Blackeyed Susan Kind of Mood

I’m sitting here snuffing and not feeling so good – my sweet granddaughters shared their cold with me last week. I thought I had resisted the bugs but today I woke up with the sniffles.

I need some Blackeyed Susans to brighten my day. I need yellow. These are from last year’s garden and although I’m enjoying the peace of my winter garden, I’m also looking forward to next summer’s explosion of color.

I just realized how much I enjoy having my photos of my flowers to play around with. It is almost like gardening but not nearly as much work. Unfortunately I can’t have the photos of my flowers if I don’t do some work upfront. It did sound too good to be true. Anyway welcome to my photo garden. I would be happy to pick you a bouquet to take back with you.

Garden Flowers of Summer

I have been busy taking pictures of the flowers in my garden and am eager to post some of them. Right now Blackeyed Susans continue to steal the show from the Moon Flowers, at least during the day. I am having a lot of fun experimenting with different angles and lighting, along with using features of the camera that I’m familiar with.

What sweethearts. They are so easy to grow and the Japanese Beetles and deer don’t bother them.

Another night flower that I didn’t show with the moon flowers is the Evening Primrose. They have a spreading habit that forms a ground cover but they aren’t invasive. What I like most about them is their clear lemon yellow color.

My New Dawn rose spent itself with its first flush of blooms and the past few weeks it has been salad for the the bugs. Now it is producing a few blooms again. I photographed these in the early light this morning.

This was a pretty yellow blog, so here is a little intense color on an annual – can’t think of the name. And I’m too tired to look it up.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share some of my garden with you. I hope it brought you some cheer.
