Language of Flowers: Hiatus

Some words sound exactly like what they describe -- sparkle for instance. Others are a sad mismatch -- whoever thought of calling a rather attractive flower a peony? It sounds like a disease.

I was noticing the other day that some words, that have nothing to do with flowers, would actually be quite good names for a flower. With that in mind, here's the first of a series -- Hiatus:

Part of the word's meaning, of course, is worked into the flower itself. Hiatus is a missing part, gap or lacuna.

And since this is a blog about learning Photoshop... I added the texture on the petals and center with a stylus instead of a mouse. I still have a lot to learn, but this was an interesting effect.
