White Ruffles








                                                                                                                                      Available for purchase here

Wow! I have a new love for gladioli after studying them more closely. The deep purple/cerise gladioli flowers have been deliciously velvety and almost iridescent. Now my first white gladioli is unfurling, showing delicate ruffled edges. Delightful indeed.


                                                                                                                                                   Available for purchase here

A little tweaking of the colours on this photo gives us a touch of midnight too!

WOW!!!
Gladioli are such beautiful flowers, but we do not see many whites here, so these are extra special to me! Your photographs of them are wonderful!

Gladioli are beautiful flowers and come in beautiful colors. I used to own a flower shot, and I loved working with them. They are pretty and they last and do not make a mess. Your captures are lovely, and the way you show off the curl in the petals is stunning.Lovely photography. genie
