Ben over at the daily post has chosen ‘Graceful’ for this weeks photo challenge, this is what he said.
Gracefulness is a tricky quality — it manifests itself as an effortless, subtle harmony between a subject and its environment.
Personally, there are few things I find more graceful than spring flowers. During the dark months of winter, I long for little signs that they are beginning to emerge from the earth, or burst from seemingly dead twigs. It makes my heart sing when I spot new growth.
Of course there are always the hellebores, generous and voluptuous as they parade in the shade.
Some tilt their heads to any flash of sun they can, while others, more shy, make you bow down to greet them.
A little later, the wonderfully graceful Acers arrive at the ball, stylishly clothed in tropical pink and lime green, effortlessly attracting attention.
Tulips are so cheerful and bold, this one looks excited, like it’s waving it’s arms to the world, shouting ‘look at me, look at me, I’m doing my spring dance!’
Anyone who knows me would guess that this last pic, of the first flower of the year isng flower my favourite. Faithfully, every January the snowdrops reappear like little virgins in tutus, surely the most graceful of all!
