Mums, Gerberas and Baby’s Breath

A life update is required, it’s been so long and so much has happened, but today instead I want to share with you some macro magic with flowers because I’ve missed doing this so much.

I put together this bouquet for the new years holidays, it’s pink and pretty and I wanted some flowers to photograph.

And of course Miss Gidget was with me the whole time, even if she wasn’t very amused at being ignored in favour of flowers again!

PS here is an iPhone shot of the complete bouquet. I thought it was pretty cute.

  2. Love the flowers in all their manifestations. Especially since today is forecast to hit -17ยฐ! I’m particularly in awe of the matching base for the complete bouquet, which is indeed a beauty. I’m glad you showed us the wood as well as the trees.

      Wow -17! It’s 37 here! Shocker. Oh yes that table doily thing. It’s brilliant isn’t it? I got it at a linen party years ago. I haven’t ever been able to find anything else like it. It adds a wonderful pop of colour (handily pink) to my room.

    Ahhhh, I have SO missed your floral offerings DJ. Love the first image, so beautiful. And I must ask you, though I am sure you must have said somewhere before, what breed is Miss G? She is such a sweetie.

      Ah thanks so much Jude. That’s so lovely to hear. GG is a Maltese x Lhasa Apso. I know I’m biased but she really is the sweetest little chicky. I love her so much.
