Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists – Hello April

So it’s been awhile since I have posted – too many things going on and not enough time – but I was determined to post this weekend.  And Amy’s topic this week is definitely a fun one.

I’ve already gotten tons of pictures of  flowers the past week or so – reds, yellow, pinks and blues – that it was a little hard to decide which pictures to post but I finally decided to share these beautiful “Lady Bank” roses.

Several years ago my father had this huge Lady Bank shrub that totally claimed ownership of one side of his fence.  He gave hubby a cutting who then planted it right outside our back door.  I thought we lost it when Hurricane Matthew came through several years ago but it has come back beautifully and gets bigger and bigger each year.

There are so many different clusters of blooms and no two are identical.  Since they are located at the entrance of our breezeway, they move constantly so it takes patience – and sometimes a sweater!- to get the perfect shot.

Lady Bank Roses

DSC_0352-2

I thought we lost our lady bank roses during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016.  My dad had given us a sprig from his plant several years ago and it had matured into a beautiful plant.  Hubby replanted what was left and while it never bloomed last year, it has made up for it this year.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Yellow

Yellow 1Yellow 2Yellow 3

The idea of this challenge is to pick a subject and spend five minutes photographing it using different angles and lighting without moving the subject.  The center of this flower is so beautiful that I decided to concentrate just on it.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Purple

The rules of this challenge are to spend five minutes photographing a subject using different lighting and angles.

These purple marsh grasses are so wispy and dreamy in macro and I’m totally in love with the bokeh.
