Somehow this reminded me of drops of wine....
The black and white really makes the details pop.
I went to the zoo yesterday and spent more time with the flowers than the animals.
Cone Flower and Bee
I love how the Cone flowers attract the bees.
Wisteria & Bee
I love to watch the bees in the Wisteria blooms this time of year.
I love my roses and I spend a lot of time with them while they are blooming.
This beauty is in my back yard after a rain
I spent some time this afternoon playing with layers and filters. I liked this result.
Home Grown Beauty
This little tulip is waving on a Spring breeze right in my own front yard. What a beauty.
I love Spring. The tulips are blooming in a riot of colors.
Nothing like getting up close and personal. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers.
Hibiscus on Steriods
I shoot them and then I play with them.
It is the time of year when we look to the flowers to give us signs of Spring.
I shoot them and then I play with them.....
I shoot them, and then I play with them. This started life as some lovely lavender from my garden.
Living Out Loud
I love having roses blooming in my garden in December.
I never know how these will turn out. I was more than pleased with this one.
The Autumn light is always magical. Never more so than seen through the lens of a rose.
I adore sunflowers. I spend as much time as possible with them every year.
I love this cheerful blossom. It looks like it is throwing a party.
This beauty was photographed at my favorite nursery. I love the depth of color.
Something from Nothing
I love to work with layers of my own art. I never know what to expect. I can only say that this one was a cool surprise.
I love to spend time in the garden after it rains. I never know what I might find.
This beauty is currently showing in my backyard.
This Anemone is colorful in all the right places.
These Rudbeckia are glorious right now - just a riot of color.
I love the late day light on a sunflower. They gravitate towards all they can find.
Dinner Plate Hibiscus
These hibiscus really are as large as the plates for which they are named.
I celebrate all of my roses - but never more than those end of Summer blooms.
I am going to hate seeing the end of Summer flowers in the yard.
This is one of my most faithful bloomers through the Summer months.
I shoot it and then I play with it.
I love to play in the abstract playground.
Flower petals - enough said.
Ready For Takeoff
I love to find the little visitors on the Coreopsis.
Yellow Canna Lily
The Canna Lilies put on quite the show.
This Yellow Swallowtail was feeding among the flowers. Poor guy has lost his "tail."
