Olio Lens on Dearborn Dahlias

I got a new four lens optical gadget for my iPhone.  It lets me take 10x, 15x, wide angle and fish-eye photos.  Here are some close ups of what's blooming here in June (Dahlias). 

Frank and my garden plot. 

Dearborn community garden. 

Pompon or ball?  It is difficult to know.




Water Lily or decorative?  I get confused.

I'm pretty sure this is a single!  Woo Hoo!

Informal? With a dash of Collerette?

A cucumber.  The bees were loving it. 

Unknown single rose. 


Slightly tart blackberry and thumb.

New Orleans & Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve


On the outskirts of New Orleans, LA, there is the swamp.   An abused piece of "land" now protected by the National Park Service and now entering a healing phase.   All of the oyster shell mounds have been mined, all the old growth cedars have been harvested, the oil industry had its way, now nature is allow back in to reign.
