Thank you Bloom, I'm pleased you enjoy visiting. It's a delight to be able to share photos.

Giga, the spider is very tiny really, it just looks big with the macro lens.

Very beautiful pictures and it's nice to see flowers and many colors. Here we have winter yet, but now we are waiting for spring.
Have a nice day

Lovely macros though I quickly scrolled past that white spider LOL. That bromeliad one is so colourful.....I presume it's a type of Achemea?

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Yes Rosie, it is a bromeliad, I think it may be an Achemea as you suggest. It was here when we bought the house and flowers after a rainy season.
