I have spent many sunrises and sunsets in the garden taking photos for
my on-line photography class,
Capturing the Beauty of Flowers by The Perfect Picture School of Photography.
Here a selection of what was blooming in the garden this week.
I do not know the latin name of this plant, the common name is called Elephant Ears.
The leaves are very large, grey in colour, fuzzy and have tall stalks of white flowers.
The John Cabot Explorer rose is just coming into flower.
It has been a battle this year with the caterpillars eating all the leaves and flower buds.
This is the green leaf Tradescantia, I also have the yellow or golden leaf
Tradescantia, but it is not flowering yet.
The Golden Leaf Mock Orange is just starting to bloom.
There is a wonderful scent from the flowers and the bumblebees
are very busy working within the flowers.
This peachy apricot coloured Poppy was a volunteer.
Is was just starting to open when I took its' picture, the petals are still krinkly.
This Gaillardia was glowing in the setting sun.
This is a new peony I planted last fall.
'Krinkled White' has a very pale pink flower with yellow centres.
I hope you enjoyed visiting and wondering through the garden.
Have a wonderful weekend and
I hope you get into the garden for some dirty knees!
