Geometry #2 & Macro Monday

Geometry is hosted by Katney of Katney’s Kaboodle. If you’ve got a line or an angle on a great shot, Katney wants you to share it.


This fence meanders across the nature preserve at Cattle Point on San Juan Island.


Macro Monday is hosted by Lisa of Lisa’s Chaos. If you love macro photography, this is the place for you!

Blooming Beautiful

My apologies to those of you visiting from back east. We seems to be having an early Spring. I just hope another frost doesn’t come and put an end to it.

From left to right (top): Witch Hazel, Clematis; (bottom) Hellebore, Hellebore, Roses from my Valentine’s Day bouquet.


  1. That’s a nifty shot of the fence — and the flowers are gorgeous! Apricot roses are my favourite, they’re the first ones I saw in your flower shots.
    You’re making me want to experiment more with macro with these Mondays.

    1. Susan — they are my favorite, too. Even though they were far from the best looking roses in the shop, Amoeba picked them up for me because they are my favorite.

    1. Nessa — I am sorry about the snow. We have blue skies and sunshine. I just returned from my walk, sans coat. It is almost 50F outside.

    1. DBM — but if Canada owned them, I wouldn’t live here! Do you know that there was almost a war over possession of these islands?

  2. Ok – let’s not rub it in! I have a feeling our snow will last right up to spring time!

    The fence is the perfect photo for your “zigzag” assignment. I see these types of fences here in PA, but usually they are not painted white.

    The flower collage is perfect! You always take great photos, especially of the flowers!

    1. CL — the fence isn’t painted white. The wood has silvered with age and you are seeing sun glare. Biggie the photo (takes two clicks) and you will see.

    1. Lew — thanks. Despite the sun shine, the day was cold and windy, but I left the trail and the quick trip back to shelter and climbed a small hill to capture that shot.

  3. Fence is wonderful… and I’m shivering with envy here over your early Spring. But it gives me hope for the one that will arrive here in a month or two hopefully.

  4. That ‘geometry’ photo is gorgeous! I love it.

    For the Macro Monday montage – my favourite is the pink hellebore in the centre at the bottom. I’ve never grown them, because they’re toxic, but they are rather lovely.

    1. Carletta — at the bottom of the fence I sighted uphill, and instantly realized that I needed to climb the hill and site down.

      And yes, these flowers were blooming in the church courtyard.

  5. The fencing style is very familiar and oh so photogenic. 😀
    I am not offended at all by your macro shots of spring. Not only are they beautiful, but I’m thinking of it as a tonic for our palette of black, gray, brown, and white. The white doesn’t bother me, nor does the brown if it is the trees we are looking at — it’s the dark colors of muddy slush and the blackened snow pushed aside on the roadways and parking lots that get to me!

    The kids are scheduled to go back to school tomorrow. Those golden buses are going to be a bright spot in my morning! 🙂
