a little bit of awesome



We spent the day with my parents on Saturday.  My Dad said, "You really love photographing flowers, don't you?"  I hadn't thought much about it, but he is exactly right.  I do. And, I love that he noticed.  Doesn't it make you feel loved when people notice things about you?


My Dad's is right, I do love photographing flowers.  The problem is, I don't love gardening.  I hate being on the ground - achy knees.  I don't like the dirt under my nails or on my hands.   And, I hate the worms.  So.  What's a girl to do?  Affordable supermarket flowers aren't usually pretty enough for the pictures I want to take.  Local florists are wildly expensive and don't have much variety.


Enter my newest fave:


The Bouqs Company is absolutely amazing!  The flowers are grown on the side of a volcano - really.  They ship quickly and the customer service is amazing. As you can see, the flowers are stunning.  I am not a florist and have no fancy tricks or vases.  The flowers are just that gorgeous.  Look how beautiful the ranunculus and larkspur are.  I think the price is very reasonable for the quality you get.  Whether you are treating yourself or a friend, I think you would love the Bouqs. I know I do.

These really are beautiful flowers, Relyn, and your photographs of them are wonderful.

Beautiful flowers and you immortalise their fragile beauty so well Relyn! I think it was the painter Winifred Nicholson who said (quoting someone else perhaps?) that the secret to the cosmos could be seen in a flower. She painted a lot of flowers.

I would not have thought of ordering flowers online. What a treat. I usually buy what is on special at the market throughout the winter. Taking a photography class right now and hearing what is our trademark photos to take. I would say your dad nailed it.

Will definitely look in to the Bouqs. I love treating myself to flowers, and this looks like a perfect way to do it. Thanks so much for sharing.

Oldies, but Goodies
