Hope everyone is well this fine Tuesday =-)
Blooming flowers are getting harder to find and I usually know where they hide! This season slipped by me. completely slipped. This is difficult for me to accept, as I still have so many things to do before the ground freezes.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it, however I have become an Ordained Minister. I will be officiating at my best friend’s wedding on October 4th. Now don’t misunderstand the title. You do not have to believe in a god to become a minister. I believe there is a life force/karma type dealio, however that is about as far as I go.
These photos are all from my new camera. Much, much better focus from this camera. I don’t need to take 50 photos, only about 10 now 😉 The distance isn’t much better, maybe gives me a discernible extra 10′ feet that I can make something out.
Apple – Malus domestica
These are in my yard. Not so bad! I’ve not eaten one yet, but they look nice and plumb. Surely a pie will be made. MMmm, Pie!!
Arisaema triphyllum – jack-in-the-pulpit, bog onion, brown dragon, Indian turnip, American wake robin or wild turnip.
Japanese Forest Grass ~ Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’
Little Bunny Fountain Grass ~ Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Little Bunny”
This grass only gets a foot wide, so YES! You DO have room for a grass in that tiny garden =-)
Huge-ass Astilbe! ‘Maggie Daley’ at 28″ inches high.
Speedwell ~ Veronica ‘First Love’
Hosta ~ Not sure of species, however these are at my house and these smell like gardenias. I cut these for my bedroom. Ah, serenity =-)
A Mayapple, apple! These normally get taken by the little furries that scurry under the leaves. Want to see it blooming?
Butter & Eggs ~ Linaria vulgarus
A cute dragonfly.
Two different Hydrangea paniculata’s ~ Tardiva on the left and Limelight on the right.
