Flowers I Didn't Plant

Flowers growing where I didn't plant them. Weeds? Not as long as they are growing where they're an asset to the garden. These pictures are dedicated to all who prefer lighter, softer shots to the hard darkness of undergrowth (more of that to come later...). All K3 + FA77 + 20mm tube.

Thoughts, comments etc. welcome as usual.

The last one I found most interesting, Steve. On the verge of leaving reality by the wayside, so to speak. I do like that balancing act.

The campanula is lovely. I like the way all the "detail" is piled up on the top right with the "nothing" underneath almost seeming to support the plant.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I too like soft images when Photographing flowers, My wife calls them weeds, I call them beautiful.
They are taken in my backyard.
The first one, the bell flowers Where taken with my K5II with a 1910 Rapid rectilinear lens mounted on
to bellows. At f7.7 180mm 1/90 sec
The second some yellow flowers with the Pentax-F 35-70 at f4.5 1/90sec

Flowers in my opinion are like portraits of females . They look better soft and not to
