Been having some fun a while ago with some flowers, faded and not, and seedpods
I gathered from the containergarden and arranging them on the table.
It's something new to me because I usually photograph flowers as they are
on the shrub or plant but this time I decided to take it a step further and try to
do a bit of, well, I guess you could call it styling, still in its babyshoes though ;)
This is what I gathered. All from my containers, except for the lovely Maid-in-the-mist
seedpods which I noticed in the garden, hiding, I never saw them bloom.
The, although not too big, Dahlia(you can read more about its larger sisters in a previous post ;) )
and the Rose were quickly ommited from the whole thing. They didn't work well to style with.
Too big afterall. I also tore the faded Hydrangea flowers apart and only used some of the petals.
This was a first attempt.
But then the wind wanted to have its say in it and you know what,
I liked it! So this was what I ended up with.
Amazing how little is needed to make a pretty picture, or isn't it?
But hey, I wanted to use both Rose and Dahlia in the composition as well,
which led to this "wreath decorated" ;)
I know, a bit much maybe
but I didn't mind, still loved it.
Guess this could be my entry for GGBD September at once.
So what's blooming or has faded into something beautiful in your garden in September?
Have a lovely week everyone!
