Canon XTI, Canon Macro 60mm, ISO 200, F11.0

Hi Photo Friends,

Since you all are always so fun strolling my lakes with me, I would like to have you take a stroll through my flower garden as it starts to bloom. Around the 4th of July its at its prettiest!

In the month of May I finally start seeing some of my perennial flowers start to bloom. I have a perennial flower garden with around 235 different flowers. One day I decided to count them Whew, what a job! I keep a flower tally sheet in alphabetical order of all their names. I am always digging holes! I think the most flowers in my garden are BeeBalm, Summer Phlox and Lemon Queen. I just love them together.

The past few years I have been taking close up photos of every flower and color for my flower book to be! They were documentary pictures so one day I could put them all together in a book. Now I am going to start photographing them in an artsy way! So these three pictures are my first experiments. I am in the learning process. So have patience with me! Hopefully with all your help I will improve!

Pix 1..

Delphinium "Summer Nights"

Clematis

Pix 3..

Iris "Harvest of Memories"

This Iris was played with changing the color of the background. The background was mostly white and obviously you can see a bit of ring flash shadow.

As Always, thanks for taking a stroll. There is not a large selection in May. It's been a cool Spring. But soon all the colors will be popping so beautifully!

Hope you liked!

I have 'Bee Balm' in my flower bed, Rasberry flavored

I like the Clematis shot, entertaining look to it.
fun play to the shot of the Iris, rustic feel
Delphinium is soft and moody

Lots in bloom, good things to come I am sure!

They're all very nice, and the subdued colors produce a gentle, soft effect.

A nice set BB. Even though the whites are blown in the Clematis shot, It's still my pick. It works well as is ~ Ron

Karl thank you for taking a look!
You described my three flowers exactly!
I wanted the iris to look rustic ;-)
I have all the different colors of BeeBalm except for white. I can't find anyone who sells it. I notice my hummers turn their noses up at all my colors of BeeBalm except for the real fire engine red color. My red beebalms are 6 feet tall!
Thanks again!

Nice flower, BeeBalm. That 60mm F2.8 Macro is my favorite. I missed that lens when I move to 1.3x crop.

Good, better, best, Bee.
#2 is unigue to me, but the colors of #3 are so luscious I give it the nod.
