Day 75

"A weed is no more than a flower in disguise." -Unknown

Our yard is covered in clover. So much so that unless it has just been mowed, it doesn't even look like we have grass in some areas. Well, we don't have grass in some areas. Cause of this stinkin stuff!!!

Still workin on the macros. I wish I could figure out how to get the background to go really blurry. Practice, practice, practice! I did turn down the saturation in Picasa. I think it looks prettier this way.


  1. It turned out good - what a pretty "flower"!

  2. Are you using the Sanyo in the sidebar? If it has a macro setting, try it. If not, I don't know how you could do it without a SLR.

  3. Great capture. I have something like this coming up of a wildflower, hard to take. Nice job.

  4. Ditto what Vicki said, if you're using a point & shoot, it should have a macro setting, which should get your aperture wide open and cause the background to blur.

    This is a lovely photo of the flowering clover, and I love your quote. What we call "weeds" are only designated weeds by us. Who says they aren't a beautiful flower in their own right? :)
