Flowers at Sea

Good morning,

My readers know how much I just love flowers!  Today I'm sharing images of flowers that I've taken over a three week period.  I just love photographing them in different light.
The first two images are the same arrangement.  One image was taken with flash, the second in natural light.
Oooh, peach roses!

 Classic red.

 Mother Nature's Beauty
 This arrangement was given to me by a guest who was leaving the ship and didn't want the flowers to be thrown out.  They lasted another whole week for us to enjoy.
 And, the last ones are images taken in different light of yellow roses.

 I hope you enjoyed these as much as I enjoy having them.  So beautiful!

Natural light is my preference, Lois, as flash seems to take away from the natural beauty of the roses.

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, while we are at sea my posts run a little while behind real life since I only upload images and posts via my Verizon connection when we are in US ports. Since I uploaded this post, we no longer are able to get flowers on board. I have saved the images of the last bouquet that I received and will post that bouquet on Valentine's Day.

I do not know why the flowers will no longer be available. :(

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments.

All the best,

Beautiful flowers, Lois! Too bad about no more flowers on board. Hopefully that won't be a permanent thing.
