Spring is still in the air with crazy weather in the form of hot temps one day and cold rain two days later. With big changes, spring flowers are abundant. I just love smelling the fragrant air as I walk through my neighborhood, especially with the star jasmines and roses blooming!
For Musin’ with Susan’s Macro Moments Challenge, the theme of week #37 asks photographers to create a macro image using water.
My American Beauties were crazy last month, but this is all that is left until the next batch. Luckily I clipped a few to place in a vase to enjoy in the house. For a flower riot, check out this previous post.
I found this quote that seems to commemorate the moment, by James Thompson, Scottish Poet:
“Gather the rosebuds while ye may, old time is still a flying; And that same flower that blooms today, tomorrow shall be dying.”
For Macro Moments participants, I captured this with my Samsung Galaxy S5 on full zoom, and used a mister to spray water onto the flower. Of course, the wind made it challenging to capture a clear image, but I believe this one turned out for the best. I even got some great depth of field (quite by accident)!

I hope you are still enjoying the spring air and flowers.
