Who's perfect, Barbara???

;-)

Definitely your withered thistle is much more fascinationg than many other "perfect" blossoms or flowers.
If you take your time to look closely to it. Photography, especially reduced photography is a way to focus to details the majority generally never takes into account.
So you definitely did a good, even a perfect (?) job to focus on this little piece of imperfection.
Have a great and peaceful Easter feast, dear Barbara.
Regards from Germany,
Uwe.

Perfectly imperfect, wat een mooi thema is dat Barbara.
Inderdaad ik zie ze ook de drie
kleine sterretjes.

Heerlijk als je er oog voor hebt
er is zoveel schoonheid te
ontdekken om ons heen.
Het geeft zoveel vreugde en maakt
het leven zeker een stuk
kleurrijker!!!

Je foto's zij zoals altijd
SCHOONHEDEN!!!

Liefs

There is nothing more perfect than your little weed. The other flowers are beautiful too... so remind me of spring.

Barbara,
The wild chamomile looks so much like the daisy in this picture. I love how you find beauty in the imperfect things. Your pictures are wonderful, and I especially like the one with the flowers in the egg.

Happy Easter, Barbara.
