|We don't spend money on flowers, but when we find them...|
I can certainly build my entire beach walk around them! Imagine my delight when I found a slightly battered rose tangled in the seaweed along the high water mark today! And even more delightful, I found a second rose! Of course this becomes my subject-du-jour!
I was a little puzzled about why there would be semi-fresh flowers tossed up onto the beach, with nobody around to have put them there. My mind came up with all sorts of scenarios, none of which were happy ones.
Maybe some guy took his best girl out for a boat ride and proposed marriage... and she said no. So the flowers went into the bay!
Maybe they were part of a Burial-At-Sea Ceremony...
Whatever the reason they're here, they gave me some of the best fun I've had in a while
Catching the melancholy beauty in the contrast between delicate flowers, and the wild and dirty beach, made for some really great photos!
As we walked along, we found a small bunch of something else that must have been part of a bouquet. Add that to the very nice sand dollars we picked up, and without even noticing how winded I was, we were suddenly at our resting spot!
I took dozens of shots, and some were obvious favorites... Others I couldn't really decide which I liked the best. So I just post them all! You decide!
|On our way back home, I think I got the outstanding favorite for the day! THIS one!|
|This is another of my personal favorites... although...|
|THIS one was the Facebook Fan Favorite!|
