Gardening Upclose


At this time of the year we gardener's have a chance
to go through the archives of pictures that were gathered
all through the growing season and clean them out.
I want to share a few of the pictures that were taken up
close this year.

























































































































Happy Gardening Everyone!

I loved seeing all your up close pictures! Seeing the Spring bloomers just gets me more anxious for them. I'm wondering if we can just skip Winter? :)

Lona, you have so many beautiful pictures of all your flowers. And such a nice variety too.

Ian said...

Stunning. Thanks for sharing them.

Kelly said...

I LOVE your Christmas header......and dreaming of all the spring and summer flowers you have posted there. They are gorgeous.

Those are beautiful. It's amazing how when some flowers bloom then inside there are tiny blooms. Like a Zinnia has. Helen

I love your close-ups! it is funny how we notice the little things when we have our camera handy...and how many photos we all do take! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful to see some brilliant color this time of year. We just got our first snow, and I am craving color already.

What kind of camera do you have? My four-year-old Nikon CoolPix has a close-up feature for flowers, but I don't think I can get anything as nice what you get on yours. Just lovely!

Beautiful pictures, isn't it fun to look back on the summer blooms? Your forget me nots are adorable. They are also on my ever growing list of 'to be added'.

Catherine: I am for voting to skip winter. Wishing my life away ;-) Time goes fast enough.

RG: Thank you. So many flowers and so little space ;-)

Ian: Hello, thanks so much for dropping by!

Kelly: Thank you so much. I was trying to get into the spirit of it all ;-)

Helen: I know girl it amazes me sometimes when a closeup captures all of those tiny little parts of a bloom.

Tootsie: I do not know what I am going to do with them all.The number keeps rising even with all of the ones I delete.

Balisha: I could never be as good as Georgia O'Keeffe she could paint pictures with her camera.

Jen: Yeah, you got snow. I am really kidding ;-) Hope you got enough to at least be pretty.


Sabrina: I use a Canon Rebel xti. I wish I had better lenses with stabilizers on them. I am getting too shaky. Instead of the Shakiest gun in the west I am the shakiest camera ;-)

Rebecca; Those lists you know take on to growing all by their selves. Mine does anyway ;-)
