{pink} 52 Photos yr2/wk5 - pink! ... perfect picture prompt!

Bella, over at 52 Photos Project, couldn't have chosen a better prompt for me this week!
Pretty much every pink flower I have in my garden bloomed this week...
they are all quite early for us at this time of year, but who is complaining!
We also had a gorgeous week weather-wise...though the gardens are going to need some rain very soon 

I have plans to play with some textures when it finally rains but
it is a very busy time for me in the gardens so these are all SOOC

Posting to
52 Photos Project - why not pop over and join in or view the other entries
and
this or that Thursday - check out Deb's awesome monarch caterpillar shots


and of course,
 being the indecisive person that I am, it was a little work narrowing down... 
Having already peonied all over the place, I decided to leave them out as well 
as the orchid and hibiscus,  as they are house plants that I can share another time.

So...straight out of my gardens and my camera this week...


Presenting  

PINK!!



:: creeping phlox by the mailbox ::


:: anemone ::


:: bleeding heart ::


These last two I took just this morning!

If my arms were long enough to reach all the way to Nebraska
I would be giving Nancy, from A Rural Journal the hugest hug for her tip 
about using a zoom lens for macro shots!


Thanks to everyone for their tips...still saving for the macro 
and feel more knowledgable about making a selection!

For now...
these were taken with my Nikon 55 -200 mm


:: columbine ::


:: armeria ::


Unfortunately the pinks haven't bloomed yet!!

Have a great day!
