Weekly Photo Challenge: FLOWERS

When we were in Maine for last summer’s vacation, a hard cold rain didn’t let up for several days, and we spent a lot of time in the swapped house with our friends, reading, talking, eating, and dreaming of being outdoors with the flowers and the mountains and the sea.

We made do for flowers first with this sculpture that sat in the window, our kind of indoor-outdoor garden:

And then wistfully looking out the window down at these geraniums and their reflections on the dripping front deck:

Hey, you take your flowers where you find them!

    The flower sculpture is so pretty. Put me in mind of Ponyo’s little mermaid sisters. If you haven’t seen Ponyo, you haven’t lived. A children’s myth on DVD. You can see it Judy on my fb.

      I was really delighted when it appeared in the photo; I’d actually been after the brilliant red in that gray gray interminable rain!

        We were staying in a home exchange that our friends had arranged, to someone’s getaway house in Maine, and it was furnished sparsely but with lots of quirky touches. This was a stamped-out (pressed-out?) flat tin sculpture that was enameled? painted? (you can tell I’m not a very handy or crafty person) and then simply propped up in the window. A view of an inside garden, so to speak. I loved it.

        Oh, Julia! Writing this response just triggered a happy memory for me! We moved some five months ago to a much much smaller place, and in the process sold several paintings for which there would be no more walls. One of them was a big painting of flowers in a vase, modern folk in style (if I can call it that) which we’d bought in Savannah, Georgia and loved very much. Now that I remember it, the flowers were treated in JUST this style, and now the photograph becomes an aide-memoire — I loved the painting, and miss it.

  3. That sculpture is lovely. What was it made of?

  4. Nice sculpture. I love geraniums. Beautiful entries.

    I love the reflection of the flowers in the puddles; the contrast in colors and textures makes the flowers seem even more beautiful! 🙂
