Flowers Up Close

I was reading a great post over at Heroes Not Zombies the other day there about texture, at the end of which Bob asks “What catches your attention on an everyday basis?” For me the answer is colour; I love just love bright colours, especially when I find them in nature. Yesterday, I was around at my grandparents’ house, and spent a lovely afternoon taking photographs of some of the spectacular jewel-coloured flowers. In Grandad’s garden the begonias are really quite spectacular, the chrysanthemums are just beginning to unfurl their peachy petals and the gazanias’ amber and saffron petals are reflecting back the sun’s rays . Here’s a collection of some of the photos I took:
