Today's Flowers - 05-03-09: Gardenia


Well, it's spring and the flowers are bursting open everywhere I look. So here's a new weekly meme just for the flowers! Today's Flowers hosts can be found here.




Gardenia getting ready to open:



I thought I'd try this in B&W - I like it. What do you think? I'm always so surprised when something I think of as beautiful because of its color looks striking in B&W.

The gardenia is delicate like leaf thin china with a mysterious hint of velvet.
A wonder both in color and b/w.

Good morning Terri. Awww I love the smell of gardenia. They are such beauiful flowers. Your black and white photo turned out perfect.

That's a super idea to include both photos. I love the first but then I also love the second. Black and white adds a new dimension. Great photos! Thank you for sharing and have a great week.
