My wife’s herbs and spice plants are really flourishing. Thanks a very rainy spring, her garden is growing like it is in a rain forest.
Like our sage plant, we also allowed the parsley from last year to “winter-over”. Last season’s growth is going to seed now, while the new plants are coming along very nicely.
The breeze finally calmed down enough this morning to allow me to catch this very closeup macro shot in the garden. These seeds are really tiny. Notice the fine strands of spider web between the seed stalks (the spider was nowhere to be found).
This photo was captured on June 20th, 2011, with a Canon EOS 10D camera through a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was at 1/20th of a second with an aperture of f/4.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 100. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a Manfrotto 222 head.
Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
