Temporary?

Sunflowers
Flowers may be short-lived, but their beauty is everlasting.

Satisfaction

Gerbera
The satisfaction of a happy photoshoot with a cooperating model… Aren’t flowers wonderful subjects? ๐Ÿ™‚

A collage of sceneries

Tulips everywhere
Patch after patch of vivid colors are a feast to the eyes. If you peel your eyes away from this wondrous view, the faraway mountains and dreary sky paint a contrasting picture. And in between the two, the people, the buildings and the trees.

A collage of sceneries!

Red

Light and Translucency
A lovely flower causes eye-catching play of light and shadow without even realizing it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it’s the red that makes the effect striking.

Blooms on blue

Blooms on blue
I own a top in a beautiful blue color, with small white flowers and leaves embroidered on it. I’ve always loved this top, but it’s only when I clicked a macro of it for this SL-Week theme (Blue) that I noticed that the fabric’s texture looks very much like knitting! Macros just show so much more of the world, don’t they — all the stuff that we never usually notice. Because I too knit, my love for the top has now doubled. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The title ‘Blooms on a bed of blue’ passed through my mind for this post, but that’d be way too much alliteration, right? ๐Ÿ˜›
