Macro flowers

This week's CM challenge is macro flowers which is beginning to be my favorite form of photography.  I had so many pics that turned out great from my trip to Twin oaks park yesterday... which do you like best?

Beautiful Ugly

"What would the world be, once bereft Of wet and wildness? Let them be left, O let them be left, wildness and wet, Long live the weeds and the wildness yet."  Gerard Manley Hopkins

This month's Clickin' Moms challenge, Beautiful Ugly, came easy for me with the bloom of the dandelions.  My kids adore them.  They make wishes by the hundreds, much to my husband's disdain.  Their little blooms stain their smiles yellow.  All the fun my girls have been having over the last few years have made our yard quite the eyesore...err dandelion paradise.  So, beautiful ugly is what you can call our little tranquil haven.  Sorry neighbors!

 "Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them."  A. A. Milne
Yes, that is my yard!  he he...

 "...breathing their wishes at a dandelion" -Jill Hanna
 Recently my 7 year old asked me if wishes work on things that aren't real. All her wishes were that she could fly :)
Not the Mother's day bouquet I had in mind :)
