Beautiful photo, it almost makes me want to fork out the cash to by a better lens.

Jim said...

Very pretty, Carletta. Your flower pictures are all the best. Ditto James except I need a better camera too.

I like those - they survive pretty well my poor watering skills :) My little one brought home one for Mother's day!

Leora said...

Ah, what a pretty one! I'm thinking back to winter when I had a hard time finding a flower photo to post...now it's flowers, flowers, flowers all a bloom!

Ralph said...

A nice red arrangement, full of imaginary possibilities - I see a ruby parasol, perhaps a red prop on a boat motor or a colorful asterisk. This shape allows us the freedom to imagine...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Very pretty! Red posies make planters and gardens look so festive.

Pacey said...

Oh, so this the pinwheel, thought a periwinkle, they look the same.

judi said...

I wouldn't have known the name of this flower but it is a lovely macro shot.

Annie said...

This is such a pretty little thing. I like that hole at the very center. How fun it would be to string them together to make a lei.

Robin said...

Ooh, it really does look like a pinwheel! Beautiful bloom.

Marie Reed said...

I am always impressed when I pop over here!

Candy said...

I love your photos, the rabbit with grass hanging out of his mouth is great.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing. Come back soon.

Beautiful white streaks
Cascade around the middle
What does that eye see?

Judy said...

I love the tiny whote streaks - makes the red look even more red!

Impatiens are wonderful... I planted some when we lived in Mississippi and they grew so tall and lush near my front patio that they covered the boxwoods... about three feet high. It made the front flower bed look like a sea of blooms. Thanks for stopping by.
