Nice photos! I always stare at flowers like these (the hydrangea especially) and get impatient waiting for them to keep opening buds. The watched pot never boils.

Great photos. I'm always fascinated with watching flower buds and checking their progress. My neighbors probably think I'm nuts as I stand and stare at bloom-less plants.

Rosie, thank you so much.

Mike, LOL, know what you mean.

Carol, I do the same :D

It amazing how those little buds explode and become a wonderful globe of color.
Your macro photos are wonderful, you capture so interesting and new flowers always.
Have a great weekend!

Interesting in the last shot how the cluster of buds is heart-shaped.

Nice series of shots.

Ann said...

Gorgeous macro shots. That first one almost looks like a pinecone before it opens up. The third has some fabulous colors in it.

Wonderful photos. Is the top one the sanquinium?

Judy said...

Beautiful! My favourite is the middle one - all the tiny buds in so many pastel colours!

The detail here is unbelievable, Joanne. Sometimes it's hard to tell whether the flower is just opening or whether it's the seed pods I'm looking at but either way they're gorgeous.
