Even though I have taken photographs of flowers since I was initially gifted my first camera. I remember it well, a point and shoot, film, plastic mostly, it would make this “Twang!” sound each time I pressed the shutter release like a coiled spring was about to fail. A high school graduation present I was very thankful for. I have not learned the names of my subjects any more easily. So, as this series progresses I will need some help identifying the flowers that catch my eye, I am sure.

Nasturtiums, lovely, great color pallete, intricate details and the large green leaves offer a great background.
I did have to look this one up, Butterfly Weed.
These last three photographs offered above are all the same plant. There is such color variation due to the sunlight peeking its way through the clouds while I was in the middle of taking pictures. My mother-in-law’s garden is a beautiful spring escape. More colors still to come.
