A garden is the best alternative therapy.

Macro Monday

Janet, over at Southern Post Journal, features Macro Mondays every Monday (others post Macro Monday shots at Lisa’s Chaos), so I thought I would join in the fun this week.   Here are a few I took with my little Digital Elph – and I also snapped some decent shots of the bees!

      thanks, jenny. i was trying out the digital macro feature i recently discovered hidden in the camera’s settings. i didn’t realize how many textures there were until i uploaded the pictures and looked at them on the big screen. plants are so amazing!

  2. I love the shot of the lavender new growth :o)

  3. Great shots i love the lavender it’s smells so good.

  4. Nice images – fantastic to have a garden with your own herbs in it! I’m thinking that a nice big pot of spaghetti with fresh oregano is in order – thanks for the inspiration!

      indeed, it is nice! we eat a lot of chicken in our house, so this group of herbs comes in very handy! there’s nothing like fresh herbs…
