Macro Monday - Blue Skies

To participate in Macro Monday, please check out: Lisa's Chaos

The weather has been glorious over the weekend, so although there was very little change in the garden since the Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, I still felt compelled to take some shots…

Lovely Spring shots there, Liz! I especially enjoy your macro shots. Although... I'm looking forward to seeing some longer shots now too ;-)

Liz said...

Hi Shirl,

Lol, I'm no good at long-range shots! (I actually took some border shots of Alliums with you in mind over the weekend)
And to be honest, right now there's nothing to see... Everything is still distinctly brown or dirty green (moss, algae).

Have patience my young padwan :P I have a post up my sleeve for later in the week.

Hi Manang Kim,

Thank you very much, it's such a nice change to have warm sunny weather after such a bad winter!

Liz said...

Liz said...

Hi Lillagul,

Thank you very much for visiting my blog, I’m glad you enjoyed looking at my photos [:

Liz said...

Hi Cheryl,

Indeed, not to mention the amazingly warm weekend we had, today is sunshine again… Not so warm yet though!

Btw, have you seen the ash clouds?? I’m pretty certain I can see it every night settling across the city… Normally it’s not quite *that* hazy, I really ought to take photos of it.

Liz said...

Hi Pam,

Thanks! It’s a shame most things are weeks behind in their growth though, as by now we’re usually creeping closer to Summer with May being only a stone’s throw away!

Liz said...

Hi Rebecca,

Thank you very kindly :)

Cheryl said...

Hi Liz....no I havn't seen the ash cloud....we seem to be pretty clear here at the moment My brother and his wife are stuck in Thailand....they should have been home last Friday. They have been given a date of May 10th to fly home. What a nightmare....

Liz said...

Hi Cheryl,

Today seems clear, yesterday it was so hazy I could barely see the city centre! I really wish I'd taken photos now to show how bad it was.
I hear another lot of ash it on its way though, so I might get the chance tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about your brother, I cannot imagine how stressful it must be - I hope he has his own place and isn't being taken for a ride by hotels charging the earth!
I'm wondering how many student will begin claiming they're abroad, I bet we'll have lots claiming extensions and even avoiding exams!

Which Cherry is that? The blooms look so dainty and delicate. Really lovely.

Absolutely beautiful! We have had some gorgeous skies, too. So much that now we are needing rain!
