"The Earth Laughs in Flowers..."


...Ralph Waldo Emerson



I won't be around a lot this week. My grandson and granddaughter are staying with us until Thursday evening. They will be in school and swim lessons and ballet - I'm going to be doing a lot of running.

I hope you will enjoy these pictures that I took.

























~HAVING FUN WITH FLICKR~

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful photos!!! What kind of camera do you have? I am in the market for a new one, and I would really like one that takes close ups like yours, as I photograph lots of flowers as well. I LOVE to take pics of them, but my camera just does not take really good close up shots most of the time, they tend to get blurry.

Gosh you must have a great camera - lovely photos :-)

The photos are beautiful.

Heidi said...

Wow Deborah! You are a master at taking photos of flowers. They are so pretty that I think I can hear that bumblebee buzz and smell the garden.

Hugs ~

Hi, Deborah! Thank you for visiting me--so nice to meet you and find your pretty blog! These floral treats you give us today are just beautiful...I will think of these as I go through my day. Have a lovely week with your grandchildren visiting! Happy Summer Days :o)

Gorgeous pictures! Have a wonderful time with your grandbabies!

Deborah I think the same bee was on my Lantana just yesterday - I was out there frantically 'snapping' him before he flew off to your garden!!! The photos are fabulous.

Well, see you have a busy week planned - enjoy it with the children. Jasmin is with her mom who's on vacation this week - so I'll miss her. Bob goes to Boston tomorrow and I hope to meet Vanessa at Brier Creek after dropping him at the airport - we're going to 'do' Homegoods together, maybe head over to see the gals at SuzAnna's - would be great if you could join us, any chance? Call me if you can.

Hugs - Mary.

Deborah, these pictures are spectacular. Thank you for sharing them.

Have a wonderful week.

Margie said...

Thank you for answering my question about your camera! I have to laugh because that's the same kind of camera I have! I do manage to get some good ones with it, like the pink peony on my blog, but alot of them get blurry. Hubby says maybe a tripod would help. I'll have to try the cropping trick, thank you for sharing that with me! I'll let you know if I find another camera!

Margie said...

Hi Deborah, I'm stopping by to let you know I tagged you. I hope you don't mind, I don't know too many people, so I chose among those I've "talked" to already, and those who left me comments on my first Pink Saturday! (plus it gave me another reason to stop by and admire your wonderful flower photos again!)

Mary said...
