It's hard to believe we are half-way through August! Where did the time go?
With the family reunions behind us and the garden getting back in shape, I plan on taking some time just to enjoy what is left of the summer. I have found a way to make summer last though. Photos!
I love taking these macro photos and I especially enjoy having them to look at now and then during our long winters. It's nice to be able to spend a few minutes examining their intricate designs in a way that isn't always possible while in the garden.
The Dianthus flower above looks as though it has been clipped with a pinking shear.
The flower color as delicate and lovely as if painted by angels!
Why this is called a Tiger Lily and not a Leopard Lily I'll never know! It has spots after all, not stripes!
The whirled beauty above is the seed head of a clematis flower.
This pink delight is called Queen of the Prairie and it reminds me of cotton candy!
As you can probably tell, I love the dark pink flowers, as in the Bee Balm above. I am always searching for more flowers in this color!
I hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at some of my garden flowers. Thank you all for visiting and leaving your lovely comments.
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
