Never Too Small











Beauty and surprises are never too small. These two rose flowers unexpected bloomed in our front garden this week. A very light misty spring shower added their tiny jewels.








One hour later


Early next morning


Surprises like this are welcome anytime!


Photographic note: All except the second last were taken with my Lumix fixed lens camera. I used my Raynox clip-on macro conversion lens with the Lumix for photos # 1, 3, and 5.

The deep red in that second shot is so beautiful. I'm sad that my Raynox does not work for a full frame sensor camera. There's a big black circle around every photo. :(

Beautiful -- early spring for roses isn't it? They are really lovely.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Sallie, our climate is mild enough that roses flower all year round which is lovely.
