Fresh and New for Macro Saturday

This is just a close up and not a macro of a new rose to my garden. I was just too lazy to change lenses.  It is a floribunda called Fairy Tale.  I love the salmon coloured blooms

This lovely bi-colour blueIriis in the front flower bed.  It had just stopped raining when I took it so you can see a few raindrops on the petals.   Please visit flowers-macrophotography for more wonderful closeups.  Have a great weekend.  Valerie

The rose is fabelous, I can almost get the scent of it here, but I just love the Iris, never saw one so nice, the colours in it are just fantastic and of course the raindrops are an added bonus.

Both your flowers are very beautiful but this fresh, bi-color iris is breathtaking.
Thanks for sharing these exquisite shots on Macro Flowers Saturday!
Wow, both gorgeous but that bi-colour blue iris is just spectacular. You've captured it's essence.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
