Beauty thru my Lens

The very last of my summer New Dawn roses, sitting on my counter. Life seems to be a continual process of saying good-bye to that which is beautiful only to say hello to a different new beauty.

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.
