I heart macro - passion

Hello friends,

As you know, part of each Sunday is for 'I Heart Macro'... here are a few close up photos from both garden and studio.

This is the first passionflower on my newly planted vine... they are such a weird and fabulous flower! I am hoping I will get lots of passionfruit.. there are certainly lots of buds and flowers appearing on the plant to make me think I should. I am not too sure if you get fruit in the first year... can anyone tell me?

Just love those wild tendrils!

This is such a delicate beauty with it's upright petals and hidden little pod. I never tire of seeing these beautiful poppies
show up in my garden each year.

 And just because we are talking 'up close' here.... this is a little bit of my passion at the moment... making a ring... this is a set of rings that you use to determine your finger size before making a ring.

The russian wedding ring I am still making needs to be made from a ring 5 sizes bigger than my finger! I am a 'P' but had to make the rings in a 'U' size. It seems so large and loose at the moment......! I am crossing my fingers and hoping it will be a good fit when completed.

Today I am linking up to 'I heart macro' hosted by Lori at Studio Waterstone, so please do head on over and join in the macro and up close photography fun.

Cheers,

That is such a super cool flower!! I love the colors, tendrils and uniqueness! I believe all flowers are beautiful but the ones that are extra strange or different is such a nice change from the 'normal':)

If you are having passionfruit flowers you hopefully will also have fruit set. Amazing flowers aren't they. They open in a matter of second too - if you can catch them!

Love you poppy - another variety I am yet to grow.....

That passion flower ... it's one of my favorites tho it can be quite invasive. Gorgeous image!!

Hope to see you stop by and pay a visit sometime soon. Have a glorious week ahead.

Hi Jenni, the passionflower is amazing! I hope it bears fruit ;) It's exciting to hear you're making rings - a lovely close-up of the ring-measuring-rings!
