The Hole

I have been enjoying taking photos of my Chinese Lantern since it had a flower until now. As of this time, the flower gets dry and creates a hole. An when you touch it, it feels like dried paper. See how it looks.


                                       I am linking this to I heart Macro and Macro Monday

My mum used to grow these in our garden when I was little. She used to take them in and dry them too.

Wonderful macros. We used to have Chinese lanterns before. I took them in in the fall and let them dry for ornamental use.
Picture 3 2 is so full of life . You've made an excellent catch!

I like these shots! If you poke 2 holes at the top, it might even look like a Halloween pumpkin. :)
