A Pick Me Up !


It is gloomy out side today with light snow flying around . The snow melts on contact so that’s a good thing .

I am looking forward to spring  , being in the gardens getting my hands dirty and seeing lots of lovely colours . But for now I will enjoy my indoor flowers and looking at photos from my archives  and planning for my gardens  it gives me A Pick Me Up ! and helps get through this crazy month of March with  it’s wacky  teaser weather !


                     I took these photos this morning after Miggs and  I got back from our walk !



When it comes to flower photography I like to use my Macro lens to try to capture the delicate yet amazing form of each petal .


                                            These photos below are from last summer !



I also love photographing bees and of course butterfly’s .



Hope these photos of flowers  give you a bit of  A Pick Me Up !


                                                              I know they do for me !

                                                     Until next time , Have a good day !

                                                Thanks For Popping By !

Lovely flowers!

That's one thing I've been missing since being out west... flowers, grass, trees and color!

I'm glad the snow isn't sticking.

Have a great weekend!

We sure need a pick me up on this dull day. Winter is hanging on till the bitter end. We were just watching the robin through the back windows.
How lovely your Christmas cactus is blooming. I was checking mine and there are some buds but no sign of blooms yet.
