The summer flowers are now coming into their own after the first rush of colour from the early Spring plants. I decided to take a walk around with my camera and, remembering the problems I've had photographing flowers in bright sunshine, I purposely chose an overcast day. I think the result was an overall better rendering of the contrast and especially the colours.
I've posted quite a few more pics this time.
So come with me on a short tour of my back garden.
(That sounds very pompous, it's not as if it's a country estate!)
|I'm doing more container gardening these days. |
This is our patio.
|The view from the patio looking down the garden.|
|Fuchsias, a favourite of mine.|
|"Apricot Shades" Begonia. Another favourite.|
|At the bottom of our garden, more containers.|
|Dahlia, first I've grown.|
|A few more Fuchsias.|
|We have lots of Buddleias to attract Butterflies, this is a|
dwarf version which we have two of.
|Standard Salix tree with potted Begonias.|
I throw a few begonias into pots to move around
and fill spaces.
|Single flower from our "Rose of Sharon" shrub which is flowering profusely.|
|"Apricot Shades" Begonias in a basket.|
|Finally, back to the patio where Suzi is hinting that it might be time for lunch.|
