I Wish For Spring – 75/365

Here is another photograph of one of the tulips I was given, this time for today's Macro Monday sub-theme of Spring. Which is what I wish for. Not what I have. I loved the delicacy of the lines in the petals as well as the soft pinks, cream and green. 

I always love to read the comments made on my photographs, thank you everyone! With the construction work going on in the house my computer time is limited and so I don't get to reply to them all very quickly. Please forgive me and be sure that I will get to them and answer each one!

Gerber Daisy 3 – 74/365

There was something that really appealed to me about the fuzzy top of this wilting gerber daisy flower. Okay, so I'm almost as obsessive as Joni! (I took more photographs of the daisies on Sunday, but might spare you that for a later date.) This is a macro, but not at the 1:1, as I wanted a bit more depth of field. 

This was for Saturday's posting. I am thinking of my friend +Robin Griggs Wood at this time.

Gerber Daisy Centre – 59/365

This is a very close up (macro, 1:1 view) of the interior of one of the beautiful Gerber daisies that I was given as a gift last week. I love the way the little curled inner petals (?) look almost as if they are edible. The bits of pollen everywhere are almost untidy (where are the bees when you need them?) but of course I don’t keep indoor bees and the outdoor ones are hopefully well protected from the cold. I hope you enjoy this luscious flower and will forgive me if I have not been as interactive as usual on your posts. 😀 It has been for a very good cause. 

This past week has been so busy with other commitments that I have had no time to post the images which I have been taking. So I will do what I can to catch up in my project.
