On a recent walk home I found these plants invading new territory - a little bit of botanical annexation!

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


  1. A good one indeed, Stewart!! Have a great new week!!

  2. There's always a little "annexation" going on at my house given the amount of attention I lavish upon it. :-)

  3. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

  4. They do seem to have a very Russian attitude. In our Melbourne house it covered the front (brick) fence . You had to clip it's wings on a regular basis to keep it in check. Makes for a nice shot though.

  5. Hmm, give them an inch and they take a mile! :)

  6. This is just artsy ... green on green, staight lines against curved lines ... Very impressive eye, Stewart.

    So you say you are very busy for good reasons ... is this something we are going to hear about down the road or is it a personal good thing? Whatever it is, I am happy for you that you are doing something you like doing. We all should be so lucky ...
