“Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I especially like the 1st one. I tried several times to get a good one of those flowers. The attached is not colorful but I like it.

  2. Your pictures are beautiful, as always. Do you have any tips for shooting flowers?
    Flower shots for me always end up slightly blurry on account of wind :/

    • If you’re using a point and shoot camera without an option for action shots, the wind can be challenging. If you use one that you can adjust shutter speed on – you’ll have better luck. Or…wait for a calm day…cheapest solution of all! πŸ™‚

  3. Lovely flowers and doggies. Glad Joe is recovering. We are 6 weeks on from a 2nd cruciat ligament operation on the same leg, this time a tplo, and seeing Joe’s stitches was a reminder what other pet lovers and pets go through and not feel sorry for myself. Joy
