These beautiful white geraniums overwintered in the house but they can't be tricked. They know spring is here and began to bloom. It is still not warm enough outdoors for them.

Soon they will enjoy the warm spring sunshine.

Macro Flowers Saturday #3-Beautiful daffodils

Welcome to Macro Flowers Saturday!

This is daffodil day for me.
Yes, this first picture is from the same photo session as my header photo. I love the orange center of these beautiful spring flowers.

Don't be jealous, we don't have them in our gardens. These are from abroad, Holland I think.

Our daffodils are much smaller but they have a wonderful scent, unlike these daffodils from the picture.

Bee in the middle of a magnolia - flower pictures

I think, the middle of a beautiful magnolia flower has many visitors.
I was in a great hurry to capture that little guy inside, but soon I realized that he is not going anywhere. He ended his way in the middle of a magnolia,
"each wreathed in the other's arms."

Finally, in the last two day, we had a little sunshine too. Look at this two spotted ladybug (Adalia bipunctata) climbing the pussy willow!

Yellow carnation flowers-pictures of flowers

Carnation flowers are one of the most beloved flowers in any season, even in spring.
Yellow carnations are joyful, warm colored flowers, a burst of sunshine in our homes.

However, these gorgeous flowers convey a negative message when gifted.

Check the symbolism of yellow carnations before you send them to someone!

Geraniums are everywhere in the spring. I love them for their big, bright bloom and also because they are so easy to grow.

This pink geranium has overwintered indoors but now, in the warm spring sunlight it looks much more stronger and prettier.

Heart of a blue Iris flower-macro photography

This is the heart of a blue Iris flower, or is it the mouth of it?
Macro photos reveal another world, another view to us.
Sometimes a very strange view, with details that we can't see otherwise.
Just look at the Iris close-up, isn't it strange?
