Photo Hunt - Narrow



The subject for this week's entry for Photo Hunt is Narrow. While there's nothing narrow about a crocus I suppose, it is an example of what is currently in bloom in a narrow north-south facing garden!

Carver said...

That's a great take on the theme. The crocus is beautiful. I'll have to start checking for my crocuses to begin popping up. I think it's usually late February here when they arrive to remind me of spring. I hope you have a great weekend.

I think it's real interesting that you've thought of shooting the flower because it's pointing towards the narrow south facing garden! :)

jmb said...

Well before it came fully into bloom it was narrow.
You must be off work with your toe, you have been posting up a storm here Jams.
Have a great weekend.

We don't have crocus in Singapore. Does it come in different colours? They would look great for our Chinese New Year. Colour of Gold !!! It means prosperity! :)

Heart of Rachel said...

It's a beautiful flower. I'm not sure if we have it here but I haven't seen one yet.

Tee hee, jams... guess you went for an interpretation of this week's theme that was far from narrow, huh? ;b

Great shot, and I do love your interpretation. I stuck to the straight and narrow :)

Marvellous blog with improbably posts.

Liz Hinds said...

Good grief, you already have 28 comments and thchick's post isn't up yet! hOW DID YOU DO THAT? Whoops.

THat is a very roundabout way of photographing narrow! But a beautiful photo and how lovely to see crocuses opening up for the sun.

Our crocuses have been pretty flattened by hail and wind. I don't think any have been allowed to get to this beauty's standard.

I have never see this color crocus, it is time for them to start peeping out of the cold ground.

Fabulous take on narrow - the stamen is narrow! And because of the narrow garden! :D

Lovely pic. And crocuses do have very narrow stems! Hope you're having a good weekend, and that you're keeping warm.

Heather said...

Gorgeous! I can hardly wait for spring!

Thanks for stopping by -- and have a great weekend. ;o)

The photo is beautiful though, and there is a narrow space between the top and the petals, which is likely where the bees have to fit through to get the nectar (if they are out gathering from crocuses).

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

And it is beautiful!

Anonymous said...

Beautiful shot! I love how the flower is isolated against the dark background - really makes the colors stand out!

Thanks for the visit!

That is a great way to interpret the narrow. We would be very narrowminded to reject it. Thanks for stopping by.
