Looking Carefully in the Garden.

(Subtitled: “Looking desperately in the garden for something new to photograph with my macro lens and hoping that the breeze dies down)

The macros for my post for this week’s “Finding Joy in Small Things” were taken within the last couple of days in our small garden.

How I am patiently/impatiently anticipating some new flowers to blossom for photographs!!!

However, the absence of anything more grand does put the spotlight on an errant bluebell in a tub of emerging Agapanthus:

Also a single chive flower in a small patch of around 50 in a border becomes worthy of attention:

Whilst waiting for this Clematis to flower, I looked carefully at one of its buds:

I wonder what new joys I can find in the garden tomorrow……..
