Hmm.... Sorry, doesn't look like Garden was a well liked macro topic :(

lavanut & Nidz,
Both of you submitted great photos....

But lavanut's "Backlit Bloom" won to my eyes because of the beautiful colors :)

What he said. Plus, I got a nasty flu to boot. Don't sweat it, John.

WTG Lisa! Nidz, wonderful perspective!

I was glad I was able to get out & shoot this time. I've been busy myself lately. I thought it was a timely topic, and thanks for the nod, John! My garden is actually suffering right now except for tomatoes which are doing well. My cucumbers, squash, & zucchini have all been victimized by bugs. I tried to get some shots of those, but I didn't like them as well as the flower shot.

Nice 'shroom shot, Nidz!

The new challenge is up. I hope a few more folks can find time to participate this week since you get to play with Toys! :)

(BTW, this is my 1000th post!) :-D :-D :-D

I'll be selling my current body within the next week or so... I don't think duct tape residue will be a selling point ;)

I wanted to put a shot in for this one but work has been too hectic this week.

Great shots though.
