I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers.  ~Claude Monet

I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.


  1. Oh my! I’m speechless.

  13. Spectacular Margie! What a great eye you have, the colour and detail are incredible!

  14. Amazing, those flowers! Super macros Margie. I have to say that Georgia O’Keefe popped in my mind instantly too :) I spent all day yesterday outside and a good part of it was spent putting happy flower faces in pots. I loved it. Well! Except today my back is crabbing at me :D

  15. Stunning! I was feeling very dull & lack lustre today. Your photos have change all that! Thank you!

  16. Great detail so close up! What camera and lens do you use to get this clarity?

  17. Each picture is so beautiful and rich in colors! Thanks for sharing. Regards.

  18. Lovely macros! Such glorious colors!

  19. Great macro shots of the lovely flowers! I love nature’s color palette – such variety and so vibrant.

  20. Wow! #6 is a terrific photo, with the center peeking out over the profusion of red exterior petals. Stunning. I agree, this time of year is spectacular, with purple crocus, daffodils, tulips, and plum blossoms. Thanks for sharing a string of gorgeous photos.

  21. so very pretty! lovely rich range of color!

  22. So wonderful…love the close-up. The white with yello is my favourite! Making my paintbrush tingle.

  23. Shooting simply the center of the flower offers such an interesting effect, Margie. Very clever. Nice Shots and I like the way you iced the cake by adding the Monet to finish off your post. Good job! ;)

  24. margie, you’ve heard of georgia o’keefe, right? those photos remind me of her work. close-up and POWERFUL. thanks for sharing!

You know how much I love to see your smiling faces here!
