I find it rather inspiring how some folks can turn a tiny space into an inviting garden.

I shot this photo in the first week of September when the summer season was winding down.

Autumn is here! The days are getting shorter and more temperate…the nights are getting longer and cooler…and the Chrysanthemums are everywhere.

IN THE FIELD: Last Blast Of Summer

A few weeks ago I took this photo of a Rose Of Sharon blossom on one of the last absolutely perfect summer days. It was mid morning, the sun was shining, the air was cool, and the sky was blue with puffy white clouds scattered about.

I will have to remember to go back to the archives and view this image in February when the temperatures are in the 20’s and the wind chills are in the single digits.

IN THE FIELD: Exotics Close to Home

A few weeks ago, on a hot sultry morning, we were walking the pups at a very leisurely pace through our neighborhood. We headed down a street we don’t normally frequent, but our canine companions insisted. Sometimes it’s best not to argue with a terrier.

The short street is lined with tidy homes surrounding a cul-de-sac. As we waited for the doggies to finish smelling whatever it was that had their total focus, I noticed these tropical beauties growing in a front garden of one of the homes. I didn’t have my camera with me on this muggy morning,

After we returned home with the dogs and they were settled, I grabbed my gear and headed back to the house where I had seen these hibiscus plants. I asked the homeowner it I could photograph the exotic flowers growing in the garden. She was happy to oblige my wishes, and in return I presented her a print of the photo.

IN THE FIELD: Late Bloomers

A few weeks ago I was walking up an embankment by a creek’s edge heading for the shade provided by a stand of maple trees. It was cool by the creek, but once I got away from the water I needed relief from the hot sun. In the shade of the old trees was a rather sizable grouping of Hosta plants. I have no idea which variety they are, but the leaves were some of the largest Hosta leaves I have ever seen. Not only was it nice and cool under the trees, but it sure was a pleasant surprise to see these plants blooming this late in the summer.
