You would think that coming up with something for Shutterboo’s subject of “simple” would be…well…simple. Trust me it was not simple. But I had just planted Gerber Daisies and Dahlias for the year (and a geranium in memory of my Granny) and decided they would work. I think of daisies as being simple yet beautiful and so, wah-la – photo subject found.
Flowers are truly one of nature’s simple beauties. I like them fresh from the garden, especially my own garden. Too bad I hate gardening. Well not gardening in general, I just hate weeding. I blame it on all those weeds I had to pull in the vegetable garden growing up.
I once had a beautiful flower bed where I live but when the yard was cut, the grass cuttings kept blowing into the flower bed and making the weeds grow like crazy. I finally gave up. Potted flowers on the porch are much less trouble and just as beautiful.
I decided to try them in black and white to continue the “simple” theme for this week.
I like the black and white pictures but there is just something about the vibrant color of the pink dahlia that I just love. So this is my submission for this weeks photo challenge. Hope you like it. I’m actually thinking about printing and framing it to hang in my scrapbook area.
