I'm in awe.............

Spring has crept up on me this year, Just when I wasn't paying much attention. It still feels like yesterday I'd just pruned the roses, and they have come back in force already. Lavender blue, lavender blue, where can I find a friend oh-so-true?Pink Lavenders too! and "Pure Harmony" white French lavenders my brother gave me..........Today I was as though on a roll to pay specific attention to intricate details that Creation had to offer, I wasn't disappointed. I realised the camera could pick up much more details than I could see in real life with my own two eyes. The intricacy of the process of flowering is amazing...........Even part of my lunch speaks volumes about the intricacy of God's creation! I'm in awe.........This flower speaks Spring to me like no others, I have tried to remember its name; but I still don't have it. (Perhaps you do?) That's what happens when you grow it from cuttings from a friend. I'm still in awe of the intricacy of this flower! Oh! Look at it.............. How can I not be?It was good to take time and slow down to notice and pay attention.

Rosy,

I thoroughly enjoyed your lovely lovely lovely flower shots! Yes, the details are simply breath-taking.

I think the flower is called Scabiosa (on pincushion flower). I call them my "Scabbies" if they are really what I am thinking about. I have them in my yard, but the ones I have planted tend toward the purple/lavender color.

Oh, now I know what Apple Crumble is... hahaha.

Yes, it is SO easy to make. And I was surprised it was a hit with the Chinese ladies at church. Normally, they shy away from Western Desserts, but they love this one because it is "not too sweet", according to them, hahaha! :) I love the taste of "toasted" pecans. That's what they tasted like after being in the oven. I actually added more pecans than the recipe had called for.

Judging by all the pretty flower photos, your garden must look a picture Rosy! It is a scabiosa and they also come in other colours and in an annual form....thay are all very pretty.Your roses have come on SO fast. Our spring here seems to be a bit wetter than previous years, is it the same for you in W.A.? Can't wait to see the first flush of roses, happy gardening, Angela.

The post will be about your blog and leading back to you! I get several hits a day and would LOVE them to see your blog!

What lovely photos! I'm with you. When I take my camera out to the gardens, I see so much more through the lens than I would have noticed otherwise. We're both into detail and how things evolve!
