Up close

During this wonderful hot weather spell
I have spent some time in my magic garden
pondering and wondering...
and
having some fun 
with the macro settings on my camera
(no I rarely read the instructions)


daisy, daisy...




l will never take the daisy for granted again, how beautiful is this...!






who woulda thought a dandy could look so brilliant







so soft...






so blue...but what the heck is it?
Ron tells me it is a Bluebonnet, national flower of Texas no less!!










a peek in through my special garden...

  9. Yep - I'm in agreement with everyone else! And yes - how different the pics are from mine to yours! Almost laughable!

    I have to laugh or I might cry - or move south.

  12. Dandelions are so unfairly hated by some. I've always loved them.

  13. Very nice, the rose hip seems to be dripping off the end of the branch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
