Blue Macro Monday January 6, 2014


Welcome to my first Monday post of the new year, today I am linking with-

Blue Monday hosted by Smiling Sally

Macro Monday 2 hosted by Gemma Wiseman

I Heart Macro hosted by Laura

Mandarin Orange Monday hosted by Lorik

Monday Mellow Yellows hosted by Gemma Wiseman

Tonight it will be below freezing again, but then we are supposed to be due some of that Pacific Northwest mild winter weather consisting of rain with clouds that insulate the ground and raise the temperatures above freezing.   Winter has not taken long to be tiresome so I am going to indulge in some Dreams of Spring, visions of some flowers that I am awaiting.

Primroses-



Hellebores, whose down-facing flowers hide interesting interiors-


Tahiti-

I am temporarily without a camera but expect a new one soon, it will be fun to see what develops!

Happy New Year, Hannah

or cameras are macro

    1. Thanks! For a fancy daffodil, it has done well coming back every year, I've had it for many years. It is very elegant.

    1. Thanks, Gunilla! I bought a bunch of new hybrids last year so I'm really looking forward to how they do this year. Now I just feel the lack of a really good double one.

  4. The interior of the hellebore looks like a mini tiger lily. Beautiful series of photos.

    1. Thanks, Joy, tonight I get to finish up my seedling transplanting, it gives me the illusion of still being a gardener when things are so cold and frosty outside.

    Dream of Spring is about all we can do - 20F at 4:00pm here in north Mississippi. Tonight's forecast is down in the single digits.
