I like all these lovely closeups, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Glad you did. Spoke spring to me.
Such beautiful light on these images, Mary! Curious - how they develop their pollen differently! Perhaps to keep the pollinators returning?
Mary MacADNski: Most flowers on a plant develop at different times within that species limit. You will see it again and again.
Ces fleurs ont de très belles couleurs.
Mary MacADNski: This is a lovely colour, I agree.

A nice pretty plant
Mary MacADNski: A simple spring primrose that is not hardy here but certainly is in your location. This was inside.
What a joy to see, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Spring is joyous indeed.

Some beautiful details in this; I especially like the colours and textures.
Mary MacADNski: I remember that day two years ago. That plant is gone now.

This is just wonderful and colourful. Great macros. I love this time of the year with all the beautiful flowers.
Mary MacADNski: We still have lots of snow but the daffodils have emerged about 5 cm from the soil.
Such magnificent colours Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Soooothing
What a really enjoyable quartet of pictures Mary, Maureen always has quite a few of these on the go.
Mary MacADNski: This is from two years ago and it was a couple of years old. It died after this and I've not bought another one. They are not hardy here so a splurge.

Wonderful images- you are one of the best flower photographers on SC!
Mary MacADNski: I want to keep this comment forever, Philine. The best compliment I could have as you read passion, not perfection.
Lovely shot, Mary - particularly the top one!
Mary MacADNski: I remember this session fondly. Thank you.
Great set of shots, continuity of flowering raising the chances of successful pollination.
Mary MacADNski: Exactly. Most plants do this and it was interesting to see it and show it with neighbouring flowers. I have mentioned on earlier comments that it is perfectly usual.
This is a smart primrose which is hedging its bets
Mary MacADNski: It worked for another season but did not make it to the next.
Sounds busy...
Mary MacADNski: Every plant does this.
