Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #46: Delicate

This is my submission for Anne-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #46: Delicate.

Anne-Christine said that, to her, spring itself reveals something of the very essence of the word – Delicate. I totally agree. Spring is finally here in Minnesota (However, the heater is turned back on now.) I’ve found lots of delicate magic in our backyard.

Some, if not all, hearts are delicate.

Among eggs…

Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Sooo lovely, Helen, you have caught the delicacy found everywhere – if we only take the time to look for it. Good eye!

    The flower-hearts are absolutely stunning, and such a rich pink colour too. Wonderful close-ups and shallow depth. Great skill you have there.

      Thanks, Mabel. Like I told Raj, having a VR lens helps 😉 I like Bleeding Heart a lot; I can’t believe I haven’t notice that my neighbor has one until now.
      Have a wonderful day.

      Thank you, Lois. After reading your message, I went out to take a look. Hosta leaves are unfold now. The grow faster than I thought. Then again, my daughter does, too.
      Have a wonderful day.

      Thanks, Tina. This is the first time I saw Bleeding Heart in person. Flowers are smaller than I thought. Still, it is one of my favorites. 😉
      Have a wonderful day.

      Thank you, Roberta. I thought I had a pretty good bleeding heart photo… until I saw a really good one in FB. Now I want to re-do! Ha.
      Have a wonderful day, my friend.
