Center of the universe through a flower...An extreme close-up of a little flower growing out on the back deck. I'm not even sure what kind it is but it comes up every year in the same clay pot from some seeds I threw in there about 5 years ago. I can see the little colorful blooms from my kitchen window and I've gotten really attached to that little plant that comes up every year.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Our flowers never seem to come up the next year and our pictures of this years aren't nearly as good.

Hello Dr. John and you are so very welcome. I really enjoyed visiting your blog. I think the little flower I have in that pot is perennials that come up every year and it just reseeds itself every year. I always pull the little dried seedhead after it blooms and sprinkle back in the pot.
Hi Alfreda! Yes nature has the most wonderful colors and beauty I'll never get tired of looking and taking pictures of it! Thanx.

Excellently done!

Stunning - I've always loved macro shots of flowers. My first thought was that it looks a little like an indian blanket flower...

And I totally agree - the Stand is an absorbing book. It's one I've read repeatedly.

LynClay said...

hehe that's OK W.J. I knew you which one you were talking 'bout!
Hey Cathy I'll google the name of the flower that could be it because it gets so hot up on the deck being on the south side of the house. Hi Joyce, yep that was a fantastic book, very chilling, I've read it twice now. Thanks everyone! :)
