Its blog carousel time again for me – I love being a part of this monthly challenge with a wonderful group of talented photographers. I will admit though – I missed last months entirely (doh!) and time got away from me again this month (double doh!). But at least this months theme is a familar one for me, since my photography “hobby” is playing with my macro lens and shooting nice and close. So I decided to revisit some past images, that all used macro techniques AND that celebrate spring (the nice weather inspired me to do that – not the fact that I have been too busy to get outside and enjoy it yet…insert whiney sad face here…)
The way the blog carousel works is our group of creative photographers pick a theme each month, we do a blog post and then we link to the blog post of the next person in the lineup – follow the links all the way through to see all the fantastic images (and knowing these ladies, its a guarantee of loveliness).
If you would like to have a peek at our past carousel posts, click HERE for a list of posts.
Here are my spring things in macro…
This first one is my flower box from last year – how lovely it looked when I first created it. And I also remember how not so lovely it was looking a month later when my efforts to water them regularly fell through (as it always does…sigh).
Here is my first shoot of asparagus from last spring (I am anxiously awaiting the new crop because its so amazingly delicioso!). And my lilac…lovely scented lilac…come on spring…
Bleeding hearts, hostas, chives, ferns, tulips…and green peas!! I can’t wait for those!
And here is my lovely peony…it starts in spring and welcomes summer in June with the big, fragrant blossoms.
I hope you will continue on our blog carousel and see what the other ladies are up to this month. Next in line is Dena Robles, who has a wonderful artistic eye that is clearly evident her photography – I always enjoy checking out her work. I know you will enjoy her and all the rest.
