had the chance to get out to anywhere else to find some this week. But it’s a beautiful morning here and I ventured out into the garden with my first cuppa of the day and noticed one of my favourite flowers, the Lenten Rose (Hellebore Orientalis) hiding shyly behind another shrub. 

Now, a beautiful morning it might be but the ground is covered it wet rotting leaves and, since the blooms of this little treasure hang down I was only going to get a picture by getting down with it. Not finding this totally appealing first thing in the morning I was pondering the situation when I noticed one bloom flat on the ground and on closer inspection saw the stem was broken – probably the victim of a game of cat and mouse. These are not flowers I would normally pick but this seemed somewhat fortuitous so here is my picture – not in situ as I would have preferred but still damp with dew…

I love this unassuming plant…it’s not bold or showy but has it’s own quiet beauty and a strength to withstand the harshest of conditions. Not bad attributes in my book.

Pop over to sally’s blog to see what the other participants have been snapping this week.

Have a great weekend all.
