It's All About the Colour for Macro Saturday

Digitalis or Foxglove 'foxy' has mauve-pink flowers on it with enchanting little spots.  
My one and only delphinium is a pretty irredescent blue.   This gardener did not stake it properly and in the recent windy days here it fell over.   The stalk would win no awards now. It was very pretty while it lasted.

The tendrils on the foxglove are amazing in detail. Well, on both pictures, but I like the foxglove best.

Lots of flowers need to be staked to stay perfect but you photographed the delphinium while it was nice.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

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…
