More, Seeing small things, part 4
New leaves on a Japanese maple. I don't know why it's still producing growth but these are new leaves and not autumn leaves changing color.
Two photos of Hydrangea paniculata bracts. If the first photo is of a bract or sepal what are the budlike structures called?
A tiny Black-eyed susan, Rudbeckia hirta (Asteraceae)
Once again a photo of a bract, this time of the Seven Sons tree, Heptacodium miconioides, with the same bud like structures as the Hydrangea.
English Daisy, Bellis perennis. These were very nice in the pot but didn't do well after we transplanted them into the garden. Perhaps they are a spring blooming flower so hopefully they'll survive the winter and bloom again next spring.
Newly opening flower on the Camellia sasanqua, 'Marti'.
Dainty flowers of the sweet basil, Ocymum basilium.
Dogwood fruit. With the added magnification, you can see the bumpy texture of skin of the fruit. Again the shallow depth of field plays havoc with keeping all of the objects in focus.
