Dancing Flowers

The spell of hot, dry and humid weather has broken this morning – as predicted by the forecasters – so we’ve had a dull, rainy day so far; looks like it should brighten up this afternoon though. It feels nice and fresh and everything has had a good drink, although I do wonder what will happen to the couple of local Wheatfields which haven’t, as yet, been harvested.

I looked back at my recent posts today and realised that I hadn’t posted many brightly-coloured photographs, so today I’ve chosen another shot of the Helenium – Moerheim Beauty. Come Winter, I’m going to warm my hands in front of this one :-)

    • Thank you Sheila! Sunglasses are needed to look at this image I think! I wish I could grow them too but – yes – they need lots of sun and also plenty of moisture, so a difficult combination to maintain. I’ve read that they will wilt badly if they become too dry.

  1. I never looked at my heleniums close-up; mine won’t be blooming until late August-September. I am blown away by the great details: the scalloped petals which is repeated in the stamen. A very colorful, clear, crisp photo–well done.

    • Thank you! It certainly does dazzle! Well, the weather people said it would be less humid today, but it has built up again this afternoon. Might need a storm to clear it possibly.

    • Thank you very much – that’s very kind. I’m afraid my Thoughts blog is a little neglected at the moment – I seem, at present, to have found an outlet in my photographs instead! Many thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Thank you Sandy. Yes – it seemed the right time to post this image, on a cloudy, rainy day! I was going to add a link to some tango-type music but couldn’t find anything I was 100% happy with. They really do make you want to dance don’t they? I think I’d rather like a lovely twirly red skirt so I can whirl around the house!

    • Thanks Mike! The colours are really intense aren’t they? It was a bit of a shock when I first saw the photograph along with the automatic background colour when I posted!
