TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Playing with a new Toy


Just got my Macro lens
tee hee hee


playtime: a little hillock
of pollen


who knew that English daisy petals
looked like polyps??


a little splash of colour
hanging on after last night's
severe frost


and a few shy Tritelias
sheltering under a rose bush


Wether you have summer or winter where you are
make sure you enjoy whatever is blooming.
