crazy days of summer photo meme–flowers

I’ve been enjoying following photo challenges and have decided to follow along with Alicia’s weekly photo prompt in Crazy Days of Summer

First prompt was flowers and I took advantage of the one day of summer sun we have had so far to take photos in my garden – beats weeding!  I had fun using the macro setting and concentrating on the vibrant colours of the blooms.  Here are my five favourites

Next weeks meme is ‘refreshing’ – why not join in?

Such lovely flowers. I also much prefer taking photos of my gardens than weeding them!
Thanks for visiting my blog! It's fun that you've been to Ocean City before - the pastries you remember are called funnel cakes and we introduced my son to them on our latest trip. yummy!

Love the flower shots Helen, I've been thinking about joining this one but am having enough trouble keeping up with 30 days of photographs for June.
