Now that we’ve turned the corner and put the Winter Solstice behind us, I thought I’d start posting some shots of what we’ve got to look forward to. These flowers bloom every year, right on the side of the road here in Irvine. I would never have noticed them, and in fact, hadn’t noticed them in the 10+ years that I’ve lived here (even though I walk past them daily!), until recently when I started looking for interesting Macro subjects. I find it incredible that so much beauty can be found in such small things, so near one’s house, yet so far from one’s attention. Nature is truly incredible.
