close-up | find beauty friday

I have been struggling with accepting the upcoming weather change since July.  Every year I wonder how am I going to survive yet another Winter.  And after last Winter, I am really dreading this one.  BUT I have to keep reminding myself that I still have a few weeks left of warm-ish temps before it even gets to the unbearable, hurts to breath cold that is always inevitable in the NW.  These flowers in my mother-in-law's garden certainly helped brighten my mood over the weekend and reminded me that there are still few weeks left of great weather.  

Other posts from flowers in my MIL's garden: here and here

Are you looking forward to the change of season?
What are some of your favorite moments you captured this week?

  1. Beautiful shots. Thanks for making me smile. What lens length are you shooting with?

    I'm looking forward to the winter because it means that we go to Mexico (for 4 months) and even when I'm in Canada, my heart is there.

  2. Goodness, these are beautiful photos!

    I'll be honest, I love winter.

  3. I love that last photo so much! You've captured such a wonderful texture, it almost looks like brush strokes on a painting. I want that photo for my wall!

  4. The last photo of the sunflower is so, so gorgeous! I love the details you captured. And I'm with you -- I often wonder how I'll get through another winter. Last winter was brutal!

  5. Gorgeous pictures! I'm not a fan of winter, but I love fall so I look forward to the cooler weather!

  6. These are beautiful photos (I'm learning to love the beauty of sunflowers) Like you, I'm not a fan of winter so we should enjoy the warm days we have left.

  7. What a lovely blog you have here! It's still very much Summer for us (thank goodness) and we are really enjoying it. Your photos are beautiful, pretty flowers!

  8. Your pictures are gorgeous. Found you via Aimee's linkup and had to check out your blog. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.



I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
