Window Dressing #4 Todays Flowers

This week I picked some unamed Roses 
and the easy to grow Buddleja which have decided to rebloom

Now our weather has been so strange this year -
torrential rain storms some weeks - dry heatwave conditions other weeks
its a wonder anything has grown let alone flower again lol

So I tried photographing them this way - but the vases didn't look right
The colours look too dark yet the camera flash 'said' there was enough light'
Trouble is if I 'alter' them they take on a very pale look
so here they are 'as is'
  Tried the vases this way - still don't look right
Maybe the stems are too long ? 
Anyway my smiling curly tailed friend is happy with his new equally rotund friends 
Did you know
Most flowers are lavender or purple, but they can vary in colour from white to pink to mauve.
The name Buddleia commemorates a botanist Adam Buddle,
 an early 18th century clergyman born in Lincolnshire.

  1. The roses are beautiful. It seems strange seeing your roses growing while we're in the middle of our winter. We've had such a mild winter though, I wouldn't be surprised to see my own growing. Yours are just lovely!

  2. Cathy, I used to collect cats and I gave them all to my grandson years ago. Now I have boxes of cows and only keep a few favourites out. I think I might have to pass these on soon now that I've decluttered my home. Your window sill is always so pretty ...a lovely way to welcome the day. Maa

  8. I like the arrangement in the taller vase! It looks so airy, yet delicate! I wonder if you took the vase back outside for its photo shoot?
