A single bloom

As much as I love to have masses of flowers in my home, sometimes a single bloom in a simple vessel can be just as exquisite (and much cheaper too!). These are lovely examples of the beauty of a single flower (or two)...

So simple and sweet. There's no excuse for not having flowers in the house now.

They are all gorgeous, I was out admiring my neighbours roses and she said that I could take as many as I liked so I am off to get some!

Lee, what a stunning post and fabulous collection of images. simplicity is often the best and you can get much simplier than a single bloom, my favourite has to be the first image. xx
