Emerging Irises   4 comments

No plants were harmed in the shooting of these photographs: with just a black cardboard backdrop and sunlight at just the right angle, I captured these irises in our backyard.

I didn’t know until I looked at this picture on my computer that I had caught this little fly enjoying the hibiscus flower.

Mr. Blue Sky   Leave a comment

Today the sky was so blue I just had to post some pictures of it. And the fall blooms provided a nice contrast. ┬áIt was the kind of gorgeous day that made me think of one of my favorite songs that always gets my feet tapping: ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ by ELO (“Sun is shining in the sky, there ain’t a cloud in sight…”).
