Mid to late summer, I took some time to wander in my garden
and take a close-up look at the flowers in bloom.
Today, if you have gloomy or cold or white snowy weather,
think back to last season.
Here, I will help you......
The pistils inside the orange day lilies were amazing!:
I LOVED that the bee "matched" the flower!:
And this fuzzy cutie laying in the "fireworks" center of this pink flower
just begged my lens to take a shot!:
He deserved a closeup!:
The Hollyhocks were so delicate...weaved, see-thru petals, that looked like silk woven threads:
An orange explosion, led by golden dustmop centers!:
Speaking of explosions.....
the center of these flowers looked like fireworks to me!:
Whereever you are today,
don't forget to look at the DETAILS
they are amazing.
You just need to take the time to notice.

Thanks for coming to support me with my new photography project! I am adding you to my photography blog roll.
I love these photos...I'm ready for my close up, Mr DeMille!
wow some really beautiful textures in the flowers...really like that second yellow one with the bee...
My goodness, you take absolutely gorgeous photos! I love these close-ups of Mother Nature showing off! lol!
I know I'm being a pain in the posterior, but I'm pretty sure that the parts of the flowers are named "pistil" not "piston". Just fyi.
These are some of the most amazing series of flower pics that I have seen in a long time. Great captures.
Wonderful shots. The close ones are great.
Thanks for this bouquet of beauty. I love close-up shots.
A bit of summer on a cold winter day.
Ah the beauty of nature, God's little gifts. Thanks for sharing.
No snow here, but finally colder temps.
Your bit-of-late-summer, is always welcome.
