Simply Amazing







Sometimes I feel like my heart's about to burst in amazement and praise for God's incredible creations. Today a nashi pear flower is opening on our little tree. When I have a closer look I'm blown away at it's intricate beauty.




The first two photos were taken early this morning, the third a few hours later as the stamens have been opening. Wow....lost for words again....




UPDATE: In today's late afternoon light. Sigh...

Look into the heart of a flower an you will see god in action. I am trying to remember whether my Nashi has already flowered. Must go and check in the morning. Passionfruit is flowering right now and I was going crazy over my Christmas cactus a couple of hours ago. Magnificent macros of your Nashi flowers.
