Les Fleurs du Printemps

Every once in a while I just want to publish something "pretty".  No politics, no opinions, no jokes, no controversies.  

Over the years, my husband has worked on close-up photography with flowers.  I like to share my favorites each Spring.

I think I'll have to bug him to take new ones.  I'm the flower lover.  He takes so many photographs, it's hard to coax him to send to me, especially if he hasn't worked on them.

Wonderful shots. Funny that your hubby doesn't love the selection. Maybe next year he can choose? :-)

CaliforniaGirl500 said...

II understand. They are some of your early work but I love them.

Cole Scott said...

Well, if you mean "2nd to the last" from the top down, then, yes, those are Pansies in the Spring dew. If you mean the mixed set of primary colors, 2nd from the bottom up, that's an arrangement of.
Anemone, Daisies & whatnot.

wait there's too many reds in the set.  Who ever decide red/blue states?  How about green/brown, yellow/purple, polka dots/stripes.
Sorry I get so used to reading something political here I had to take a jab.
I like the second to last one - are those pansies?

CaliforniaGirl500 said...

Thank you. I look forward to posting them each Spring. I can't recall if the 1st photo is a begonia, double tulip or what?

I think I'll take deer and aphids over Black Flies and mosquitoes.  They are the  fiercest things ever back here...oh, yeah...and the ticks.  UGH UGH UGH

Judy Sebern said...

Love these..... is he making some note cards with these?  I'd buy some!

DJan Stewart said...

Absolutely beautiful! I especially love the first one. Thank you for sharing. :-)

Just exquisite.  I have to battle deer and aphids so it's  nice to enjoy yours.

He's never mentioned it.  I'd like to see that.  I'd use them as well.
