Macro photography and summer gardens

Yes winter is still here.... it's cold, white, and because of a constant cloud cover, very uninteresting for taking pictures.  I thought maybe I would revisit some of the images taken during the year, and I found this cache of old photos from the summer.  I was testing an old Pentax macro lens with the Sony NEX-7, and focus peaking.  I was planning on testing it out how well it would perform in a macro situation.  I was quite impressed how well that worked.  Here are some images from that day.  Enjoy!
