Sunday Picture Post: One Year Past

I haven’t been able to get out to snap up fresh flowers… and it looks like I shan’t be able to for quite a few weeks. So I’m drawing upon my stores from previous years.

I have close up shots of this plant, and in massive flower. But I liked the way last year’s bracken forms a frame for this delicate specimen. And the distance adds a certain quality… I’ll leave you to name it.

    Yes! My first thought on your first image was that nature provided a frame for these lovelies.

    Your photos reminded me that today I was sitting in my back yard with a good friend, one point five metres apart, and remarking how in the past month our landscape has changed from the deadness of drought to the overwhelming greenery we now see. Nature is truly amazing how it can regenerate from near-death to an abundance.
