I generally don't post flower images on Mondays - admittedly I take lots of flower images, many of which end up on my main blog, but I try not to post them here. Absolutely nothing better than really good flower pictures - but lots of other people post them so I generally leave it to them.
However, the crab-apple trees outside our front door have been gorgeous this year, so here are a couple of shots.
The wind, rain and a fall in temperature have not done the flowers any favours and after a week of unremitting beauty they are now starting of fade. We have a litter of brown petals on the ground below the trees and the bees are starting to look elsewhere. The world turns. The clock hands keep moving.
You can find more macro shots at the logically named Marco Monday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screens.
Enjoy the close ups.
