Travel Theme: Miniature Roses

Minature Roses-376

Good afternoon from a warm and sunny Hastings day.

Please excuse my tardiness.  I have just changed Internet Providers and they spent the morning tweaking our internet.  I suppose they thought that no-one would be awake before midday in this household, and therefore are not online.  Well they got that wrong.  So I have just done some editing and then sat in the sun to paint.  Now it is a case of watching paint dry.  But the internet is now back on and a tad faster – methinks.  My son is just over the interruption and now couldn’t care less about the speeds – which he normally does.

Anyway onto Ailsa’s challenge over at Where’s my backpack?, which this week is tiny things.

So here are some miniature roses taken on Friday at the Frimley Rose Gardens.

Minature Rose-388

These are not true macros.  But the roses were about the size of an old New Zealand 50 cent piece – about 3 cm or just over an inch and a bit in diameter.

Minature Rose-386

I just used the macro setting on my camera, just to enable me to focus right up close and then braved the thorns to get right up close to them.

Poppy-630

But for this bee, I stood well back and zoomed on it.  The bees were just a little too active for my liking last Friday.
