Old fashioned


These are the flowers on the peppermint geranium ... they remind me of old fashioned ribboned bonnets.

Reflection:
1 Corinthians 11:7 Every man who prays or prophesies with long hair dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with no covering of hair dishonors her head—she is just like one of the “shorn women.” If a woman has no covering, let her be for now with short hair; but since it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair shorn or shaved, she should grow it again. A man ought not to have long hair

  1. I have a geranium close to this in structure. I am only now, in my old-age, coming to value the single flower. A bit like learning the complexity of the sonata form when only used to the concerto ...

  3. Julie., I too have learnt to admire the more simple flower forms. Sometimes the extra frills make the flower look showy but other times plain deformed.

    Elk, floating .... yes that is a nice thought ... they do seem to float above the leaves.
