Focus on Life: Color - Macro photographs!

Finding the real colors and textures around us....

This week, our Focus on Life prompt is to find interesting macro shots to share with you. 

Fall creates many changes around us, and many are small things we just walk right by.

I just looked around the fading garden pots by my door step.

A late broccoli sprout.

Cinnamon basil.

Flower of pink stonecrop sedum.

Center of a rudbeckia flower - I didn't even see the web until I got this on the computer.

Another rudbeckia, from the top this time. 

Sempervivum. This live-forever plant was almost killed by our cold winter last year!

I loved discovering the details we usually miss as the weather has it's way with our plants. What else do we have to look forward to? 


  1. incredible shots! lovely fall colors!

  2. Such lovely photos - I'd love to try the cinnamon basil, never heard of that before...

  3. Great color and textures! I love the sedum but I just don't have a green thumb.

  4. Such great shots! I love the muted fall colors you've captures - and all the textures - wow!! Fantastic!

  5. Beti, you give new meaning to garden art! Just love that rudbeckia - don't think I have ever heard of it before.

    1. Rudbeckia isi essentially a black-eyed Susan with attitude!
