Gardenias (macro)

The petals of a gardenia unfurling

It’s springtime! The weather has gotten more beautiful and life has gotten even more crazy busy. Today I took the time to get up close and personal to our gardenia bush. . . and a spider.

I love how you can see the pollen on the close up shots. I’m no botanist, but I think there are six stamen surrounding the pistil. Please correct me if I’m wrong! I think we’ll end up dissecting one soon to see the different parts of the pistil.

Spidey was hanging out with me on the screened-in porch.

I hope you’re enjoying spring wherever you are!

Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.
