Macro Month – Day 11 – Dandelion

We have dandelions all over our garden, so it goes without saying that one of these days I would tale a photo of one, but to get a different angle is the key. We have a huge hole in our garden, that one day will be a pond, so I went in and took this photo from a low angle, without having to lie down on the ground. The sky was grey and boring, but I like the slight high key look.

Macro Month – Day 4 – Aloe Vera

A series of macro photos of our aloe vera from the garden, we were out walking in the neighbourhood a few months ago and found thrown on the road a couple of aloe vera plants which we picked up and took home and planted, they are thriving.

Macro Month – Day 2 – Red Flower

Day two. I have no idea of the name of so many flowers so, I will often just call them by their colour. This particular flower is a favourite of one of the long tailed hummingbirds we have, but there is no way I can catch a photo of the bird and the flower, they don’t spend enough time feeding here.

We have an apple tree in the garden, it was planeted 3 years ago and still it does nothing, it is will only a couple of sticks, but the blooms are beautiful. And, no, there are no apples yet.
