This week’s flowers

I haven’t shown you a photo of the flowers recently, mostly because I forgot.  But in the intervening weeks I’ve had more red roses, and pink and yellow lillies.  Here are this week’s white gerberas.

And here’s how to blow out the white balance in your white gerberas.

Painful, isn’t it?

Side note: see how the stems are wired and the top of the wires pokes out from some of the flowers?  The first time I saw that, I was like “holy crap, my flowers have HORNS”, until I realised what it was.  You shouldn’t let me near any sharp objects.

Second note: I’m sorry nobody loved my photos of the mushrooms below.  I thought they were pretty cool!

    I love Gerbras, almost worth moving to Aussie for. It has been so damp lately, that I am sure all we are groing here are mushrooms. Your pictures are great!!

    Very beautiful! I ♥ Red Gerberas. Maybe you should try them. Because I don’t think there is Red Balance Blow Out. 😛

    Very cool. So what’s the secret to toning down the white? 🙂
    I”m just getting caught up. The mushroom pix were cute, but I’m anti-mushroom as a rule. 🙂
