Lawn weeds

I cut the grass today this warm dry spell has meant the lawn hasn`t grown much but the weeds sure have buttercups and daisies and the three I have macro photographed here,  red and white clover and selfheal. They do look wonderful with the camera lens close up

Self heal (prunella)

  1. Fascinating close-ups. I let the clover grow on my grass paths as it's great for wildlife.
