Spring Flowers / Spring Showers

Spring showers may bring forth flowers, but they also cause a bit of grief for our wisteria!  We still have a fine display of the purple waterfall of wisteria at its best, but my eye was drawn to the collection of fallen petals below the plants.


You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Love Macro.

The bed of petals is very pretty. The bruised/brown ones set off the lavender ones. Nice contrast.
