My flower of the day is the Namakwagousblom of Arctotis fastuosa . I took these photos in 2013 on a “Flower and Sanparks Roadtrip”. My parents and I planned about a year for this trip and I am very happy I could drive them. They enjoyed it and so did I. I love spending time with my parents.
Over the past few months I have been very emotional and miss my mother extremely. Dad has also not been himself since end of May and he is just getting worst. I am trying my best to stay positive and send out positive vibes out in the universe, but some days like today I just want to curl up and cry. Then I go through my archives and remember the good days and that seems to help a little.
I would like to thank each and everyone for taking the time to read, like and comment on my posts. I do not always answer your comments immediately but I do eventually get to it.
Over the weekend my fiance and I went on a work road-trip. He worked and I took photos. Practicing my new skills learned from the photography course I am busy with.
On our way back we stopped for some photos and I captured these beauties for the first time. I have taken thousands of flower photos over the years and never did I captured them. I saw them and thought it was just another daisy bush.
From a very young age I was exposed to Hydrangeas. My grandmother had the most beautiful Blue/Purple ones in her garden. Her pink ones was huge. I can remember a photo on my grandmothers nightstand with me next to it. I looked like a fairy under the big bloom. I wish I could get hold of it. I was about 18 months when it was taken.
While visiting Scotland I fell in love with these beauties all over again and when I got back from our tour I bought myself a plant at the nursery. It lost all it’s leaves though…. I just hope it stays alive during this cold winter. Yesterday I saw new leaves coming out. So I am trying to keep positive.
Thank you Cee for giving me the opportunity to post my Hydrangea photo’s again.
