One of my favourite subjects to photograph is flowers and as the northern hemisphere gets set to burst into bloom I’m celebrating with a floral bouquet of blossomy photos.
Sitting in a friend’s garden in Seattle, I noticed a solitary rosebud gazing skywards as dappled sunlight cast leafy shadows on the walls.
There’s nothing quite like a burst of bright yellow daisies to chase the blues away.
I found these ones hiding out in Mesa Verde National Park.
I couldn’t resist taking a snap of this flashy, frilly streptocarpus on a tabletop in California.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – Anais Nin
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. – Marcel Proust
