Hints of Petals

Noticing the tiniest of details

and the intermingling of colours as they break the rules of staying neatly in their place.
Where is their place?
Wherever they choose to go!

The nurturing of a small bud as it stretches to be free of its leafy confines
Can you perceive the movement?

Tranquil petals

The treasure within

The chalice of life


  1. Oh Zinnia!!! What unbelievable photos of your tulips!! Your macro work is stunningly beautiful, and beyond! The tulip colors are soft yet vibrant and warm and springlike! I'm about speechless now! I do LOVE the very last tulip. These would make a wonderful grouping on a wall. Have a wonderful, wonderful day!!

  2. You do capture some amazing macros! Of course, you've chosen one my favorite color combos to feature -- there is a special rose that has a similar blending of orange, pink, and yellow. So beautiful! My fave is the last one too.

  3. Your photos look like beautiful art...paintings! I'm glad you are going to write cards this month! How sweet of you! ♥

    Beautiful colours too.

  8. This is like diving into a bowl of icecrean sundae: hand me a spoon, somebody :-)
