Pink Charming

You know how it is when time flies by,
you're working on this and that,
you look up and it's
four o'clock in the afternoon.

I thought I'd missed the day.

Then a sunbeam came through the window
illuminating this geranium bouquet
on my kitchen counter.

It blew me away
with its pink charming-ness.

Its stem, a lime-green straw in a raspberry soda

Strawberries and cream

Love the fuzzy hairs shooting out in all directions

And this multi-layered taffetta skirt

Pure Innocence


and Sweet Perfection

I'm going to take a four o'clock
 sunbeam/flower break
more often :)


  1. dit is genieten van zoveel kleurige bloemen.

  2. This is a wonderful idea and the four o'clock sunbeam/flower break should be instituted worldwide!

  3. Excelente ideia absolver a vitamina que o só nos dá.

  4. Beautiful pictures of the flowers.
    Well photographed, Rosemary.
    This is enjoy!
    Regards, Irma

  5. Beautifully graphic, Rosemary!
    Looking at your lovely pics, it makes feel like a lollypop!!
    Cheers and keep well!

  6. Isn't it marvellous to see the wonderful details picked up by the macro lens - I didn't realise that geraniums buds had those downy soft hairs before they open, and what delightful pink blooms.

  7. You did it again Rosemary. These are gorgeous shots! Love them all.

  8. Macros always reveal the most amazing details which we are normally not aware of. Your photos are interesting.

  9. Stunning photos! I think anytime is a perfect time for a sunbeam/flower break! :-) Enjoy your weekend!!

  10. Wow, Rosemary! Outstanding photos! Bloglovin' is working well, I found your post through the e-mail they send me once per day with the latest posts of the blogs I follow. I still look at my dashboard, but it's nice to have both, just in case.

  11. Blessed sun rays. you took
    and made with digital art. hugs

  12. simply beautifully captured shots... lovely!

  13. Great image series you show of a beautiful geranium. Wish you a good week-end :) Hanne Bente

  14. Wonderful pictures Rosemary!
    Beautiful details!

    Have a nice day!

  15. ....and who can blame you LOL ! These close ups are amazing , wonderfully captured . xx

  16. Hi Rosemary.
    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. There is not a special trick to take a blurred photo, but I always try to adjust the "sunlight." I don't take a photos under the direct ray, but under the clouded sky. Plus, set f-number, 2.8 or so, then you can have back ground blurred while the flower stays in sharp focus. But your pictures are always awesome!! Love your photos, especially the second one from the bottom:)

  17. WOW!
    Fantastic and very beautiful pictures.
    Excellent color. I love that.
    Macro Photos - perfectly.
    I send greetings.

  18. Hi Rosemary, I don't think I have ever seen a geranium so up close before. I was surprised by all the little hairs and blown away by the beauty of the abstract pinkness. Charming indeed!

  19. oh que j'adore ce mouvement circulaire du 3éme cliché

  20. Gorgeous photos Rosemary and such wonderful light! A great way to unwind mid-afternoon.

  21. Loively flowers. Take a break, I'll be waiting for you to come back and enjoy the day.

  22. I had that happen yesterday in the garden. I had forgotten what time it was and the next thing I know it was 5!! Weird. I love the lighting at certain times of day. Seems you caught that right ray of light:)

  23. Rosemary, your pink images evoke red-hot passion. Lovely.

  24. Good afternoon, the flowers are beautiful which include sunflowers.

    Thanks for your visit in my photos.

    Turns to the Sun Life

    The sunflower, heliotrope as it is, is an unconditional follower of the sun. This is
    star of hope, a source of energy and force that awakens the necessary beauty
    to illuminate the gray side of life.
    Search your sun ... and be happy.

  25. Lovely photos Rosemary, especially the close-ups! It is important to have the camera handy and capture moments like these, before you know it they are gone, and our memories are never as accurate as the camera. I don't really feel I have experienced something properly and truly until I have taken a picture of it - but then me and my camera are attached at the hip :-)
    Have a great week, here's to some warmer weather for you!

  26. Oh my goodness, I love how you described them. It was so dreamy and charming. I clearly need to buy myself a vase of these ;)
