So, finding different photos from different angles is beginning to become a challenge at only half way through the month. But these rose buds should provide some interesting shots over the coming days.
Carnation, love them, such lovely colours, this has been budding for a few days now and there are a few other buds around it, so I am sure there will be more photos of this carnation in the future.
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.
We have some carnations in the garden, they are one of the few flowers that really thrive here, with buds all year round, so expect a series of these.

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.

And here we are at the start of Macro Month – Day 1 – Apple blossom.

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.
