We finally had a break in the weather, and this morning it was downright cool! Felt lovely. As I inspected the garden, I was inspired to grab my camera and try out the close up lens.
Lantana love (exactly how many pictures can one person take of Lantana?)
A different bloom on the same plant:
And a bloom from a different lantana:
Petunia love. I love this petunia so much. It doesn’t photograph as beautiful as it is in person. The blossoms are extra large and have a heavier look than most petunias. And then of course, there’s the whole “its apple blossom colored” thing going on.
I love that they’ve been able to add yellow to the petunias. We had a few drops of rain this morning!
Moss rose. One of the few blooms on the plant. The Queen thinks they are a delicacy.
Squash blossom! These are soooo huge and sooo vibrant. I guess the little ants like them too.
The Japanese lantern plant.
