Take a photo of a flower(s) but don't forget to show its natural environment.

I like this.

I'd also like to see a Flowers challenge where no actual flowers were allowed...

Yep.

So, wild flowers? Or are gardens natural enough? (Not many flowers around here at all at the moment as it is winter.)

"IN THEIR NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. "

Most garden flowers are cultivated species, so the garden is their only natural environment. I think it means: where the flowers will die of old age, and not of being cut. Potted plants may be frowned upon, who knows..

The idea is to show flowers-connected-to-the-environment, as opposed to perfect-blooms-lovingly-arrayed-and-lit-in-the-studio... That's my take on it anyway....

yes, there are lots of photos of flowers outside on DPC, so it is not much of a "twist" ;-)

i also posted in the current challenge thread, just to stoke the fire, poke the beehive, etc. ;-)

Hmm I was wondering about that, I thought how can someone start a thread about a flower challenge when it's so obvious if you photograph a flower in the soil it's going to meet the challenge!
