Close-up

I was inspired by Stephanie's post of an art of seeing life's finest details. It is very interesting. Here are a few of the details I noticed:


The folds of the dark pink petals of the hollyhock,
and the pollon on the leaf.







I saw the "X" in the middle of this delicate pink flower, and the darker veins gracing the petals.

Cat, the girls have gone home and I have found some time to check in on my blogger friends...I love these close ups and I do remember making Hollyhock dolls, I tried to grow them here but with no success,I know how you feel about not spending as much time on here, so much to do outdoors. BE BLESSED
