I decided to take a few minutes this week to “smell the roses” until I remembered that I don’t have any in my garden. I do, however, have a decent assortment of blooms bursting forth throughout the yard and in numerous pots. I love taking photos and trying to capture the tiniest details. (I haven’t tried my new macro lense for my SLR camera, as I can’t hold the camera with my splint on. Eventually I’ll be able to give that a try.)
Here’s a little bug who was resting on the screen while we had dinner. I like getting close to insects, especially when they’re on the other side of a screen.
Here are peonies from my friend Valerie’s garden. I wonder at their complex structure and amazing beauty. Humans are fooling themselves if they think they can do a better job.
