Yellows and Pinks in Spring

Spring in the garden is a simply marvelous season! New growth and blooms and the energy of the cycle of life seems to be bursting forth everywhere!

The yellow daisies around the corner and the bright pink of the Indian Hawthorn at our front door are welcoming the bees too.

Macro magic

#YourTurnChallenge #Day4

Magic happens in the minutiae of life that we are usually blissfully unaware of. Seeing the details of the ordinary up close gives a new perspective on the wonders the world holds.

I have always wanted a macro lens but could never justify the cost of one. Instead I used the lens I had to get as close as I possibly could.

Then for Christmas my darling husband surprised me with a beautiful new Canon macro lens. I almost wept with joy! A whole new world of photography awaited.

These are my first attempts at using it. It will take some getting used to but I am already thoroughly enjoying myself.

Salmon Pink Geraniums

The Salmon Pink Geranium in my garden is not very big nor is it a prolific bloomer which is no surprise considering how little water it gets during the drought but every now and then it blooms and it’s wonderful to watch it emerge.

Breezy Morning in the Garden

It was a bit breezy in the garden this morning so not great conditions for floral photography outdoors but there were still some lovely blooms to snap.

Droplets, cobwebs and a pink Geranium

The cobwebs in the ivy provided a lovely settling spot for some water droplets. Clearly we have several spiders! To add a touch of a colour I added a pink Geranium. It was rather difficult to get the droplets on the web in focus as the slightest camera shake or breeze produced fuzzy smudges. Here are some of the results.
