After a few hours of pulling, plucking and pruning it occured to me that I had not had my camera out for a whole 5 days!! Shock! Horror!
A quick trip back indoors and in short order the tripod and macro lens were ready to go ...
Since the peonies passed while I was away and the roses have been munched on by some dreaded critter I pulled the vase of gerberas out of the kitchen and popped them into the afternoon sunlight. Next to Tuber Roses and Orchids they are pretty much my favourite flower and they seem to like the camera lens.
Here's hoping you have some sunshine in your world too, and the odd flower to "float your boat"!
