~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146: Focusing on the Details ~

Flowers are blooming, shrubs are alive with fragrance and color, and spring is in full swing. Last Wednesday, I posted landscape shots of the front yard, and today I offer details of some of those lovely bloomers.


Rhododendron thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Their broad evergreen leaves provide an understory cover for birds, and their brilliant blossoms, while short-lived, are a vibrant addition to spring gardens.


This particular Lilac is so fragrant folks walk across the street to breathe in it’s essence.

Sweet Alyssum

I was pleasantly surprised to find this pot of Sweet Alyssum and Chrysanthemum wintered over and is quite exuberant in it’s place on the entryway to our home.


Self-seeding and a sun-lover, Columbine is a welcome wildflower.

Calla Lily

A transplant from my sister’s garden, Calla Lily is a graceful, sensuous addition to my spring gardens. Thanks to Patti for this challenge. With an overcast sky, and no wind, I was able to use the macro feature on my camera to take these photos today. What a treat!

Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please mask-up and stay safe.🐾

    Lovely choices Lindy – and yes, spring has sprung bringing us the most glorious treats! My favorite of these is the simple lilac – you’ve captured it perfectly. I can almost smell it from here.
