Color is my passion...so not too surprising that I am drawn to macro photography. This is a very close shot of a begonia from my husband's garden. I am trying a new lens for my smart phone...yep, took this shot with my phone not my camera. Don't you love technology!
We planted one more rose for our garden this week. I saw a gorgeous rose at the nursery and I just had to have it. I love the red & white striped rose I have, and this is yellow, orange, and red stripe! Good thing we have a large yard, just too many plants to choose from.
The roses in our garden are just looking fantastic this week. As I will confess to anyone, I didn't get the gardening capabilities in my family. So, I pick out the roses, my husband helps me with the planting and putting in drip irrigation, and nature does most of the rest.
I love them all, and we are fortunate that roses grow here without any fuss at all. My favorite today are the red and white striped roses in the top photo that are called "4th of July." Pretty amazing climbers that I hope will maybe even take over our yard. ..
Gardens & Flowers
I love spending time in gardens & admiring the flowers and plants. Ironically, I am a terrible gardener. So, I stick to painting coins with flowers on them, much safer.
