I don't consider myself much of a flower person-- at least not the typical kind, who finds roses beautiful and enjoys bouquets made by florists; I don't even own a proper vase!-- but lately I've enjoyed bringing fresh flowers into our house every week or so. This morning I came home with a zinnia and a sunflower from our CSA pickup. The couple who runs our CSA is adorable; their son, Ira, was selling sunflowers for $1 each this morning. I had to have one!
For some reason, using the macro settings on my camera to take closeups of flowers is irresistible to me. There are so many neat textures to explore!
And of course, I'm getting pollen everywhere. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
