Micro photography really shows the perfection of each petal and what goes on in and on the blooms Nature  it is so wonderful  !

Cloudy and very humid here today . We had a storm last night so all these blooms are happy and well watered !

                                            Until next time , hope you have a good day !

just gorgeous. You can't see our flowers for weeds as it is just too flipping hot for me in the garden at the moment. I hate this heat and humidity.


Lois Evensen said...

Your flowers are gorgeous! My cone flowers are in bud but still a bit away from blooming, nice to see yours already are.
I've been 'offline' for a couple of months, I really need to get back at it. But life is so busy right now! lol

I am sending you wishes for a cooling and drying breeze..every gardener needs those some days.

Our humidity is gone, but the hot hot temps are settling in.

Great shots.

I love your micro moments Elaine...
What type of lens do you have? I've been thinking about getting one for my Nikon DSL 30

Thank you for enduring the heat and humidity and sharing these beautiful shots with us.
I share your love of all the blooms you've shown, even weeds are flowers too so the old quote says :)
Have a wonderful day Elaine.

Beautiful blooms, Elaine. Wandering around the yard and capturing the beauty all around is a wonderful way to spend some time. Same weather here and we could use some rain.
