Yesterday, I met up with the North Georgia Photo Club at Gibbs Gardens. The daffodils that bloomed early this year were on their way out but there is still lots to enjoy. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and some early azaleas are blooming. There are many, many plants sprouting and ready to bloom soon and will probably be making the gardens amazingly vibrant over the next few weeks.
One of the flowers that were eye-catchers this weekend were these yellow poppies. I was exercising my macro lens on this trip so, I got in as close as possible to capture the detail of the eye of this flower. I don’t think I have ever made a trip to Gibbs when I didn’t get some good images. The flowers are a bit restrained right now because so many spring and early summer plants are not quite ready. I’m sure the summer will be fantastic and I plan to make many more trips this year.
