This week’s lens artist photo challenge is all about
focusing on details. There is nothing like seeing the close up detail of flowers to really appreciate their beauty.
The photo below was taken by a lovely old stone building. But what caught my eye was the dandelion catching the sun.
And the intricate details of a dandelion clock or seed-head always fascinates me.
May already, and we are still having night frosts. Time they went away now. This week’s Six on Saturday. Thank you to
The Propagator for hosting.
Red crab apple – tiny apples but makes up for it with it’s beautiful foliage and flowers.

Last summer, a number of chicks hatched from the incubator. As the chicks grow, you really get to know their characters.

There are the cute ones.
Chicks on arm
The cheeky ones.
The shy ones.
The bossy ones.
Now we have new chicks and the
getting to know you will start all over again.
In memory of Mac – who was one of the shy ones.
It is the time of year for blossoms. Enjoy.
