Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. With the good amount of rain we had these past couple of weeks, along with the many work and personal matters I had to handle, I haven’t found many opportunities to grab my camera and snap some new photos. Fortunately, this gives me some time to go back and look at all the photos I’ve taken in the past few months and display them on my website.

Here are a couple of photos of small pink flowers that look very pretty in close-up mode. I believe these are manuka flowers, from New Zealand. Remember you can click on each image for a larger view.

If you live where spring is taking its sweet time to show up, I hope this gives you a little taste of what it will look like when it gets there.

Today I’m taking part in Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos. I recently visited the San Diego Botanic Garden and got the opportunity to photograph a lot of blooms. Below are a couple of flowers I was able to capture on camera. The thing is, I have no idea what type of flowers they are, and they weren’t labeled. What can I say? I’m a photographer and clearly not an horticulturalist.

For each flower below, I’ll show you what the plant looks like, as well as a macro of the flower itself. If you know the name of these plants, please share your knowledge in the Comments section. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

The first plant looks like a succulent but that’s how far I can go. That soft pink flower is very pretty.

The next flowers belong to some kind of shrub about six feet tall. There were a lot of bloom on that tree, here are just a few.

Here’s a close-up of one of the purple flowers. They don’t smell but they sure look nice.
