Stunning capture
 
Allium cernuum | Nodding Onion | Lady's Leek
I've let these allium flowers self seed in the garden and these ones grow in among the very soft silver spires of the Stachys plants (Lambs Ears).

If you ever want to encourage more bees into your garden then I can thoroughly recommend these two plants ... they make great photography subjects too especially as there is always a bee on at least 1 of the flowers.

You can see more pictures of these two flowers from last year in my garden here: http://www.leavesnbloom.com/2013/07/its-tale-of-two-summers.html 

We're in our last week of the blur and unsharpness mentorship here on G+.  8 weeks is a long time to be on a mentorship so I'm hoping that regular public posting will resume soon again here on my profile :)

Must try this...
 
Frozen Dawn

We had nice cold temps this morning so I mixed up some new "bubble solution" and went out to shoot frozen bubbles. While I didn't have as much success as I was hoping for... I did like the design on this one.

Happy Thursday!!
