Dream GardenI figured I'd end may with a dream garden feature.
This is a collection of plants and decorations I'd love to fill my garden with (or currently do have.)

Exceptionally beautiful composition, Cecily ~ lovely work! Cheers, Coco
What a beauty!
Photograohed in a perfect way!
I love it, Cecily!
Very, very pretty!
pretty pretty......my oma's fav flower
Thank you, dear Edie! These little flowers are so photogenic, aren't they?
indeed. I planted one a few years and hubby kept stepping in it so it finally died..
Sorry to hear that, Edie! I planted mine out of the traffic, so they've never disappointed me year after year.
I could do that but dear hubby can manage to step on them anywhere I put anything...oh well. Today he managed to trample down some lily of the valley
I like the way that you can isolate the subject, Cecily, and the way that you ensure the blur of the background. Whcih lens are you using on these - the EXIF says only f/4 and 100 mm.
I'm using Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens for most of my pictures, David! I like to use shallow DoF to achieve bokeh effect in the background and foreground and isolate the subject!
