A Walk through the Gardens. . .
. . . for my mother, a walk through the August landscape.
always a favorite.
I had an entire hillside planted with it this year, and it is going to seed right now.
Salvia Patens, the clear blue is always a Summer delight.
This photo actually does not show how very blue the blossoms are.
The blossom of a mildly spicey pepper, the Hungarian Black.
The intoxicating oriental lilies, which without would be
a summerless Summer for me.
The only remaining dahlia that survived the hard freeze last Winter.
I lost the giant, pie-plate sized white ones.
The next three images are just lowly potato blossoms!
A simple white snap dragon, dressed in bridal attire.
Sunset through the broccoli seed pods, reflecting off the water,
creating a double sunset.
Dead grasses and fallen leaves, victims of a long dry summer with no rain.
