You Capture - Flowers

Thursday, September 23

Seems like I haven't done a You Capture Challenge all summer, but I found some flowers this week.  I think my hydrangea is going to make it!  Here is the first bloom since it was dug up and and replanted by the guys who took down my neighbors tree.  

I'm loving all of the sunflowers in the neighborhood.

There are plenty of roses blooming, but my daughter dried these from our rose bush a couple of months ago. Here is me practicing with the macro lens.  I need to work on my focusing and shaky hands.

Here is a poppy that my daughter picked and stuck in a blue plastic water bottle.

Next's week challenge is togetherness, which is kind of ironic since I'm headed out of town on my own for the weekend for the first time ever (my oldest is 9!).

Very pretty!! I really like your orange flower. I just put some pictures on a site called "The Brenda Photo Challenge" and this month the goal is orange. It might be fun for you to put it on her blog:-)

Love, love, LOVE the first one! Absolutely perfect! So glad the hydrangea is going to make it!

That poppy is very interesting. The first flower is unique and the photo is very well done.

My favorites are the roses. I love photographs that show beauty and deteriorating beauty all at once. It is so honest.

And thank you for reminding me of the You Capture challenges. I need to get on the ball and do one of those again.
