It isn’t always about what is received, but when the gift is thoughtful, it makes is special.
With all the different ways you can compose an image, this week we were to compose an image using leading lines. The bench is the perfect base for the bold color of the flower and draws you in.
This was a challenge that I have been looking forward to. The springtime is upon us so I dusted off my extension tubes and headed out to one of the first of the season. Sweet surprise.

In the springtime, the sun flows over the land, slowly warming nature. The vines start to grow and reach towards the warmth. Each petal encapsulating as much as they can. Then they burst. Glorious.
CLEMATIS ~Mixed Colors~ Wonderful large blooms 20+ Perennial Vine Seeds
The petals weaken under the drops of rain that have found their way into the folds. At any moment, the drop could fall, making way for the petals to relax some until the next rainfall. The color bright and new, even though it is autumn. Beautiful.
The sun is setting and the garden begins to sleep. The flowers close for the night but some seem to hesitate. Still basking in the warm evening air. As if it was morning. Glorious.

As the season comes to a close, the last of the clematis bloom, stretching its petals wide open to show the beautiful pistils within. Each with its own personality, they all spread out so the stigma can get full sun. Truly breathtaking.

The evening sun is warm on the petals, making them stretch to expose the majority of them. The light shines through giving way to the shear beauty of each petal. Innocently, splendid.
