Doesn't being in the garden sometimes make you feel like this, all dreamy and fuzzy and bright, wondrous things all around?

I know it does for me.


(I was playing around with extension tubes to get some extreme macro shots, and it turns out that I need much more practice. Or to use a different lens. Or probably both.)

You do get those days sometimes, when the garden becomes a dream....

Unique shots, nice departure from your usual style!

I just had two margaritas so I'm not sure if this is fuzzy or if it is my eyes. What is the purple feathery thing.

Jenny: that's an extreme closeup of what I believe is Tradescantia virginiana (spider lily).

I dunno--those macro shots look great to me! 6th and 7th from the bottom especially.

Hoover: Thanks! Sixth from bottom is some sort of white-flowered Allium, quite tall with long-lasting blooms. Seventh from bottom is the inflorescence of Pennisetum 'Karley Rose'.
