Weeds, seeds and Wildflowers..

For some time now, I’ve been wanting to photograph the wonderful and whimsical world of weeds. I suppose I do anyway, as there are many seed heads, dandelions and more to be found on this blog.

I love watching beautiful flowers bud and grow, even to their last petal or beyond – and weeds are pretty interesting too – in fact some of them are quite delightful. They are often overlooked as a thing of beauty.

Does anyone remember the ‘Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady’?

I loved that book – I remember perusing the pages when I was young, thinking how wonderful the beautiful illustrations were.Β  Well, now I’m amazed to say, I feel like I’m finding those pages come to life – and finally noticing what is really tucked away in little ‘overlooked’ corners, here and there.

I thought I’d share a few of my finds from this past 2 weeks.

It’s so good to be back looking closely through the lens – I want to do more of this – finding more of nature’s little mysteries πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Carrie – oh yes, so interesting!
      It is good to stop and ‘see’ πŸ˜ƒ
      I know you do the same – thanks for your kind words.

  2. I love this perspective and your showcase of things often overlooked. In the first photo of the dandelion you bring to life what I love about macro: its ability to transform. From a distance some things just look so familiar but up close and personal they can become something else and open our minds to the secret lives of beautiful. The dandelion tufts become something non-plant like, like soft beautiful hair.

    I think they’re all lovely, but that’s my favorite. πŸ™‚
