Let's See What's Blooming

The Kestrels will return in the next post....

What with Spring almost gone and Summer
coming Monday I had to post a few
'Blooming Flowers' from the yard.
The Pink Peony smells just as good as
it looks. Heavenly Divine!

The Purple Clematis with it's yellow accents is
alive and well..

Lantana is a plant that hummingbirds love and
so do I.

I have a real problem keeping roses... but this one is
thriving in it's 3rd year.

As I get closer for a 'macro' what do I see in the petals?

A tiny little creature looking back at me...

I have no idea what he is, but isn't he just the cutest
little thing?

The Amen! of Nature is always a flower.

Your rose looks like velvet.

Love your flowers, very pretty..can't believe Summer is right around the corner!!

I just love all of them! But that last picture is my favorite - what a cute face that little spider has! A nice surprise for you while photographing your flowers!

Shellmo said...

These were just stunning macros! That spider actually looked fuzzy and cute! (But I would still run away screaming - LOL!!)

I enjoyed seeing your current blooms - your clematis is stunning! I have a new found love for them - do you know the name of this variety?

The spider in the rose shot is just incredible - such a fantastic macro shot - I am in awe!
