would be like a year without summer. Can't believe I went so many (of my early gardening years) without planting them. Now I add more and more every fall but it still doesn't feel like I have enough!
Today I re-attached my macro lens (& the world aligned again) before heading into the garden to give 'Globemaster' some singular appreciation.
I think we should title the photo below "nothing but buds" ~ what do you think?
Backing up and turning slightly, a "barely blooming" bulb comes into focus:
Are we ready for "full on fabulousity?" Oh yeah.
I love the out of focus blooms in the background. In fact, I loved them so much I kept snapping!
In the photo above, I changed direction again so that the antique birdfeeder would be included in the background (out of focus, but still, I like seeing the familiar silhouette).
Today 'Globemaster' is my favorite flower to photograph.
Tomorrow, who knows? There are so many alternates waiting in the wings....
