ROUND ROBIN PHOTO CHALLENGE: Flower Power

Cyber-chromatic Quilt:  Wild Flowers




I inherited my love for flowers from my parents.  Unfortunately I did not inherit their green thumbs and must be content with enjoying flowers in other peoples gardens.  These wild flowers were photographed with in the past few weeks during my many journeys to nearby ponds and meadows.  I would however like to point out that the beautiful dandelion at the end of my collect is one of my rare successes from my own garden.

Great quilt Dorn!  WE girls certainly have a rare talent for growing these hard to grow Brillilante Yellow Dandelions!  I was most successful this year also, so much so, that they overflowed into the fields behind!  I am an out of control gardener, go figure!  Loved  your original entry sis.

Hi Dorn :)

I love how you presented your photos. The flowers are stunning! When the page first opened, my eyes just danced and danced! Fabulous my dear!

Always, Carly :)

Dorn, these shots are great.  I wish I knew more about flowers and plants in general.  I've only recently learned to appreciate the beauty in them.  I guess its all about baby steps huh?

Ooh! Look at all the colors and shapes!  I really like the way you've photographed and arranged them here, so that the eye can't help but pick out both the similarities and the contrasts.  Well done! - Karen
