Gallery: three flowers, three fruits
There are always flowers for those who want to see themHenri Matisse
Yes, there are always flowers, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, especially at this time of year. Is there a photographer anywhere, I wonder, who doesn’t want both to see them and to capture them forever?

I am sure we can find plenty of flowers in groups of three for Thursday Trios, if we look carefully enough. And hopefully they won’t be in competition with each other!

Yes, perhaps we can find some fruit too! And other botanical threesomes. Some of these were photographed in various parts of the world, on my travels. But the pelargoniums in my feature photo were photographed just yesterday in our own small back garden. Proof, if it were needed, that there is beauty to be found wherever we look, near or far.
And it is needed at the moment, for me at least. We should have been flying to Sofia this morning for a long weekend. But instead we’re grounded because after two and a half years Covid has finally caught me. Fortunately I don’t feel too rough, but travelling anywhere just isn’t possible. We’ve been able to reschedule for later in the year so aren’t really out of pocket and we still have it to look forward to. And at least it gives me time to share these beauties with you all!

I’m sorry you’re missing out on Sofia now … but fortunately there is the prospect of going there later this year. The flowers are all so “blooming” beautiful – the waterlilies between the green leaves are gorgeous. And I like any daisy – those in your pictures are very similar to ours during spring time. Oh olives, I learned to eat them when I was introduced to red wine … now, I love them (both the olives and red wine)!
Lovely pictures Sarah!
Thanks so much 😊 I agree, olives are the perfect accompaniment to red wine – cheers 🍷
Wow so many threesomes 👍🏼🌸🌸🌸
Thanks Tersa – looking for them is starting to become a bit of a habit 🙂
I haven’t joined that challenge yet.
I’m sure you’d enjoy it 🙂
Maybe if I find some threes. Will try one day 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Stunning trios of flowers this week, Sarah. You’ve outdone yourself.
Thank you so much – and also for hosting this fun challenge 😊
What a brightly colorful Thursday Trio! 🙂
Thank you Rose – you can’t really go wrong with flowers!

So beautiful Sarah ❤
Ah you’ve fallen foul to the dreaded lurgy…and just in time to muck up travel plans. Bummer. Hope you don’t feel too rough throughout and are soon able to enjoy things again. Including Sofia when the rescheduled trip comes along.
Yes, rotten timing, although it could have been worse – at least that wasn’t a major trip! I pretty much feel like I’ve got a rotten cold but with more coughing 😫
Fingers crossed then

Pretty, happy photos. Thanks Sarah!
Sorry to be so late in acknowledging your lovely comment – for some reason it went into my spam and I only just spotted it today!
My sympathies for getting Covid and also having to postpone your trip to Sofia. Thankfully, you’re only suffering from a bad cough. Hope it doesn’t get worse. Our reward is this lovely compilation of photo threesomes!
Thank you Annie – I’m pretty much fully recovered now (a lingering tickly cough at times) and have been testing negative for over a week, so was able to enjoy my weekend celebrating my nephew’s wedding 🙂 Hence the slight delay in replying to your comment!
