Fleeting in their beauty. Already they are fading from their best.
The edges of the petals are starting to change colour and take on a hint of gold.
The centres of the flowers are Nature's artwork.
Red flowers are my favourites: be they gladioli, roses, poppies, amaryllis or anything else you can think of.
My father knows that I love red flowers and he designed and made me this lovely glass picture a few years ago. It hangs in my bedroom so I that I can see it every day.
It should be in the window to catch the light but I think it is gorgeous where it is.
It's very tactile due to the lead holding the pieces of glass together.
Natural or man-made, red flowers do it for me.
