Those wiegella blooms are definitely magnificent...a photograph to share with all flower-lovers. The close-up is lovely too...one for the album.

C'est la profusion ! Je les aime beaucoup, à cause de leur opulence, mais aussi parce que chaque fleur est parfaite !

The weigela is a beautiful flower with an amazing amount of blooms on the bush. I love your macro shot Carletta, it is definitely dreamy.

Great shot. So many blooms, just lovely.

Maia said...

You've found a very suitable title, these pink bushes really look like a dream.
Gorgeous colors in your macro.

Beautiful macro shot and Weigela bush.
I see this one has variegated leaves too besides the pretty pink flowers.

Nice shape on that little flower. One I don´t think I have seen before.

Thom said...

My gosh those are so pretty. I just love them :)

Beautiful weigela-wish they all would stay in bloom a little longer. Love the Marigolds too. You just can't find a better flower to bloom all summer, not need a lot of care, and have such a variety of reds, yellows, and oranges for their color. Have a nice weekend, Carletta. Mickie :)

The bush is stunning! Your photo makes me wish I could see it in person. Great closeup of the flowers too. :)

I've seen these bushes before but never knew the name of it. Their profusion of blooms make a wonderful colour show. Awesome macro shot of some of those colourful blooms!

Kala said...

Beautiful color and bokeh in the top image. I tried photographing these yesterday, but couldn't get a good shot.

Neal said...

Both pictures are great but that bottom picture is really gorgeous when you enlarge it to full size.

Kerri said...

Such a soft color! Lovely!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful flowers -- I didn't know their name, although I have seen them. Even the name sounds dreamlike. Your macro is stunning.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

These take my breath away!! So, so stunning. Absolutely gorgeous.

[and your vivid, fiery, color of the marigold below this post is outstanding!!!]
