Sweet Gardenia for my Mum

The Gardenia plant at our back door is steadily producing more blooms. I often take a look at them or just get a whiff of their sweet fragrance. I wanted to take a pic of one as tomorrow is my Mum’s first birthday since her death and they remind me of her and my grandfather. I think this is the best pic I’ve taken of one so far. Seems apt.

5 day Black and White Challenge

A Facebook friend just nominated me for a 5 day Black and White challenge. From my artist page stats it appears that black and white photos of flowers areĀ an acquired or particular taste as these tend to be my least popular. Unless I just still need to learn to take better black and white floral pics!

Breezy Morning in the Garden

It was a bit breezy in the garden this morning so not great conditions for floral photography outdoors but there were still some lovely blooms to snap.

Glorious Gardenias and Rambunctious Roses

The Gardenias in our garden are finally blooming. It’s not the happiest of plants as I think it’s struggling in the heat and low rainfall but I was pleased to see it had the energy to produce some blooms. The roses in comparison are blooming like crazy so had to take a few more photos of them.
