Today's Flowers: Winter flowers - Dried and frozen

I put dried flowers in front of the fireplace but decided they might get too dry so didn't leave them there long after I lit the fire.

The camellia blossom was frozen one night and soon dropped off but I was taken by how the center retained its color.

I really believe that there are things that nobody would see,
if I didn't photograph them.

Fantastic rose, I love how the colors change from the center to outside. It seems to glow. Great job!


...Take a look at Assymetrical flowers!

Love the photo of the dried flowers in front of the fireplace. Last year, the buds on one of my camellias froze but stayed red. Have a happy New Year!
