DesleyJane – a lovely arty scientist now living in Melbourne – is also a wonderful photographer and a huge macro fan. She has a new weekly challenge called “regularrandom“ for anyone to join in with which involves spending 5 minutes with the subject matter.
This year I had a head start with my sweet-peas, but not all the seeds I planted germinated so I wasn’t expecting as many flowers as last year. This is the first tiny bunch I picked in late June. Beautiful rich jewel-like colours and a pure white. All smelling absolutely gorgeous.
On a brief visit back home last weekend I picked dozens of the blooms, but didn’t have time to photograph them. I only hope by the time I get home again there will still be some left!
All photos were taken using my Olympus OM-D E-10 camera and 40-150mm lens, hand-held.
