Re-discovering Macro

When I first became serious about photography my inital loves were macro and landscape photography.  Since being snowed in I have been able to get re-acquainted with my Macro 100 mm lens :)

This little guy is my mother's air plant.  She has owned it since we lived in our house in Bowie 10 years ago.  My grandparents came over recently and my Grandpa told my mother she should be watering it more frequently... 2 weeks after she started spritzing it with water once a day and it actually bloomed!  We've had this little plant for over 10 years and it's the first time it's bloomed.
Grandpa was right! Now we have one very happy little air plant :)
The pinks and purples against the green is so lovely.
I love it when our Christmas Cactus blooms.  So pretty!

And... of course... a little pop of GREEN!  I love this with the red curtains in the background and highlighted by the window light.
