Last Garden Shoot?

I have some apple blossom plants in my front garden that are supposed to become a hedge. They have taken years to grow and finally (now that I’m moving) they’re starting to really take off. They are covered in beautiful white blossoms and I always see so many bees buzzing around the blossoms. I’ve wanted to go out with my camera and try to catch some bees. So this morning, Gidget and I headed out there and sat in the sun with my Olympus OMD EM5 with my 60mm macro lens and go some shots. These are some of my favourites.

For Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic.

    Will you be looking for some where with a garden in Melbourne? You will have a very different gardening experience down there. These are lovely photos lots of spiders around at the moment.

      Thank you again PP. Yes, I’d like a small courtyard if possible. Especially for GG, although I am looking for inner city, so it could be tricky.

          Actually I’m looking at it now. It’s turned the pinky red colour with just a little yellow in the centre.

  5. Is a garden on your list of requirements for your Melbourne pad? I hope so, because it’s been a rich subject for your camera. This post is a great mix of flora and fauna.

  11. You will need to find a park for GG and a garden for you in Melbs. And let me confess, not only because you both will miss it, but all of us here who love your macro shots.
    Stunning as always!
