A Year in Flowers

During the cold winter months, I eagerly anticipate the return of warmer weather, sunshine and flowers blooming. This past year the blooms were incredibly abundant and beautiful.

I love being outdoors and close to nature, and I look forward to a new year of blooms and colors in the coming months. These are just a few from last year that make these bleak winter days a little brighter.

  2. What fabulous photographs. You have captured the flowers so well. What kind of camera do you use? I am hoping to get a new one for better close ups, and welcome any advice.

      Thank you so much!! What a wonderful compliment! I am very much an amateur at photography. I have a Canon Powershot SX40 HS. I wanted a camera that wasn’t too complicated with a built in zoom lens. It really does take good pictures for my needs and not terribly expensive. Hope that helps. Thank again! πŸ˜ƒ

      1. Thank you. I have an older model of Powershot with only a 4x zoom. I would love a newer model. I have taken a note of yours.

    ‘SW,’ Your love of color is all over these beautiful images. Particularly impressive is your attention to flower details, that makes your flower shares standout. Butterflies is my thing, and I suggest in concealed msg ((( that you explore capturing their eyes, to make your photos even more enjoyable))).

      Thank you! I love butterflies too! One of these main reasons I plant so many flowers is to see the butterflies. I’m slowly learning to take images with more detail and I will definitely give that a try! Great advice! Thanks again! πŸ˜ƒ
