Macro Mellow Yellows June 9-10, 2013

I am fascinated by the Butterfly Weed.
The blooms make me think of tiny ballerinas twirling around with their arms up over their heads.
Someone gave my Mother-in-law this 'Easter Lily' several years ago.
It is probably a Lillium longiflorum that was forced to bloom in the Spring.
Outside in the flower bed now, it blooms at the beginning of Summer.

Happy Monday!

  1. Grand macros! Love the colours in the first photo and the touch of raindrops in the second!

  2. I like the butterfly weed showing the water droplets and the busy ant. Just looking at the Easter lily makes me think of the fragrance.

  3. Lovely colors and details, I love the flowers with water drops!

  4. Wonderful pictures. I love the little ant going about his business.

  5. I've never had any luck growing butterfly weed. It's beautiful.

    I don't have this kind of lily any more. Don't know why it kicked the bucket.

  6. That butterfly weed is beautiful! I am also waiting for my easter lily to come out ^_^


  7. Both are terrific macros! THe butterfly weed does remind me of ballerinas.

  8. Wonderful shots! The raindrops are so beautiful.

  9. I like the bright colors of the Butterfly Weed, and I'm sure the butterflies will love it too. I love lilies but the Easter lily has never survived for me, and now I'm trying my luck with the Regal Lilies and the Casa Blanca and have a few blooms this year. Happy gardening!

  10. Great macro in that first photo, Lea!

  11. Great capture of Butterfly Weed. :)

  12. Beautiful photos. Nice to know that EAster lily has another life in the garden.
