The beauty of a weed

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.

More Mushrooms

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.

Pretty in pink

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.

My first Dahlia

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 IĀ 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.
