A Tuesday Walk in the World

I’ve been planting some flower gardens, putting in some “shrubs,” and generally spending time outside this week. I’ll have pictures of the flower bed when I’m finished setting it up. Right now, it looks pretty ragged. Today, I took the camera out to see what’s blooming outside. The flower bed is still “raw” dirt covering a few seeds; nothing there, unless you like dirt!

But here is what I did find.

The hibiscus is blooming,


I used extension rings to get up close and personal with the hibiscus petal.

And so is the rhododendron that John gave me for Christmas. I still have to put it in the ground somewhere.


The honeysuckle is full of flowers, and so are the blackberries.


And the roses. . . .


Then, there are these flowers.  I don’t know what this is, but it is pretty, and it smells heavenly. I cut a bunch of branches and brought them into the house.


I used the Lensbaby Composer Pro with Sweet 35 to take these images. I did use some extension rings for some of the images.
