Floral Friday : Something Romantic


I'm pleased to take part in this wonderful photo series started by Trishie at Under Lock and KeyThe theme for February is "something romantic."

Romantic to me is the dreamy flutter of delicate flower petals against one another especially in shades of pink. These beautiful pale pink colored chrysanthemums beckoned to me as they sat outside a corner deli on West Broadway in New York City. Of course I just had to take them home with me after snapping this photo. What flowers or qualities of flowers do you find romantic?

Floral Fridays is a monthly photography project with different themes each month. This series is about fun and taking time out to smell the flowers. To play along, please email Trishie for next month's theme. And please visit my fellow participants below for more floral inspirations.

Hi Rowena! This monthly project is really beautiful, love flowers too, the smell, the colors, the shape, everything about them makes me feel in a happy mood. This shot is outstanding, you have been really good dear, you know, here in Italy chrysanthemums are beautiful flowers dedicated to dead so when you go to the cemetery have to take them to your beloved ones. My fav romantic blossoms are red roses :) Have a wonderful weekend dear, kisses! xo

I don't even know which flowers I find romantic. To be honest, I don't know most of the flowers names in English, so I wouldn't be able to tell, but I do love those pink flowers in your picture above. They certainly look romantic to me.

The photo is beautiful, Rowena! I love the little bit of the blue/green wall behind peeking through all the pink.

I've totally given up on Insoon is Pretty and the one about a Flower Boy Band (I heard a good review of that one but didn't enjoy the fist episode at all so I stopped). I think Choi Jin Huk is adorable when he smiles but I watched about 10 minutes of Emergency Couple and he only smiled once. He was like that in Heirs too, mostly angry or brooding. It's crazy the amount of INR 3 flashbacks. I guess that's the signature of that series.

I hope you have a great weekend!

I think it's great how
