Taken May 14

Spring has Sprung! The Botanical Garden opens May 1st every year. I buy a membership so I can go whenever I want. They have flower gardens, a huge pond/lake and trails through the woods. I usually go once a week if not more. I love walking around with my macro lens.

Those purples are delicious. Looks like it could be a cartoon of a bunch of grapes.

I wish we had a botanical garden around here. The closest one is quite a drive for me or I'd buy a membership too. This is beautiful!

I really love hyacinths, it was really cool to get one for my kindergarten classroom and let the kids watch how fast they grow. I've never seen this type. Lovely colors and little glittery bits on the buds. Great shot.

Diagonals. Purples on greens (all secondary). A very peaceful colour combination used with very active lines. But the little roundish buds hold it all together. You are good at the sharp/blur thing.

This just makes me happy - especially with the cold and gray outside.

The perfect color combination - diagonal composition works very well here!

Excellent shot of this pretty grape hyacinth - it's often hard to find a background as pretty as this, even blurred :)

Very good use of narrow DOF to provide a lovely bg. Good detail and colors. A high quality closeup!
