Spring Awakening...

So after a week of teasing us (felt more like a month!) with her tightly closed buds, this little beauty finally announced "I'm here!" All is forgiven as I happily greet her! Primroses and johnny jump-ups are also greeting us with their bright blooms. I'm warning you now..there are more macro shots coming as I'm having lots of fun with my new camera :)

  4. Oh how beautiful, Lynn. I am glad the macro sparked your creativity! The primrose shot is a miracle, those are some of my favorite flowers, as are the violas. Your hellebore is a beauty too, all is forgiven, I love it! :-)

  5. Thanks, Tessa, the camera is a cute little pink Olympus Stylus, very compact and everything is built in. I hope you get the lens you'd like..maybe some hints for an upcoming birthday:)

    Hi Brooke, welcome home! Thanks for visiting..I love your post on the beautiful larkspurs.

    Hi Stephanie. Well I'm envious of the plants you can grow year round that I can't...that's why garden blogging is so great! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Frances, primroses are cheerful aren't they. I would love to get the variety that blooms on taller stems and the leaves are more rounded. I laid on my tummy to get that shot and I know YOU can appreciate that..lol.

    Thank you, Lona. The macro shots are
    fun BUT your hands have to be extra steady so I end up with one good out of 10...lots of practice AND patience.

    No, I am not going into Botany. Unfortunately there is not a need in this field and I do want to be able to support a family some day. So botany is out of the question for now.
