My flower


As you know I don’t do any challenges or daily writings, but I do enjoy looking at the photo challenges.

I received a lovely bunch of lilies from a grateful parent and they opened up so beautifully.

I had to share those beautiful photos I took with my phone.

Here is pure simple beauty!


And my personal favourite:


“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.” – Confucius

“Beauty is but a lease from nature.” – Edward Counsel

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”  Anne Frank

“There is beauty, heartbreaking beauty, everywhere.” Edward Abbey

See the beauty around you,

take a break,

enjoy it to the full!

Wishing you a beautiful, beautiful day!

  2. Oh wow! These are absolutely stunning shots Ute and you’ve captured their colour so well! I love lilies and the last shot is absolutely my favourite but only because I am partial to close-ups and macros more… 😀
    Thanks for sharing hon and have a great weekend. *big hugs*

    • Thank you so much, it means a lot to me that you like them. I have never had lillies and I couldn’t believe that they all opened up so lovely. AS you know I am not aphotographer I just take pictures for fun and from things I like. I have to say I am very pleased with these shots.
      Wishing you a great day and big hugs back to you!

      • You are very welcome hon and I meant every word of it. You don’t have to be a professional to take great photo’s and you surely have the ‘eye’ for it. I would love to see more. 😀
        Wishing you a great day and weekend too hon. *big hugs*

  3. Absolutely beautiful photos, Ute!! How wonderful that someone showed their appreciation to you. That always feels so great! I am sure it was deserved. Big hugs, Sweetie!

    • I agree, we do have some very appreciative and lovely parents and that is the great thing about my work, I can help them, and it is a joy!
      I am quite proud how good they came out!
      Thanks Skye

  4. I don’t think I have ever seen a flower that was “ugly” – Nature creates so much beauty all around us, all we need to do is notice, pay attention, and appreciate. Und ich sehe dass du zumindest zweisprachig bist….:-)
