Nectarine blossom. I am happy with my new little camera (just a compact Cannon). Good macro for a small, not too expensive model. I like the way the blossoms at the back are out of focus.
The crab apples are leafing up a little more each day.
Forgotten what this is called but lovely close up.
I like the way it mimics the clouds in the picture below.
Isn't Mother Nature clever. These broad bean flowers have laid out the black door mat to attract the bees. When they land their weight makes the front part of the flower move lower and the bees' backs brush against the top part where the pollen is. It is amazing how two such discrete species have evolved to form a mutually beneficial relationship.
Today, I also noticed the symmetrical way the leaves on the broad beans grow.
This one is just a little weed but I think blue flowers are all special.
And finally, to prove that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder here is a close up of some of my compost about to put to use. Yummy!
