Lisianthus

I am momentarily distracted

the fold and curls!

the frills!

the sorbet colours!

the pearlescent sheen!


A stern voice inside my head says

"Get back to the ironing...
You are PROCRASTINATING"


*****

Thank you all for joining in yesterday -
you are the BEST group of comment box pals...
and so very generous with your friendship.

Just do your best to stifle that stern voice by blanketing it with flower petals. Ironing? I much prefer flower gazing!

Lovely.

What is ironing?

And amazingly lisianthus can survive 24 hours without water in their vase.

Obviously I can't reveal how I know this ;-)

I'm all for procrastinating over ironing. Beautiful photographs.

Personally I'd rather look at a toilet than iron never mind looking at something as beautiful as that flower - lovely words as always Alice :o)

I can smell that rose from here.

Divine.

Now get back to your ironing.

I went on a course last week where we had a talk from a "life coach" - she told us NEVER to listen to those negative voices in our head, we wouldn't talk to anyone else like it, so don't listen to them.

although you do have the most photogenic ironing I've ever seen so...

Scrumptious flowers. And I think I need to start taking driftwood's advice too ...

So beautiful. Definitely worth taking a break from the ironing for... K x
