SOOC Sunday and Macro Monday

(enlarge for more detail)
Both shots are straight out of the camera.
I think this will be the last of my Rose of Sharon blooms for this summer. The little fawns nibbled off quite a few buds; but I've enjoyed both the deer and the blooms that made it!
And for those of you still waiting - at least one baby pic tomorrow - I'm still working in veggies!

Oh, gorgeous Rose of Sharon - such a pure white colour! Do you freeze and can your extra veggies?

Raven said...

Both lovely. Flowers were sparce here this year...and of course my "garden" just grows wild with no love and care at all, poor neglected yard.

Rose said...

Welcome back! You have been missed! Though in all honesty my blogging has been very hit and miss lately.

These shots are lovely, as well as the one with all your vegies!

Veggies always come first! They won't wait like us very patient bloggers.

Just gorgeous! I love Rose of Sharon. I miss the pink ones I had at my last house. Maybe I will buy one for here soon. Good idea! I love the white, too. Have fun in the veggies.

What a beautiful white blossom. I'm glad the deer left some flowers for you to enjoy.

That's really beautiful! I thought it was a hibiscus at first. I've never seen a Rose of Sharon that colour. :)

Great Capture!

I LOVE white flowers, they always remind me of crisp white sheets for some reason!! You call them Rose of Sharon, while we call them Hollyhocks. Beautiful macro!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Okay! So that's what that plant is called! I took several photos of two of these, at separate locations. On Sunday, I think it was. One had a perfect monarch butterfly sucking its nectar and I photographed it. That'll be for Camera Critters on Saturday!

I have to get one of these Rose of Sharron bushes for my garden! Lovely!
