Very nice photos-and by the way I LOVE Wyoming-it is one of the prettiest places.

Kristy those are incredible.
I feel like I could just reach out and touch the straw flowers.

Yes I do quite a bit of Container Gardening.. Most of it is actually...

Sadly though when I moved to Wyoming from Oregon, I killed some plants I am usually a super green thumb... but I am still an amateur in many ways also... I thought the snow here wouldn't bother my two rose bushes and Jasmine vine cause they were snowed on in Oregon...
However Oregon had more humidity and wetter snow, warmer temps... Had a couple nights below zero and they didn't survive it... so the cold got them, the blizzards we had weren't a problem, cause they kind of insulated them..

anyways live and learn.. I have a new Jasmine vine and hope to get some more rose bushes eventually..

Wow! I've never seen plants anything like those! I'm wishing for a macro lense for my birthday, but hubby already purchased by b-day present.

Great shots!

Funny you mention macro. I took a macro workshop ten days ago, which included a trip to the farmers market. I posted some shots in the flowers thread, but here are some more, as well as some I had previously taken.

I love macro!

LOL! Don't have macro lenses, either. These were taken with a simple, automatic digital camera, non-SLR. I'm planning to buy a DSLR before the end of the year but I won't be able to afford any additional lenses yet.

Lovely shots, Claire. Was the workshop useful?

Thank you! The workshop was incredibly useful. I've been playing with SLRs for 12 years (first film, now digital), yet could never quite wrap my head around the technical side. The light bulb went off in my head that night, and it all just clicked. It's done wonders for my confidence behind the lens.

I highly recommend taking a workshop if you get the chance - preferably one with a field trip with the instructor on hand to help with any questions.

Oh, I'd love that! But, as I said, I need to buy a camera first

Here's one more from my own field trip last month, just found it in my gallery:
