Remember these beauties?

We picked them up at the Greenmarket 2 weeks ago and I shared them with you on Mother’s day – Mother Nature’s Day that is. While they are no longer “alive” per se, they are still beautiful on our coffee table in our candy dish that never holds candy.

This picture was taken with our new Nikon D80 with a 60MM f/2.8D AF Macro Lens. I love how the color of the flowers have changed from a vibrant orange, almost yellow, to a deep orange, almost red. Nature is so amazing. That was my deep thought for the day, if not the week.
