International Women´s Day giveaway: special “flower photo contest” for 30 SBD!

in #giveaway4 years ago

Hi everyone,

Today is the International Women´s Day so let me first congratulate all of our amazing female Steemians on this very special day of theirs. I wanted to come up with something unique today to pay tribute to the “gentler gender” and realized it is the perfect occasion for another special photo contest.

Undoubtedly, flowers are the symbol of the International Women´s Day as they are the most common gift that men give women on this day. Therefore, I decided to pick FLOWERS as the theme of the contest.

Happy Women's day to all the lovely ladies here (including me :D). I wish I could participate in this contest, but sadly, I don't have any picture right now.

The amount of entries is overwhelming! There are some really beautiful flower images out there. However, some great entries are not following the guidelines set in the post. Kindly go through it again to make sure your entry is in compliance. One of the common issues with some of the entries is a missing 50 word description. Have a great night everyone! Tomas

I noticed many do not include the description and I really enjoy the stories. I hope your reminder will prompt more words. Thank you for hosting this awesome contest. I've finally decided which of my flower photographs to share and I'll make sure to write at least 50 words. Following you for more great ideas!

Really a great way to honor women on women's day. keep it up @czechglobalhosts

This my today's photo for a competition and a congratulation of all women on the international Women's Day. The choice of this photo is connected with weather which was in Moscow today. The first days of spring this year were very cold and snow, but today at last there was the sun. And though on the street all the same for the present a frost, sunshine have added festive mood. And all city has been filled up with snow, ice and flowers today!)


For this special day, I have chosen a flower I've taken of a friend's special day - a flower of a wedding cake. In my opinion, everything in a wedding the bride will always remember as they have most likely would have put all their thoughts and energy to make this special day memorable for themselves and the rest of the guest. Then, the bride will start a new journey with her dream partner and live happily ever after :). Happy International Women's Day!


Thanks for holding such a meaningful contest. Here is my entry for it. Women's Day stands for equal rights and equal opportunities. On Women's Day, I had half a day off. So, I together with my colleagues went to the nearby park to enjoy the beauty of nature. Have you noticed the bee staying on a white flower? Hope you like it. : )

Camera used: iPhone 7 plus

Very nice photograph! It's fun to find insects on flowers and get a close look. Happy to hear you had time off work to enjoy nature. I almost entered a photo I took in my sister's yard, with a bee on a flower, for this contest. Instead I chose a tulip photograph this time :)

Wow,it's cool!We took photo of the similar sight. Hope you can win this prize!😊

Photo of the Queen of the night. These flower only bloom at night and last one night. For this reason it is difficult to photograph them from the technical point of view. I took this photo back lighted and using a tripod. This flower is from my garden.

Neat! Thanks for sharing the information. This is an interesting species and excellent photograph!

Thank you for your nice comment.

Thanks for the info.

These flowers grow in my dacha. Every spring they bloom in purple. They are especially beautiful after the rain early in the morning. For this photo, I woke up around 6 o'clock in the morning just after a little rain.

Women love flowers. My main favorite are roses. Red roses have a special effect on me. That's why every Valentine's day, my dear husband don't forget to give me red roses just as a reminder of his love for me. This photo was taken on the recent Valentine's day this year and I displayed it in our dining room. And in life, you gotta smell the roses sometimes, there is truth on this saying.

@czechglobalhosts Gratitude for hosting this contest i.e. for recognizing and commemorating the value of women in our society.

For this particular contest, I chose a macrophoto of a special flower: the Sedum rubrotinctum flower. Although very small and delicate, its beauty, when carefully appreciated, is truly stunning!
With this photo I want to show that, sometimes, true beauty is not at first sight, but instead when we pay attention to the small details that pass us by on most days :)

Thanks for sharing the lovely photo and meaningful words. I agree with your thoughts and enjoy taking a close look at nature:

This "Mimosa" was given to me today by my girlfriend on March 8. In our country, if you see small twigs with yellow beads everywhere in the flower shop, then March 8 is just around the corner. Just a few twigs of mimosa are waiting for the lady in the spring festival. Tulips, of course, also did not cancel, but mimosa - it's so tender and warm ... and there is not much warmth after winter. resstem

We took this picture during one of our trips to Epcot during the Festival of the Arts. This festival is right before the Flower and Garden Festival so you get to see all the wonderful flower/topiary displays throughout each country. This one, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is in Germany. Naturally since Snow White was from Germany. The Seven Dwarfs are lined up behind her and it's a bit hard to see in this picture, but they're there. Everything in Snow White's body is made out of a plant/flower. I thought it was pretty neat.

I have taken this photograph when, we visited my younger daughter's school for admission in elder daughter's school about one month ago. I saw some beautiful flower laying in the garden of the school. So it didn't stopped me for to take photograph of those flowers. What matters if, I don't know the flower name but it is the beauty of the nature.
And the good thing is that my daughter also got the admission in the school.

The colors look stunning.

Water World does not stay away from the holiday!)
Congratulations on the holiday of spring! Especially beautiful girls and ladies!)
Water lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers growing near water.
water lily
I am with a slight sadness and undisguised pleasure, I recall the details of that trip to this wild lake. An amazing combination of unreal weather and a beautiful company.
The water warmed up so that you could swim there without a wet suit. And if in the afternoon we swam and photographed lilies.
But at night ...
Have you ever swum in a wild lake at night among lilies and with burning candles? Candles like small lights also floated on the water. And on the beach sounded a guitar ... and merging voices? Feeling of something unreal and magical ...

A lot of time has passed since then. But I did not succeed in such a trip. It's not for nothing that they say that you can not enter twice into a single water ..

There are so many words that you can describe a woman, selfless, enchanting, sensual, mesmerizing, nurturing, empowering, forgiving, captivating, gentle, graceful, ravishing, inspirational, intoxicating, devoted, vulnerable and plenty more but there's one word that truly describe a woman like a flower : they are IRREPLACEABLE!!. Happy Women's Day to all the women out there! And especially to my Mom, irreplaceable!

Hey @noriaakip, you writing about my mom, right? Nice!

Absolutely @patlu, to all the moms and women out there!!

I enjoyed your descriptive words and agree: there are so many words that describe women, as there are many species and colors of flowers. The evening scene in your photograph is a nice variation from most of the sunny flower entries :)

My sentiments exactly! A woman never sleeps! @mininthecity

Hey @noriaakip, nice! you writing about my mom, right? ;)

A woman is so unique in every way. Happy International Woman Day to u @noriaakip ;D.

Indeed!! Same to you @esdee !


Women, in the eyes of the beholder
Come in all shapes and sizes
Similar to flowers, beautiful as can be
Come what may, they may cry a bucket
But they will rise to any occassion
Like Wonder Women, never say die
Instinctively women know what to do
Selfless, nurturing and protective as can be
Float like a butterfly or sting like a bee!

Blessed Women's Day
and to single fathers too.

I appreciate your creative poem and the scenery in your photo.

Glad you enjoyed my entry. Appreciate your comment very much. It is an encouragement as I've not written poetry in a long while. :p

Good Luck @patlu. Poetry and u cannot be 'torn apart' ;D

Thanks. I try. Only amateur here. :D

This is a pink rose from me to women as a gift on international women's days around the world.
My thanks to @czechglobalhosts for reminding us of International Women's Day.

Awesome pink rose..
Women always love pink.. @firman

Pink flowers reflect the softness of a woman's heart

Happy International Women’s Day to all women out there! I took a bunch of this flowers and gave it to my mom during this day.

I have found this flower while I was walking around our place. These are very tiny flowers and i had to capture it very closely so you could appreciate its beauty. I really dont know the name of this one for it’s not usually seen on flower festivals but i believe that this is some kind of a wildflower. I hope this gets your attention. I hope you like it as well :) 3BE97E47-77B1-43D2-B00A-31F69142F088.jpeg

This is my entry for this women's day of @czechglobalhosts

Every women is beautiful in there own ways and the flower is the better reflection of women as they are beautiful and they give life just like flowers gives life to the forests...

This is picture of blooming cherry blossoms which i had click last year in mid of march when i visit tulip garden which is located in srinagar kashmir....., you can see beautiful flower and bee on it,
cherry blossom is also national flower


I took this Image at one of our local parks in Edmonton during A heavy thunderstorm. Rain was pouring down and the wind was blowing the petals up and I liked the way the flowers were moving and looking in the storm.

Well done! I love capturing water droplets on flowers and exploring nature in the rain :) I'm heading to your blog to follow you because I appreciate your photography and we have common interests.

I captured these white tulips in Keukenhof, a large flower garden in the Netherlands.
There are over 3000 varieties of tulips, with many different colors too. White tulips are popular as wedding bouquets, as they symbolize purity, innocence and respect.
Tulips 🌷 even created the first economic bubble in history, known as "Tulip Mania". In the 16th century, after the tulips were imported from the Ottoman Empire to the Western Europe, it’s getting more and more popular. Until the mid-seventeenth century, as a result of buying up bulbs, the tulips became so expensive that they were used as money till the market crashed. Sounds familiar? Yep, some people compare the cryptocurrency mania or bitcoin craze to "Tulip Mania". Of course there is also voice against this view. I'm not an expert on this, but time will tell.

May I enter with a mixed media piece?


This is my entry of flower photo contest on the special day of international women's day ... hosted by @czechglobalhosts. A woman can be soo strong and fight through all the darkness and hardships just like this one lotus has grown between all those leaves and dark but still shining bright and beautiful. Lotuses are not very rare because of which we sometimes forget to appreciate them but they are really mesmerizing and gorgeous,just like that we forget to appreciate the role,importantance and the beauty women’s brings into our lives. .

mmexport1520514634815.jpg this is a photo of a lotus which i took last year from my brothers dslr camera while having a long walk in a small green forest near my house.

The woman, a mixture of love, passion, strength and sweetness, a display of beauty in all its splendour, the woman is like a beautiful rose that captivates with its softness, aroma and splendor. I received this bouquet as a sign of love and affection, the rose a symbol of affection by nature that acquires various meanings through the colors, red of love, love women above all because they are the beginning of life. Delighted to participate, I hope the translator does a good job.

For this post I have prepared a photo of a bouquet that I gave my girlfriend for the anniversary. I always give her seven roses, but I also want to be always original, so I try diferent colours and decoration. At the same time, we went to one of the best restaurants in Liberec - Black Horse - an Irish restaurant, which I can only recommend.


PS: Small advice to all men: Give women flowers, even if there is not a special opportunity. You will see that they will be pleased.

Hi @czechglobalhosts, Happy women's day.. This beautiful sunflowers were captured during a Sunday outing.. While we were just on the way to some place in Mysore (INDIA), on the road side found a field full of these beautiful yellow sunflowers and were posing as if for me to take a snap of them :)
I thought of posting this photograph for this beautiful occasion as women's are as beautiful as flowers and both are tender,fresh and gentle.

After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.
By Christian Dior

Spring is around the corner. Every year cherry blossoms first in our city.


Now it is still cold and just few of them opened. I took this picture in a cloudy day when I was just under this cherry tree in our neighborhood. I like the lines that the cherry tree branches formed and the bulbs just would be dots in the picture, which are against the a little bit bluish grey sky. I thought it is a good example of point, line and plane. Thanks so much for @czechglobalhosts

Hi dear @czechglobalhost.

hibisco rosa-sinensis


This flower has history and importance in my life, since in the house of my grandmother's mother, there were many bushes of different types of these beautiful flowers, but there was a very special one in the window of her room, yellow and purple center , which she placed on her bedside table next to her bed, she always told us stories that with this flower her deceased husband conquered her. I mean, thanks to that flower, I exist.

I hope you have enjoyed the story.

Have a nice and beautiful day and again thank you for making this contest.
With love, Carla Gonzalez Venezuela.

Esta flor tiene historia e importancia en mi vida, ya que en casa de la madre de mi abuela, habían muchos arbustos de distintos tipos de estas hermosas flores, pero había una muy especial en la ventana de su cuarto, amarilla y con el centro morado, la cual colocaba en su mesa de noche al lado de su cama, siempre nos contaba historias que con esta flor su esposo fallecido la conquisto. Osea gracias a esa flor existo yo.
Espero hayas disfrutado la historia.

Hi everyone,
Here is my entry to @czechglobalhosts competition. The photo is of a European Honey Bee (Apis melifera) jammed as far as it could get in my old Citrus 'Lots of Lemons' (a dwarf Lemon Tree.) This photo was taken early last spring in my old vege patch. Unfortunately this tree is no longer alive :-( R.I.P my friend you are missed!!
Thanks for checking my shot out and good luck to all who have entered :-)

In this happy International Women's Day, I offer this beautiful flower to you my darling @nanazal.
I love you my honey.


Intrested post..
Wish everyone love the post..
Good luck.. @tika.chibi

"The area of ​​struggle for our women is to embellish with true virtue, with light, knowledge and culture rather than success in the field, shape and disguise that must be won. I have never doubted, and are absolutely sure, that our esteemed ladies will not fall below European women, but will be equipped with the light, knowledge and culture to go out on many directions. " Mustafa Kemal Atatürk


Thanks Wes, apprecited!

Happiness is what we all are looking for, happiness is what we all are fighting for, and Happiness is what we all are struggling for and nowadays we think happiness is in money. Look at these flowers they spread Fragrance, they spread happiness and they don’t want anything in return. Be like Flower and spread Happiness  Free Happiness 

This is a tiare flower, one of my favorite. The smell is hypnotic and if you collect it from the ground and put it in a bowl of water it will become the best air freshener ever.

My pleasure to offer this flower for all the woman reading this post :)

Location: Bali, Indonesia.

Oh nice. I think we call this Kalachuchi. Haha.

Thank you very much for your beautiful words for this day.


This is one of my favorite photos of the poppy, of the two species that I have known, the red poppy is undoubtedly my favorite, for me it represents love. I took this photo in my home country, Venezuela, a day that I was riding by bike with my boyfriend and we managed to see a whole field full of these flowers and I loved everything I saw, I could not help but admire so much beauty together.

Thanks for sharing your story and this wonderful photo. I also enjoy biking and photography. Happy International Women's Day!

First of all I want to thank @czechglobalhosts for this beautiful contest in honor of us women. I congratulate all the participants for beautiful photos!
I, with great humility, bring you this picture of a beautiful flower that lives in the water. She opens her petals when the sun's rays come out and closes them slowly when the sun is setting. I identified myself with this flower as a woman, because I have sincerely remembered the days in which I have faced serious problems, I have felt sad, I have cried... and I have closed my petals... but like this beautiful flower, I have regained my strength and with a new dawn, I have reopened the petals of my soul, to continue radiating love, tenderness, strength and strength every day.

Happy Woman's Day!!
Many thanks to all and God bless you all.



Hello everyone! Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in this contest. This flower represents the strength and beauty of nature, which GOD concentrated on women.


Also in keeping with the theme of spring time, this is a photo of some asian cherry blossom trees in Seoul National Cemetary in South Korea. It is nearing the time of year for cherry trees to begin blossoming, which is a national spectacle everytime it happens. millions of people venture out to areas of dense cherry blossom trees wearing cherry blossom themed accessories, to take pictures in front of the trees themselves.



Taken during our last family trip (using Huawei P10 + natural light):
These flowers to me represents ‘sisterhood’
Flocks together like women would
So pretty together that they take your breath away
You can’t help it but appreciate the beauty
They’re pretty to see, but if not handle with care they crumble easily
The thorns were there to keep them safe
If you don’t handle them with great care you could prick yourself
Flowers are indeed one of God’s best creation
That grows in every continent and nations
Whether it’s from the receiver or the giver
They symbolises love, peace and friendships
Happy International Women’s Day to all you lovely ladies on Steemit!
And thank you to @czechglobalhosts for this wonderful opportunity

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Handle me with care
Or I'll prick you!


Thank you for the tribute of " International Women´s Day", Tomas. Here below is my entry for this contest :

1.. botanic garden (20a)-1a.jpg

There's a quote saying " A rose is like a fine woman. Beautiful, exquisite, yet dangerous, if they are held the wrong way ", i think thats quite true :)

This image taken on my last day in Belfast. It's a rainy morning, but i managed to go to the botanical garden and visited this rose flower park. This lovely pink rose flower was one of my favourite. I love how the rain water pouring down to the rose petals and gives a freshness looks.

Lovely. My flower photograph was also taken on a rainy day. I like capturing the water drops on the flower petals. It looks fresh, as you said. Happy International Women's Day!

This is from one of my recent posts.
A City A Story Photo Weekly Contest # 15: The Purity of Lotus | 清净无染莲花

After some research, I found this about the significance of the Lotus Flower:
In Buddhist symbolism the lotus is symbolic of purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals. ... It is also to be noted that many Asian deities are depicted seated on a lotus flower. According to legend, Gautama Buddha was born with the ability to walk and everywhere he stepped, lotus flowers bloomed.

Hi, last year I went with my family to saw the cherry blossoms in Japan in Hirosaki near the island of Hokkaido.


Woww here is the original appearance of the PURPLE JUNGLE FLOWERS I took or the photo with my own hp camera that is SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 3 NEO, and it is my own initiative also to advance the platform or blog or web steemit. PURPLE JUNGLE FLOWERS is the name I give special for this type of flower, because I think this type of flower has not been touched or detected by the crew researchers and online search website in this world.

Firstly, I wanna say many thanks for your meaningful contest!
Here is my entry - A couple of lotus in the magic sunlight


Lotus is our country flower - it is symbol of the tranquil and beauty.
A couple of lotus also express for the love, a small bee flying is something the taste of love. In the weak sunlight of a summer day, it seem be a perfect shot that I have taken!

For all, I hope that all of women in the world will be always beautiful and bright as the pink of lotus...
Happy International Women's Day

White lilies are my favourite! and their smell is so beautiful. This lily was grown by my LOVELY mom in our cottage where we have a small garden with various species of flowers. It´s a really pretty flower and I wish I´ll have them on my wedding day as my wedding bouquet 😊

Love lilies. Nice pic

Trying to find nice flowers to photograph for this contest I found this one... the moment I saw it a lot of memories came to me. Almost every day of my childhood my father picked me up at school, and then we walked to his workplace, and almost every day he picked up this flower in a park nearby and gave it to me, always with a nice word about the nature and the womanhood. He always encourage me to be whatever I wanted, and he taught me that I could be anything I wanted.

I made a separated post for this picture

wow, this is so cool @czechglobalhosts, i love this contest. Because I really like the beauty of flowers. I have some flowers in my house. I will share about the Dandelion Flower. In my opinion, Dandelion Flower is very beautiful and unique. Hopefully dandelion flowers are liked by many people. Thank you for sharing and hopefully you will be more successful to work ... :)



Spotted this bunch of lovely purple flowers among the greens up in the hills of Langkawi. Small, bright and sprightly looking, the flowers reminded me of the many women whom I have met in my lives. Not only is purple a lovely colour and one of my favourites, the colour purple is the official colour for International Women's Day as it symbolizes women and is the colour to signify justice and equality.
"Purple is historically associated with efforts to achieve gender equality. Now widely associated with contemporary feminism, the colour purple symbolizes achievements gained and achievements yet to come" says IWD organization.
To all women near and far, "Happy International Women's Day".

Really great! love the symmetry and colors.


the lotus flower as it is called it, is synonymous with the myth that this flower is a bewitched princess then turned into a flower that lives on the water, this flower I aimed and dedicated to them strong, pity, beautiful, and unique women all over the world as gifts on international women's days around the world. all have everything to take the world by your step

For a woman who is strong, compassionate, beautiful, and unique may you continue to inspire the people around you

The infinite thanks to @czechglobalhosts who have reminded us of this very historic Day, happy International Women's Day.

Thank you for sharing and making this contest @czechglobalhosts
my interest in this photo is the flower Princess,
Shy Daughter of tropical plants are able to distinguish between living beings and inanimate objects, to make decisions about potential dangers.
flowers are my photos in the morning by using macros, actually pretty shy daughter small flowers.


My mom always liked the lilies. That is why today, International Women's Day, I acknowledge you with this beautiful detail. My mother lives in a lily, so I keep them. God eternally bless the female sex, without them we would be nothing, we are born of them and we feed ourselves, in them we procreate and with them we live our last days. Congratulations to all of them. A hug.
I think that a single flower is not enough, that's why I wanted to make a bouquet of three beautiful orchids to celebrate International Women's Day. And it is chosen to the orchid because it is the national flower of my country Venezuela. In addition, the orchid is a flower that faithfully reflects all the beauty and delicacy of the woman, which is the best gift for them.

Beautiful, tender and fragile.

I tried to follow this contest to try to share the work and participation to enliven the contest.
Hopefully I was elected.

Happy international women's day! A brief story... I used to feel bad about picking flowers until I met my wife. She has very simple taste and would prefer that I not buy flowers as a gift. Instead, if I'm out and about and see something nice, I pluck it and take it home to her.

Maybe I chose for this contest one of the most common flowers The Rose, flower that for me means a lot and makes me travel to my childhood years, when my angel guardianMy Grandmother cultivated these flowers. Towards our home a wonderful place with these aromas that disliked their gardens, when the rain fell it was refreshing to have to be at home, and to have that great combination of aromas that brightened your days.

Thank you for exalting International Women's Day @czechglobalhosts

This is great! Getting my camera ready. Thanks @czechglobalhosts


A floral arrangement is always an excellent gift for any occasion, in my case I am very happy every time they give me one. This photo was taken this Valentine's Day, it was the gift that my boyfriend gave me, nothing better than many roses to decorate and aromatize a place, transmitting peace and love to all around.

A closeup of flowers from a friend's wedding arranged by a family friend. The lily was in full bloom and the pink rose and white baby's breath added a touch of delicate beauty to bring out the bold pink of the big lily. A celebration of love and grace. Happy International Women's Day!


This is photo of a lotus flower from my backyard fish tank which I never knew I had growing until I saw it from my bedroom window. Upon taking a closer look I found the unique beauty it held inside.

I have chosen this photo for the International Women’s Day flower photo contest to represent a couple of the colours associated with International Women’s Day. White represents women’s 'purity' and encased in it is green representing 'hope' they hold inside them.
Hope for a better future.

Beautiful and so fun to find it!

Thanks @sjarvie5. It was very exciting when I peered into this flower and found this hidden gem

This flower I got a few weeks ago when I climbed the mountain. This is a creeping plant. The flowers are very beautiful. anything that looks beautiful then I will capture it with my camera phone. Hope you like it.IMG_20171230_145840.jpg

Great! Sometimes I miss contest rules and have to edit my entries. Good to see your update.

This is a macro shot I took some days ago after the last wave of bad weather that hit Europe. I was walking when I saw this small flower in a clear spot where snow had already melted and I thought it was the first sign that the spring is on it's way. Luckily I have a camera and a macro lens with me :)

Finding the first signs of Spring feels inspiring. I always look for tulips and fresh green buds on the trees. Thanks for sharing this little blossom :)

Hello dear steemians! March 6th was established as International Women's Day but it took them two days to get ready. So he was transferred for March 8th.
Man's day was also planned, but, as usual, they forgot it.


One of the best gift we can give to anyone is Flowers! I saw many smiles in their faces when they received flowers from someone they love. I took this photo in one of the park we passed in New South Wales Australia.

Flowers for someone closed to our hearts!
Flowers for someone we want to feel well!
Fowers for someone were happy to see their success!
Flowers for someone we want to lift up their spirit!
Flowers for the bride to be on their wedding day!
Flowers for everyone who loves flowers!

This is a rose in my house.


As we know that women are very fond of flowers, especially if the roses are often given as a gift and will give an impression to someone who gave it. Every living thing of course has its own beauty only we have to be able to maintain every beauty that has been owned.
Happy international women's day.

Women are privileged ... we are strong as an oak, we capture all eyes, we have the courage of an armed knight and a contagious sweetness ... We are warriors, dreamers, hardworking, beautiful, passionate ...
May we always have the blessing of God, his grace to live, his strength to fight and the desire to share


Because each woman channels a goddess, because each one of us came from a woman... A flower for you, women, life bearers and givers.

I believe all people are equals, a call for change as we should not be defined by gender. An empowering call to my fellow sisters in the world dreamers, mothers, artists, creators. Empowering the gifts you are give so your voice is heard.
Endure the storms, drink its waters and BLOOM. Unfurl!

This photo was taken in one of the massive biomes at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK. The site houses the largest indoor rain forest in the world. I know practically nothing about flowers so can't tell you its name. In this world, we are all unique but at the end of the day we are all human beings. How can we stand out among our peers?


I chose to submit this image of a bouquet of the Chrysanthemum White Daisies. They were facing the window. I like the natural light and the innocence of the flowers. I also find a white colour to be the right choice for the International Woman's Day's bouquet!

The bouquet of flowers is usual in my house! I prefer to have a vase on the dining table - it looks good and it feels good!

I was also thinking of submitting colourful tulips, but my little one said - white! So here we are:

Very nice choice! I noticed the water droplets add to the refreshing feeling of these cheerful white blooms :) Good to see you entering this contest!

Trinitarians in my garden...

One of the things that my mother likes the most is flowers and one of her favorites are the Trinitarians. This one that I show you today, is very particular since it is a graft between a pink Trinitarian and an orange Trinitarian. Nature is a gift from our planet, we must appreciate it, admire it and take care of it.

this is the flower of thought. which I photographed in front of my house. and these flowers are often encountered around our home. and very fragrant fragrance.

My entry for the flower contest is this.


Look how beautiful these Orchids Flowers blooming in our backyard right now. It's perfect time to see them glowing everyday, with the help of the weather here. Orchids may have the characteristic of being strong plant whatever the weather is. Like us women, we are strong whatever problems we faced. We are still standing and never give up until we have reach our goals.

This is my entry for this "flower photo contest".

This photo was taken in Osaka using my mobile One Plus5T.
When I was walking to the train station and passed by a house, I found these lovely creatures. Japanese are always being attentive to the details of their life and living in such delicate way which I love a lot.

Thank you!

Even if i dont agree on having a "Womens Day", because that keep us apart as specie, i always say and ill keep saying that womens are superior, so much potential, so much that we need to understand about them, their energy, their minds.

Womens, please hurry and take over the world!!

Choosing which of my flower photographs to share for this contest was difficult. I finally decided on this for a few reasons.

  • Women bring new life into the world and tulips are the first flowers to bloom where I live, a sign of new life each Spring.
  • Rain is cleansing, renewing, and refreshing. Females can celebrate International Women's Day by cleansing our negative thoughts about femininity, renewing our commitment to love ourselves first, and beginning each day with a fresh perspective.
  • I took this photograph while walking during a gentle rain shower with a toddler girl. She reminded me to slow down and look closely at the beauty around us. Women are often rushing to do it all. This photograph is a reminder to take time to appreciate our own beauty and all that surrounds us.
Thank you for this opportunity @czechglobalhosts! I'm enjoying the photographs and words people are sharing to celebrate International Women's Day and the beauty of flowers :)

Nice one, I love flowers. And I love presenting flowers to my other half. So I would like to take this opportunity to wish a lovely Int. Women Day to everyone here!

Sadly I don't have any camera gear so I took this picture (like all of them) with my mobile phone. Below you can see the 3 different stages of this flower, which I tried to capture. From right to left: it's still green dormant state, next to that it's start to open up and get a nice color, after that the flower in full-bloom. This was taken in a small park in Taipei, Taiwan.


For this contest, I am sharing a photo I took of a flower produced by my Okra plant. In the photo, the flower was in its peak of blooming. It bloomed because it was bound to produce a nutritious and delicious Okra fruit. Seeing the flower of my Okra plant bloom reminds me of how much beauty women share to the world. Like flowers, women bloom with a greater purpose than ourselves, and that is to give life.

Happy Women's day :)

my small contribution for all the women

orange colour lily flower.
scientific name : Hemerocallis fulva

we used to call it lily only and one of my favourite flower.The height of this flowers is about 2 feet to 3 feet. This flower need a good Sunlight, more Sunlight means more flowers. The size of flower is like 15cm to 20 cm.A single flower can bloom for about 5 days to 8 days. It does not have a good fragrance but colour and freshness of this flower is amazing..
if you have a garden, please plant this flower too.

I love seeing orange lilies in my neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They're very cheerful. Thank you for sharing this!

thank you for kind words .. the freshness of this flower is eye-catching...

photography flower is very beautiful


Very good post, I love this contest, I will try to stop this contest, this is wildflowers
Be like you a beautiful flower is seen, but difficult to pick, Although you will wither tomorrow surely you will bloom again
Back beautiful and fragrant fragrant spread of affection and love. Thanks greetings from @mr-talebIMG-20180308-WA0000.jpg

this bouquet of red tulips my sister and her husband bought today in the store and gave to my mother on international women's day. My mom put this bouquet in a vase of water. Vase stands on the kitchen table. Bouquet of tulips cost $ 3, it is cheap beautiful flowers

Just like my great love for women, here is a Pacora Anthurium it loves so much its flower (bract) are heart shape. The spadix is really the flower, thats the elongated spike shaped part. This plant is native to south America and can even be found in the Caribbean islands. Happy Womens day!


This is a another species of Nymphaeaceae, or commonly called Water Lilies..

The Story of this flower is when I start breeding and owning Betta Fish as a Pet, this containers is where I place all the betta fries that comes from the breeding place of my fishes. I represent this flower because this is one of the common flowers came here at my home here at the Philippines where the place I lived in.

I compare Waterlilies as a Mother or a Woman, cause waterlilies roots served as a source of food and shelter to the fish baby fries, as a mother of a child, a mother's love shown by taking care of their youngs just like waterlilies do. That's why I admire this kind of plant especially when they bloom a great flower even it looks like a simple beauty but it stands as a banner of their great benefits to the baby fish fries..

I put up my watermark signature as my original taken up photo of this flower. thank you for this kind of contest, I really appreciate this kind of events that really help the steemit community to develop and grow. again thank you and goodluck to all who participate this contest.

I love this idea...
Here's my entry.

Roses are my flower, I love receiving roses, they're so beautiful and their perfume is divine! But... they can cost a lot of money and they never seem to last long. While I appreciate them and they look nice, what I really love is taking photos of them! A photo last forever, you can always look back and re-appreciate them and while we can't smell them, their beauty is enough... Nothing says woman to me more than a stunning red rose.

Portrait of a flower

This beautiful flower was discovered as I was walking through the gardens one lovely April morning near the Smithsonian Castle and the Art and Industries building in Washington, DC. As a portrait photographer I wanted to get a "portrait" of this flower and capture its intrinsic beauty.

Happy International Women's day to all those women that stand tall in their inherent beauty.


flowers blooming, fragrant scent of small garden front of my house. its beauty always radiates from your beautiful shapes and colors. still be beautiful despite the rain still showering. Please stay with me forever.

This is the jasmine symbol of the beauty of Indonesian women, often used for various traditional ceremonies in Indonesia, this flower is very fragrant and very famous among nobles and world tourists, this flower shows a woman who is smooth, gentle, and needs to be maintained dignity and, this flower I aim for those great women around the world as gifts on international women's days around the world. The world is becoming a better place because of the presence of many women. No matter what their status, they add to the meaning of our existence, they bring love to our lives.

When I found out I was pregnant I sat down in a field with almond trees. Looking up at the blue sky, I could see the branches with white and pink flowers. I've lost the baby a few weeks later. But these beautiful flowers always remind me of that wonderful feeling I had.

Hello everyone, hope you have a good day today 😊 and I'd like to thank @czechglobalhosts for this chance, thank you so much sir for being kind to all women, you have a good heart.
My entry was mini rose or tiny 🌹. First, rose is the symbol of women. Maybe because whenever you see rose, you might think about women not men. Then, it is tiny because it symbolize as "me" . No, I'm not dwarf! It just that, for me tiny rose is a simple rose. Maybe some may choose the bigger one and I like it too, but I only have this tiny rose. I plant this in our yard. And definitely, I'm content with this. I'm happy with all the plants I have. 😊

nice photography
