Achillea Moonshine for Macro Friday



The Achillea or Yarrow ‘Moonshine’ is blooming out by the pond.   This plant is a truly drought tolerant plant.   It blooms for a long time and has wonderful structure and form.   I love the flat heads for photography and the colour of schoolbus yellow is a favourite in hot places.

I am joining Laura at Blogging from Bolivia for Macro Friday.   Have a great weekend.    Valerie

That's pretty although it almost looks like it's holding a ton of pollen...which makes me sneeze.

Who knew you could make yarrow look so beautiful. :)

I love flowers like this that are not only beautiful but hardy and long lasting.
Great shot, neat frame. Perfect with the bloom. Take care and have a great weekend:)

I depend on Achillea for colour through the summer - red, pink, yellow and nearly-white. While we drown all through spring, we are in drought - sometimes cool drought - by July.
Hi Val
Great shot. I haven't had any yarrow for some time as it always flopped over on me. I do know there are some new sturdier varieties, maybe I should try them again.

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…
