garden photography: Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!

In April I’m looking for Macros or Close-ups in the Garden

(This month I want to see Macro photography or close-ups of anything you’d find in a garden –  so look out for unusual details) If you would like some tips then please visit the first post in the month.

If you would like to join in with Garden Photography then please take a look at my Garden Photography Page. No complicated rules 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it AprilMacros in the Garden
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag “GardenChallenge” so everyone can find the posts easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new theme comes out on the first Sunday in May.
  • Please visit the sites in the comments to see what others are posting.

This is the last week for showing me your close up images. Next week I am looking for Wild flowers at the side of the road, in a meadow, a wild flower garden, or a single flower. Photograph it however you please, maybe even take some of the previous months’ challenges into consideration. And as always I thank you for your views, likes and comments and especially your own contributions to the challenge. It has been an amazing month seeing all the macros and close up entries. I have learned a lot and hope you have enjoyed them too.

 

Michaelmas

Michaelmas, the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel (also the Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael, the Feast of the Archangels, or the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels) is a day in the Western Christian calendar which occurs on 29 September (Wikipedia)

Michaelmas Daisies or Asters are in flower at this time of the year so the flowers are associated with the start of autumn in the northern hemisphere. They come in colours from pale blue to deep lavender, pinks, mauves and white and the bees and butterflies love them.
