'Tis peak bloom time in my garden these few weeks...just like for everyone else ;-) But instead of my usual head-on shots, I thought it'd be fun to experiment with different angles. So...up, down, sideways I looked through the lens. On my knees, crouching, and even thought of climbing on the roof...lol. And focusing mainly on the plants, I hadn't realized how amazingly blue the sky was...until now!
Shasta Daisies, swaying in the breeze, made this hard to capture clearly.
You would laugh seeing me here...on my back, head in the dirt! as these 'Profusion Cherry' zinnias are only 8" high. Dog walkers passing were probably saying 'WTHeck..!" But I didn't care!
Morning Glories in one of the pots I showed earlier.
I was just trying to get a macro shot of the MG...didn't notice the wasp until after...look at the cool center glowing!
Meadow Rue...this stalk is over 9 feet!
Loosestrife...I haven't had problems with this plant being invasive in my garden...yet.
From the sunflower family, an annual 'Melampodium' growing between clumps of Neputa (catmint). Tons of bees here but they left me alone.
Oriental lilies with 'Mary's Gold' daylily.
Many hours and hundreds of photos...narrowed down to just a dozen...phew!
Next, I'm thinking it would be cool to get an overall view of the garden...maybe I will get up on the roof. Well, maybe tomorrow...I still have a kink in my neck!
