Macro Sunday - Celebrations

We were in the garden yesterday evening, sharing a bottle of wine as it was my husband's Birthday.  The sun was still quite high, and as I got up to go inside with the empty glasses I noticed the glorious colour the wine had left. 
Just couldn't resist a photograph, to try to capture it.
 I love the way the wooden slatts of the table make a pattern through the glass too!
My Bella Donna Lilly flowered yesterday too.  It is mostly leaves, as you can see .....
but the flower is beautiful.  It looks as if I have three this year - whoopee!
Click on the "I heart macro" button to see what the others are up to, or better still, why don't you join us?
Till next time .....

What a lovely effect on the glasses Val, and your lilies go so well with them. Happy Belated Birthday to your husband.

Love the wood through the glasses! I'm a big fan of drinking from colored glass (I have my great grandmothers deep purple, green and blue wine glasses). The lilies are beautiful - and makes me wish the deer would leave some flower heads around here for me to see what kinds of lilies I have ;)

I love your Belladonna - the most delicate pink.

Your images of the rosy tinted wine glasses is great too!
Will you paint from the photo Val?

Enjoy your week

Sounds like a very nice evening. I have not seen this lily before--it is beautiful and matches the glasses.

I've never noticed the wine changing the color of the glass. Neat.
I too like the look of the wood slats through the glass!
