As I mentioned in one of my recent posts, 31 Things That Make Me Happy, flowers always have a way of making me smile. Whether they're hidden in nature or bought as a bouquet, I love the natural beauty of them - so much that I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to flowers!
I think all types of flowers are gorgeous in their own way, but if I had to pick a top three they’d be:
Lilies. These look really pure, delicate and peaceful to me. And they’re totally worth it despite the pollen which stains everything!
- Sunflowers. Personally I think there’s no better view than a field full of these in summer. I think it’s so beautiful how they all turn to face the sun and their bright yellow petals are so eye-catching too.
- Tulips. I love all of the different colours they come in! I also have a huge attachment to these as my mum bought me loads of them during my exams - they were a beautiful comfort on my desk whilst studying.
Anyway, over the last couple of years I’ve taken a photo a day (you can see more on my Blipfoto and 500px accounts) and quite a lot of these have been of flowers. I have no clue what half of them are called (I’m really not a botanist!), but I love the pictures so I though I'd share some of my favourites with you!
I hope the photos of flowers made you smile! My favourite photo is the one of the daisies (taken at Kilmardinny Loch at the start of summer) - let me know your favourite in the comments!
What’s your favourite type of flower?
