Just A Closer Look...

...At The Picket Fence Flowers

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay

Enjoys the air it breathes!

  8. Sue,
    Just beautiful pictures. I am loving closeups. The pictures with the bees are absolutely wonderful.

    On another note - I finally finished two socks. Not a pair. They are quite snug so I am going to regroup on needle size and pattern.


  9. I love taking photos of flowers, too! Yours are incredible! We're still waiting for hollyhock blooms. Our growing season is way too short. Glad to see you back, dear Sue!

  10. Absolutely beautiful photography!!!

  11. Then, I must thank the flowers for your beautiful photos. But, I believe your eye for beauty has quite a bit to do with the fabulous outcome.♥

  12. Very pretty, love the ones with the bees!!!
