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 blossoms are outstanding. Love the raindrops on the iris.

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.

Hi Valerie

Those are lovely photos. I love the colour of the iris in particular as its a favourite plant of mine. Have a lovely weekend.
