Flower portraits

I find it hard to take good photographs of my flower beds but I do love taking close ups of individual flowers, so I am going to share a few flower ‘portraits’ of some of the current flowers in my garden.

First some landscape portraits in alphabetical order

  1. Love Macro flower shots – like stepping into another world. You have revamped your blog – a Spring-clean?! I like your list of ‘Pages’, that will make it easier to find things. Fascinating cover picture.
    I’ve been having trouble with WordPress, I can’t access any of the working buttons without going through WP Admin, it’s a pain. Have you had any similar issues?

    1. I decided to use WordPress’s latest offering just for a change. I haven’t actually added anything I didn’t have before. Just rearranged things a bit and removed the list of followers since most of them don’t post anymore. I have tried to include a whole variety of ways to find things.
      I am not sure what you mean about the buttons. I use the WP Admin a lot anyway. If you want to explain more fully in an email. I’ll see if I get the same.
