Weekly Photo Challenge: A Work of Art

This week, share a photo of something that’s art to you.

This particular photo has been given a watercolour ‘art’ effect. Enlarge for more detail and clarity.

Pulsatilla vulgaris

Pulsatilla vulgaris

The flowers bloom in early spring, which leads to the common name Pasque flower, since Pasque refers to Easter and Passover. Pasque flowers are the early harbingers of Spring, appearing before the leaves have fully emerged and it is a low-growing, clump-forming, perennial. 

To me there is nothing more that represents a work of art than nature. A flower, from seed to decay, is truly magical.

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Yes! You have to enlarge it to see the watercolour effect – it is quite subtle. The light was perfect for this shot – such an intense purple.

    1. I seem to be using far too many flowers on this blog at the moment Pete. But flowers shout art to me so what else could I have used! Thanks for all your lovely comments 🙂
