    Love your winter scenes on your blog... It's starting to feel like winter here and snow is in our forecast for next week. Snow is pretty, COLD, but very pretty!

  10. Jag har vilda kardborrar som växer som ogräs här och de blir aldrig riktigt fina :(
    Dina är verkligt vackra men det beror också på att du är bra på att fotografera blommor!
    Ha det så bra!

  19. What an intriguing subject for a macro. It looks like gossimer strands (almost like spiderweb) is wound around the flower head--great detail and then that surprising punch of pink. Good eye.
