Closer and closer.....



I got up bright and early and straightened up the cabin. Jack made a dump run (no pickup at the cabin). Then I went out to my little garden and took some pictures. I wandered down the lane to my neighbor's and took some pictures of her flowers. There is a lady slipper growing wild in her garden but that shot would have had to be a "crawl on your belly" vignette - too hard to get up in the woods. So I wandered closer and saw her amazing Irises.  I came back to the cabin and played with a still life. So let me share the results with no more talking.














Have a great week!

To play is to relax and get in tune with our inner child...

Hi Carol, I have also been up with the sun and out taking pictures, the flowers are so beautiful with the morning dew. My Iris are finished so I have moved onto leaves. Fabulous shots!! Enjoy the week.

Hi Carol, Your flowers are so pretty and I like your playing with the different programs. I will have try some with my pictures to see if I can improve them. We must be in a tornado watch because my weather bug is blinking at me. We have been having a lot of crazy weather and the flooding in our area is not mother nature, but man made which is causing a lot of people heartache. Hope you are enjoying your summer. Have a great week. Your Missouri Friend.

So lovely...and it's fun to see that your garden or your neighbor's as the case may be is in the same phase as my own. I don't feel so behind now. ;D

Wow Carol, you take wonderful photos. I would never have thought to include a Bermuda Onion and boy does it add interest to the photo. Hope Maine is treating you well. Have a great rest of the week.

Sounds like your all settled again. That's big Carol, but it looks like a great summer getaway. My favorite shot is your zinnia, so beautiful!
