Garden pics from today

Incredible weather we're having!

I have been enjoying the summer flush of roses this year. It's lasting much longer than usual.

The roses are Marmalade Skies, an occasional Julia Child bloom, and some Double Delight.

Coneflowers with foxgloves?!!?? In JULY????

The bunnytail grass still has not disintegrated! It's lasting forever this year.

'No Count Blues' iris blooming at an odd time of year.

My eyes hurt from looking at that last pic.

Yes, lovely. Coneflowers look good. I just got one, waiting for the blooms to open.

Everyone comments on your beautiful garden which it certainly deserves, but I want to mention your camera work. You do an excellent job in framing the area, and your camera has a long focal range which makes your pictures clear even though the area is deep. Your Iris closeup caught all the shades in the bloom without washing anything out. Al

Thanks, Al. I think I'll post two photos I took today. It's all luck. I bracket my photos and pick the best one.
