Mini Grape Hyacinth
Since SO many of us are having miserable experiences with snow and ice and such right now, with great Intention I put together a post in hopes it would lift spirits. So …..
On the 13th (2 days ago), one could find me in my gardens on my belly or knees with my camera. I was astonished that despite this consistent cold we have been experiencing, my flowers have begun needless to say, to wake up. I just looked in awe, not knowing how they are doing this in these not so friendly temperatures and weather.
Soon soon I softly hear. Soon for what I ask? Warmth and sun would really be nice!
I should be grateful for this “break” before pandemonium breaks out with me running trying but not succeeding, in capturing the absolute Beauty that just bursts forth from my gardens. And also in every year, I warn you ahead of time that I don’t know how I am going to open my gardens and be here at the same time. Yet every year I seem to somehow do the “impossible”. Here I am every year running to get the glorious color in my gardens, opening my gardens up (very hard work!), and trying to publish posts. Let’s see how I do this year! (wink)
Just enjoy what I was able to find, treasures to behold with Promises to come. Keep in mind that what you just viewed are truly very tiny evidence of New Growth in my gardens. Some are so tiny that no matter how steady I held my camera, the images did not come out clearly. I do not have Image Stabilizer on my macro 100mm, which means to you non-photographers, if my hands are not rock solid, the picture will blur. That and the wind I contend with, each and every picture is a study in perfection.
Do I applaud me for my endeavors? You bet I do! Just getting down on the cold ground and laying on it with a camera in my hands some would not do. Have a great day, dear friends, despite the weather many of us are experiencing. Hang in there!
