This photo, "Daisy Macro," came to us from Robin Lusk of Windsor, Ont.
It's big, it's bright and with the macro treatment looks something like a ball of fire.
"Beautiful yellow daisy, up close and personal," Lusk writes of her pic.
Talk about flower power!
This photo, "Fun Veggies," came to us from Debbie Oppermann in Guelph, Ontario. Inspired by our "flower power" photo contest, she decided to jazz up a healthy snack.
"Sometimes children need a little fun in order to eat their veggies," she writes.
Nicely done, Debbie! Your arrangement makes for an appetizing snack and a lovely, colourful photo.
Today's photo contest pick is called "Two-lips." Get it?
Imelda Darwish sent us this snap from Adel's Garden in Somerset, N.S.
"My husband has the most glorious gardens. These tulips have been kissed by the sun!" she writes. Glorious, indeed. A clever idea and a lovely photo. Thanks Imelda!
11-year-old Alik Winter is the talented artist behind today's photo contest pick. His grandmother, Linda Jones, sent us this photograph of his work over the weekend.
"We refer to his tulip picture as a Picasso in the making It was done several years ago and I thought he captured the shape of the tulips and leaves so well at such a young age and loved his choice of colours," she writes.
We agree! Nice work, Alik. Keep it up :)
"I took this shot of the sunrise and it made a perfect shape of a flower," writes Isabelle Marozzo of Norland, Ont.
Isabelle uploaded this shot through her CBC Community Your News account, and we couldn't help but notice that she's quite the shutterbug! We almost selected Disco Pansy, but ended up going with this cool "sun flower" instead.
Nice work Isabelle. We love your creative images. Keep them coming!
Pussy willow? Cattail? Meowigolds?
CBC Community member Ryan Crouse couldn't figure out what this "new type of flower" his mother was planting should be called.
Can we suggest "Paw-nsy?"
Ryan took this photo at his family farm in Wroxton, Sask. and sent it to us from his CBC Your News Community profile.
"Painted Pansies" comes to us from CBC Community member Shawnamac in Stewiacke, N.S.
She used a unique blend of digital painting and photography called "paintography" to create this beautiful image.
A refreshing take on our flower power theme!
Thom Kane sent us this photograph through the CBC Community Flickr pool and we were "drawn" to it instantly.
Titled "A Rose is...", this photograph is simple, yet powerful. It will evoke warm memories for those enjoyed playing with sidewalk chalk as a child. It may even inspire some of us to get outside and rediscover the fun of scraping out a pretty flower in the driveway, the alleyway, or even on a piece of construction paper indoors.
Thanks for reminding us of how much fun chalk can be, Thom! Great photo.
Today's photo comes to us from CBC Community member Sandy Maxted of Toronto.
It may look like a digital job, but Maxted actually took this flower's photo through a glass kaleidoscope.
The results, as you can see, are beautiful. Very Instagram-esque! We love how Sandy put her own, neat twist on May flowers.
