Summer is Back!

After more than a week of incessant rain, the sun is finally up!



The bees and the butterflies are now a-fluttering in our garden. The plants must be truly happy to see the sun peeking through the clouds!

*Photos were taken using Finn, my point and shoot Fuji FinePix J150W. Shot in Macro mode, tweaked with Picnic using the Vibrance tool.

Sharing with Snapshot Sunday, i Heart Macro, Look Who's Snapping, and Green Monday.

Love the light and contrast of color, the wonderful shades of red and green (which don't seem like fancy enough names to describe these colors!)

Holly said...

Beautiful shots!! I love the contrasts of the light, bright and dark of the first picture...

Love the lighting in this last composition.

The colors of the blossoms look almost a fuchsia-like plant.

HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU is my Monday post. Hope you can find time to pay a visit.

Hello everyone!
Thank you for your comments, and sorry for taking an eternity before I replied. :)

Anyway, these are kamias (or kalamias as some prefer to call it.) They're crunchy and juicy and sour all at the same time. :)
