I had a wonderful visit to a greenhouse yesterday where it’s always summer! Plants and flowers blooming and through the glass the snow is still piled high. A delightful time until my cell phone fell out of my pocket and into the waterfall where I was trying to do a little re-arranging of the potted flowers. Ahh…there’s always something interesting about an outing with the camera! :-)

There were the most beautiful hanging baskets of geraniums….a flower seen with such frequency as to render it almost common. Yet when I saw the way the macro lens picked up the tiny stamens and the veining, this ‘common’ bloom appeared to me to be quite a remarkable thing.

    Oh I like this! I like the way you filled the frame with just a couple of the little flowers -nicely done! I like it framed in white too!

    How beautiful Holly, the stamens are like a little star in the middle of the delicate pink flower.

    You have done really well with a difficult to shoot flower – works really well on the black background as well.
