Nice anthropomorphism here. Love how you created a story through a title.
Great catch

@LoulouPix: I LOVE 'anthropomorphizing' and do it all the time, especially to dogs and flowers !!! It makes the world very endearing. Thanks SO much for commenting. :-)

very nice in B&W i especially like the border placement.

shelle from United States

I like this in black & white. I like how the flower passes over the white border...kind of falling out of the frame. For my own taste I like more contrast. Whiter whites and blacker blacks.
