Flowers


As some of you know flowers are one of my most favorite things in the world. I love looking at the colors, textures, and uniqueness of each one. Thru the summer I am going to try to add another flower picture along with each blog I do to share my favorite shots with you. I encourage all you readers to share your favorites as well. This gives all of us something to try to do. Catch that most prized flower shot possible. I will also toss in a few shots of my other favorite things too some may be things you didn't know about me. Good luck and hope you enjoy the shots yet to come!

This picture was taken today in my back yard. It is of my Clematis....I believe it's the Jackmanii Superba haha I will have to look tomorrow to find out exactly what variety it is. If you click on the picture thru this entry it will enlarge it. From there if you center the flower just right to me, (anyway) it could almost pass for a painting. I love the marbling of the shades of purples on the petals. And to be able to see the fallen pollen pieces is amazing. I used the Macro setting on the camera. WOW. I didn't know I was that good haha.

On Mother's Day, Alex and I took our moms to the Botanical Gardens. It was really beautiful. I think you would really love it there!

I knew that was clematis! It's beautiful. I use that macro setting almost always. It's great.
