  14. Hi Gunilla! I see you added me to a circle on Google+.

    Your beautiful yellow flowers make me ready for spring. Our weather has been more spring like the last few days. The grass is greening, but no tree buds or flowers yet.

  16. Just perfection! You show two such different flowers in this post and the next one up, and you do such a beautiful job of capturing the essence of both in your macros.

  17. What a surprise! At first I thought tulip and then you reveal that it's cactus. I love the almost transparent color of some desert flowers. And I'm glad you have the botanic gardens to see you through those long, cold, Finnish winters.

    1. Thank you Faye! The Gardens are great, but nothing can save a dark and gloomy winter like the one we had this year. Luckily it's all quickly forgotten when spring arrives.
