Dutch Flowers Exhibition. National Gallery.

I recently visited the Dutch Flowers exhibition at the National Gallery. http://goo.gl/5VasrO
Although I appreciate the detail and the place of these paintings in history, I’ve realised this type of art is just not my cup of tea. Personally I prefer there to be an obvious or maybe not so obvious, suggested or even imagined story behind a picture.
With flowers there is a vase of flowers and perhaps an imagined story line of these being grown, picked, studied, arranged, painted and often the only slightly humorous drama for me is there is some sort of bug feasting somewhere on them.
