Just some quick morning snaps of pinks and reds around the garden, the sun dancing in and out. Playing with the aperture for selective blur, positioning for framing against the most colorful of background to enhance my subjects, this is the first I picked up my camera since I left PA in the early morn of October 1. It is also the first post I put together since Can You Believe, BEEbots? The Fling posts were all in the hopper awaiting a turn to upload. Hope you enjoyed the photos.
Since I have been missing showing the garden for a couple of months, and was sick for two weeks and not even outside in nature, I wandered out yesterday to take some pics of the pinks and reds in the garden. I am still not in the ‘pink’ but am feeling much better.
This is my neighbor’s rose above, (mine are red and white and the white will be in the next post).
It really is a particularly colorful Fall this year. I hope to get out and photograph the Fall leaf color when I am feeling a bit more chipper. We have been having weather in the 70s. Midnight temps are in the 60s and I have been missing the great weather.
I did not have a clue the mallow was blooming. Or the rose standard in bloom.
Bees are still a buzz… even though the pickings are waning.
I have two more posts on the Gentling garden that are going to appear a bit later. I always save that type of post for when I am away from my house, computer or camera.
Fall is here and it is good to be seasonal. Plenty of time for the rest of the Fling and garden walk images to come in the colder months. This warm weather is making me really curious what to expect for the winter season. I always want snow, lots of it. But this year, I am hoping that the snow holds off.
I am planning a trip to see my cousin in St. Lucia in January and I want that plane off the ground. My trip is planned with another blogging buddy and we are anticipating some seaside relaxing. My cousin owns a hotel and two villas, so I am sure our trip will be fun and maybe a bit luxurious. So Mother Nature, make my winter a mild one, at least until the end of February.
Mother Nature was very generous this year with Fall color. The colors in the garden are aglow and I did not want to miss the vivid rainbow of opportunity.
Yellow, blue, white and oranges of the garden are coming up next. The garden is a kaleidoscope of color any which way you turn. I shot the front yard in wide-angle so you will see the turn of the season up next.
Plus – a reflective post on thoughts, with photos of course. And here is a thought to ponder…
What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
