Humble Beginnings by mbrutus

Humble Beginnings

Whenever I need a change of scenery, some conspicuous blooms, and a lovely dinner, I like to head off to my darling sister-in-law's house, which is just what we did over the long holiday weekend just past. The company was divine, the blooms (as pictured) exquisite, and the dinner... barbecue chicken and ribs. Mission accomplished on all fronts. The occasion had me feeling so mellow and carefree, I could not even bring myself to tell Poppo Livy to "Go to bed!"
Beautiful.

Lovely colours - strong in the foreground and muted in the background.

Oh the focus in this is wonderful. What gorgeous flowers. Indeed, Poppo has surely had a hard time knowing when to go to bed lately, without your guidance!

This is quite spectacular, and very painterly. The colors are fabulous and the repetition going into the background really draws me in. Love it! fav

Beautifiul. The yellow one looks so fragile almost crepe paper-like.

Love the color and detail. Shallow DOF makes the blossom pop.

@louannwarren Glad you like the photo. Kudos for the flower go to their creator AND my sister-in-law. As to Poppo Livy, he has not been around that I know of since I got back. I believe he is travelling. Lord only knows how he is managing his bedtimes absent my counseling.

@stefneyhart Thanks for your lovely comment and fav. Wow..."painterly"... You are being too kind with your compliments, but please don't take that as a complaint. It is quite the opposite. Thank you.
