Flesh

Poking around in the backyard with my macro lens yields all manner of weird and wonderful landscape.  This off a rather large succulent that’s currently flowering up a storm.

For Karen

Happy Birthday Karen; may your next year be the best you’ve had, and yet not the best to come.

Coalesce

The cabbage like form of this succulent is mirrored by the extension of the flower spike.  The beauty of repetition in nature.

Corny

Corn flowering against the back fence; it’s a bit higher now and quite a few ears are coming along nicely!

Bunched

Flowers for this particular species begin closely grouped in the centre of the fanning out leaves.  Slowly the stalk shoots into the air where the flowers can finally unfurl.

Opening

I recently spent a grey afternoon in my backyard sticking my macro lens into as many places that I could find.  First cab off the rank was one of the many succulents that we have flowering at the moment.  I’m a bit of a sucker for succulents (pardon the pun) so the images over the next few days will be of them.

With the collection having recently grown, I imagine I’ll be back out there again soon.
