Summer Memories.....



of Bees and Flowers.



Luiz Santilli Jnr created Today's Flowers and asked me a few years ago to take over his role as host.  I was very happy to do so.  He occasionally pops in to say hello, so "Hello Luiz and thank you!"

These are absolutely gorgeous, Denise. So refreshing.

Ginny said...

Wow, awesome macros!!! I think the flower is Cosmos and the insect is a bumble bee? That took bravery! But I guess if you come at him from behind you may be a bit safer...

Elephant's Child said...

Bright and beautiful. Love the macro of the bee too.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

A very nice mosaic and some bright and cheerful blooms; just what I need on this rather grey Saturday morning.

Valerie said...

The flowers are the in-colour this season - and my favourite. I too love the macro, and the mosaic.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Denise Although we have a bright and breezy day here, these flowers do add to the colour of the day as we do not have many flower blooming here in the winter. Have a wonderful weekend.

Jannibele said...

Such Lovely Cosmos! One of my favourites...and the bumble bees as well:)

Sandra said...

love the collage and love all the flowers but the first shot of the bee taking a pollen bath on that flowers is amazing and gorgeous.

Barbara Rogers said...

Lovey to see such colourful flowers about. I keep meaning to photograph what's in flower here right now, but have run out of time!

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful!

Amy Franks said...

very pretty and such a vibrant pink!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

That is absolutely the loveliest flower mosaic ever! Wouldn't it make a great lap quilt? Or wall hanging? Gorgeous.

Carver said...

The flowers and bees are beautiful. I don't have a post this week because I was confused. I thought you were hosting through December 2014 but last week had one last one. I belatedly realized you said 2015 so thanks for another year. I'll probably come up with some flowers from time to time although I probably wouldn't have had any ideas this week even if I had realized this was continuing. This is a good time of the year though to look back through archives for flowers during the growing season. Thanks for all your efforts to keep this going and for another year as host.

Such beautiful and encouraging images. It is nice to think that summer will return, even to the frozen north.
