Frank’s theme for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge is ‘Growth’, so flowers seems like a logical place to go to find an appropriate image, notwithstanding that I posted a picture of some roses last time.
I saw this tightly packed group of lily buds in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney a few years ago. There’s plenty of potential growth here and perhaps the tight crop lifts the shot a little out of the ordinary.

Frank’s chosen the topic of ‘Rose’ for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge. I have no shortage of images of roses in my library, so the only problem was selecting one previously unposted. I think this fits the bill. It’s a French rose called ‘Pierre de Ronsard’ and I saw it last year at the annual festival of roses at Doué-La-Fontaine

For this week’s ‘Fun Foto’ Challenege, Cee is looking for a macro or close-up image. Well, here is a look into the heart of a flowering lily. Be sure to keep that pollen off your clothes, because you’ll never get it off.

Appropriately enough for the time of year (in the northern hemisphere, at any rate), Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge theme this week is ‘cold’.
After the temperature dips overnight in the absence of any cloud cover, the bay leaves on our laurel bushes are tipped with frost.

Not in my backyard…but in my mother’s.
The almost translucent heads of these three stray poppies, sneaking under the fence from next door, stood out really well against the wooden fence. My new(ish) iPhone captured them pretty sharply, I think.
