Square January #3

Close UP

Always the optimist, Becky is hoping that 2021 will be a more positive year as we march onwards and upwards. Yes, the theme for January Squares is the word ‘up’ and as usual she invites us all to join her in a month of ‘ups’ of any description. The only absolute rule is that your main photograph must be SQUARE, and remember a square has 4 equal sides.

    I like this soft-focus Jude. Very relaxing.

  2. Sue says:

    Love this close-up, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      One of the plants that didn’t survive the beast from the east.

      1. Sue says:

        Oh ☹️

    Nice colours 🙂 🙂

    That’s an unusual plant, (at least to me) and looks good up close.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just an unusual flower of a sempervivum. Getting close reveals hidden details.

  5. Tish Farrell says:

    This reminds me of Venetian millefiori glass. Lovely colours.

  6. Ann Mackay says:

    Lovely photograph – sad that the Beast got it.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes. It was a pretty flower. I aimed to redo my belfast sink and fill it with succulents (the more hardy ones), but then couldn’t get to my local succulent nursery in the spring. Hope I can do that this year. Or maybe I should turn it into a pond?

      1. Ann Mackay says:

        The frogs will probably vote for a pond… 🙂 I miss going to nurseries too – hope that it’s not too long before we can get back to them – and to visit gardens.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Frogs would be good if they eat the slugs! The OH is not keen on frogs though…

  7. Beautiful shot, Jude. I love all the little spiky bits. 🙂

  8. Su Leslie says:

    This is a stunning shot Jude. So sad that the plant didn’t survive

    1. Heyjude says:

      I can replace it if I can visit the nursery in spring.

  9. BeckyB says:

    oh isn’t this gorgeous, a stunning close up and love the colours too
