Roses Have Eyes

I’ve just enjoyed my cappuccino and now it’s time to take a short but sweet nap before students “arrive” (via Zoom). But first? Well, I hope this makes you smile. It caused me to laugh, actually. I didn’t see it as eyes when I was shooting, but the minute it appeared on my screen I sure did! But maybe it’s just me …?

First Shot

As I was walking to the post office I saw to my right, and at a good distance, some brightly colored flowers. They appeared to be connected to some leaves — either the yellow and green leaves you see here, or some that looked like Dietes (African iris). Well, I couldn’t keep walking to the post office before checking the flowers out. Which leaves did they belong to?

Turned out they belonged to neither. The flowers were geraniums. Go figure.

I once had someone tell me geraniums were just boring and not worth photographing. I told him I disagreed. I hope you take my side!
