I have lots of flower pictures – but for me my favorite is daisies. I carried these at my wedding over 40 years ago and I think they are such a happy looking flower
We have these trees in our yard – they don’t last long – but they are gorgeous while they are here. Even the flowers that fall off the tree onto the ground have a certain beauty about them.
Impatiens flowers are pretty small but with a macro lens you can really get close and see the world in the center of the flower. It’s amazing how I could not see all of this with my eye, but through photography, we see something new. I think that’s why I used to love microscope work when I worked in the clinical laboratory many years ago.
Rather than take pictures of flowers from the front – I placed my camera under the flower to get pictures of the flower underneath. This was challenging since I don’t have a swivel screen on the camera and could not tell if I had the picture composed since I could not look through the view finder. Kind of a fun exercise to try!!!
Believe it or not this coreopsis flower is called Jethro Tull. Being a child of 60’s music I had to have one. Now all I need is the Beatles and the Moody Blues and my garden will be complete !!
This is a close up of a Gerbera Daisy. I’ve never planted these – but the seem easy to care for so they might show up again in our yard.
The top picture is of a hosta getting ready to bloom. It has some nice white flowers. The bottom is my fave – daisies – which I carried on my wedding day almost 41 years ago. My how time flies.
