I just love macro photos of the centers of flowers. What beautiful photos. I think the Daisy is my favorite. There is just something about them that makes me smile :-)

Absolutely gorgeous! So Georgia O'Keefe! Great post!

Beautiful shots, Lona -- from within and outside, too. :)

Grace Peterson said...

Wow Lona~~ A perfectly apropos title for paying tribute to the more personal side of our floral friends. I've got a lavender-pink Streptocarpus but every time I see a photo of your 'Roulette Red' I get a serious case of plant lust. Just beautiful!

Oh Lona these are all so pretty! Feels like summer looking at them :)

Oh, Lona, those are beautiful photographs. The streptocarpus was absolutely luminous and the view of the cleome unique and sweet. Thank you for sharing!

Stay warm!

Super super gorgeous!! Magnificent post!

Kate said...

Oooh! You should frame these. Just lovely. Imagine that Gerbera Daisy blown up to poster size!!

That really brightened up this dreary old gray day. Beautiful pictures Lona.

Ah, such beautiful pictures of flowers -- which remind us that this awful snow and cold will soon be gone and our gardens once again will be abloom!

Oh how well I remember the beauty of summer's blooms in closeup! *sigh* How long till summer? No, wait, don't tell me. I haven't even ordered my seeds yet, just drooled over them in catalogs. Although I did start a windowsill herb garden. Didn't work last year, but I'm a sucker!

Carol............. said...

My kind of photos...absolutely gorgeous!

Beautiful colorful close-ups.
Ah...the dreams of summer,so sweet.
Your chilly yet artful header is what we have now. Sorta sad :(

How different they look up so close. I wouldn't have recognized the pelargonium, for one. The rhododendron is my favorite. What a delightfully lush yet delicate color.
