Any of these blown up, matted and framed would sell quickly! Ever thought of doing that as a addition to your antique shop???


Your comment cracked me up, BTW!!!

These flowers and the ones you posted below are so gorgeeous! I need to visit this place! I would have a photographers field day! You should frame some of these photos....

Insanity Kim: I thought about that and maybe we will try it! My husband makes gorgeous 'rustic' frames, so together, it might be a hit! So much to do, so little time!!

Shellmo: MSU is a great place to visit...and there were more flowers NOT blooming yet than the spring ones that were...so if you go in June or beginning of July, you will find it full. I may go back there myself then!

More beauties. Still think you need to send them in to somewhere.

Bernie said...

Your photos are just awesome. I love any kind of blue or purple flower. They are my favorites.

Wow those are SO pretty!

Ratty said...

They're all really good. I like the closeups of the inside of the flowers. I always see so many strange things in there.

Julie said...

Wow, such beautiful pictures!!!! Since I'm a Buckeye, I don't venture to Michigan much, so I enjoyed the tour! :)

Sara said...

Grannyann: I will have to go on line to find a place to see if they have contests of pictures, then. Do you know of any websites?

Bernie: Thanks! I love taking them and having others enjoy them too.

This Crazy: Thanks SO much! I have to get to your blog...I am still behind in my reading and commenting on everyone's blogs since fighting pneumonia. But I am feeling better now!

Judy: I like those colors too, that is why the Iris's are one of my favorites too, especially the bearded ones. Can't wait for my gardens to bloom. Stay tuned!

Dreamwalker: Thanks again. I love any flowers, birds or anything to do with nature pictures. We went to a waterfall today and I will be posting those pictures soon.

Ratty: I agree. I usually catch a bee in them! Anything with nature I love. Hey, I saw a black squirrel in the woods today. But he was quick to run away! I only caught his backside on camera as he was running away. ha I thought of you and your many efforts to capture them on film.

Julie: Oh, you will have to break the rules and come to Michigan. ha

Sara: Thanks! Is this little Mama Sara? How is our little Cole?? Are you getting enough sleep??
