It seems like the paperwhites are blooming early this year.
When the paperwhites bloom it is the first blooms of the year.
I think it has to do with our weather being odder than normal.
They said today was sweaters and sunglasses which is unusual because if its cold its normally raining.
I love these flowers and the bulbs were from my great grandmother Moore’s house they were given to my grandmother who gave them to me.
These bulbs had been sitting for many years and I honestly did not think they would come up. Now I have 100’s of these beauties all over our yard.
Personally, I think they are much prettier in a large grouping.
These pictures were taken with my Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro lens.
There are many benefits of cooking with garlic and we use a lot of it it is a very healthy thing to have in your diet.
Elephant garlic is our favorite type to grow. It makes this beautiful flower then when it dies it is time to pick the garlic. When you dig it up you will find the bulbs of cloves and seeds for the next year.
I truly love photographing these blooms, especially in macro.
Even I can find the beauty in a weed and it’s flowers.
I love taking pictures of flowers but especially using my macro lens because it shows all the little details we might not see otherwise.
These are some of my favorite weeds to take pictures of. They are called ” Daisy Fleabane” but the flowers are truly amazing when you look at them up close.
Every time after a rain we have mushrooms pop up and it is always in the same spots in the yard.
Sometimes it is those little tiny ones and sometimes it is these. Since I am not a mushroom expert I have no idea what kind they are.
They say if you pull them up by the root they will not come back this is NOT true I have done that numerous times.
I love trying to photograph them at different angles but it is honestly hard to capture their true beauty.
Roses have this softness about them they are so delicate and pretty but the petals are very fragile.
I love knockout roses mainly because they are much easier to grow and they require less attention than standard roses.
My favorite time to photograph flowers is in the early morning light when they still have dew on the petals.
I planted Dahlia bulbs for the first time there were 20 bulbs but only 12 of them came up. I think one package must have been bad.
This was my very first bloom and I love the colors of this flower. I waited a few days to take the picture and I almost waited too long.
I am looking forward to the future blooms to see what colors they are. These flowers are gorgeous and my macro lens allowed me to really show off this flowers details.
