All the following pictures were taken in my back yard. We don't have much grass in the back yard, but we do have a lot of ground cover weeds that don't look bad at all - and have some beautiful flowers:
This is the uninspiring macro view of the bit of ground where most of those weeds are flowering - they are so tiny you can't enjoy them much with the naked eye.
Next - I played with some lenses a little bit and took some "effects" photos of my clerodendrums and blue lantana in bloom.
Lastly, some blue glass we have hanging on a bird feeder branch, a clear picture of the clerodendrums and a little bee I saw while lying in the grass.
Oops - I almost forgot - an aloe-like, cactusey kind of plant that is flowering right now.
