I asked you to use the theme of the rough with the smooth as your inspiration for this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and I was inspired by two rather different examples of horticulture.
We were given some black lilies by our next door neighbours and I was looking forward to seeing them bloom dramatically amongst the ferns, but what we actually got was this mildly disturbing and very rough mutation…
…with buds growing out of buds, like the chest burster in Alien.
Which contrast very nicely with the smooth sleek forms of the day lilies, the star gazer lily and the perfect geometry of the dahlia which started blooming yesterday.
Now let’s see how you interpreted the prompt this week.
Come on in, the pictures are lovely!
