Sunday Selections #5 botanical edition

Once again, I am joining in with Kim at Frog Ponds Rock in posting some pretty pics of my life….

The bulk of photos I uploaded to my 365 project this week were either uninspiring fillers or fantastic portraits of my children … I won’t bore you with the former and I don’t post the latter on my blog.

So I post the one half decent entry from this week…
The jewel within on 365 Project

and a few other taken a while back…

  3. actually, the sedum photo with the water drop caught my attention, but I like them all. very nice collection of macros.

    Beautiful shots. Inspiring too. I’ll be off outside with my camera as soon as I’ve hit the ‘post comment’ button 😉

    These are gorgeous. Macro photography used to be my passion and that first shot – the jewel within – is magical. Really beautiful photos.

    I do love the jewel within. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everyone … it seems my throw-away pic “the jewel within” is popular both here and on 365….
    Ironically, it’s one of my least favourite of these as I am more a fan of strong colour like the vivid hippy 🙂
    (I find it fascinating how people react differently to colour).

    … but I am so grateful for everyone’s positive comments. I really do get so much out of photography 🙂

    What’s growing: Strawberries by the bowlful; cherries from trees planted less than a year ago; Gala apples are about half inch (12-15 mm) diameter and will be yummy some months from now. The blueberries have been devoured by the squirrels and the toddlers. Flowers: roses, cosmos, snapdragons, clover, alyssum….
