I recently left my job and as a parting gift my old work colleagues gave me a card with some lovely messages, a gift card to buy something nice with and these beautiful lilies. I managed to get them home on the tube in one piece (although I did poke a few people with the long stems), and they’re now sitting on the kitchen table brightening up the room.
This is a close up of one of the tulips I bought my mum recently. I love how the petals took on a rainbow of colours as they opened. It makes me think perhaps someone has brushed on strokes of watercolour paint to create this beautiful effect.
The detailed centre of this flower in contrast to the simplistic shape of the it’s petals makes for an interesting image. I also like the colour contrast of the vivid pink with bright yellow pollen that is scattered all over which also draws your eye
