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 have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. It’s an alpine flower so very sturdy! And so interesting! Also comes in a lovely ruby-red as well as a paler violet colour.

    1. It ‘s a lovely flower Jo, and I also love the furry leaves and stems. If you get the light right it is stunning.

    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 🙂

    1. Thanks Tina – haha, it did occur to me that we’d both used a watercolour effect, but with very different images 🙂
