don't mind me

Don't mind me; I'm just quietly posting a few flowers for Jane's global flower presentation.

[heather and yellow rose in bathroom, seven points]

This one below is an old image, but Jane won't realise that. It was only when I started clicking round the other participants in the global flower presentation that I spotted that some of the rotters had more than one flower arrangement. I panicked, of course, and shot back through my archives to put on some sort of a decent showing.


[small daffodils in the Miss J. Hunter Dunn memorial egg-cup, nine points]

Sixteen points in all; not bad, eh? It's not that there's a prize; it's a matter of Self-Respect.

  4. Ah but Denise, your entry showed Depth. I'd be all in favour of plenty of points for Depth were I not a fellow competitor. Indeed, were there a competition.

  5. If there were a competition for making me laugh out loud you'd be the blue ribbon winner.

    42 points for beauty and wit. Oh, and your flowers are nice too:)

    xo Jane

  10. You mean you have old daffodils? Yet they look so fresh ;-) My you do have talent Miss Mise. I nearly added my own photos of fresh marigold garlands in India. However, once I enlarged the photo a little I saw that they weren't half as alive looking as your old daffodils. So I slipped back into my admiration of you and resolutely refuse to put any flower photos up at all. Besides, it is raining on the daisies on my lawn :(

  11. I didn't realise it was a competitive sport. Maybe I should win the Ugliest Roses section.....

  16. I LOVE it when people become highly competitive over the posting of small lovely flower arrangements. Rotters indeed.

  17. Hooray for spring yellows! I like the rose especially. Even the fact that it's slightly out of focus (in deference to the native heather) gives it a shimmering quality.

  20. Surely there are points awarded in the 'utilitarian flower arrangement' category - and that should put you right over the top.

  21. I'm not sure i quite understand what's going on here... is it like some kind of "Blog in Bloom" award? Excellent entry anyway.
