Not only are your flowers beautiful, but I love how you captured the sun shining through them in your photos.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Everything looks so vibrant. I have a weakness for hollyhocks, yours look healthy.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Hi Mytime,
thank you for the nice comments,..i guess its become a habit taking shots of the flowers with the sun shining through,..many times while taking a tea break i spot the sun hitting a flower in a certain way and grab the camera,..it doesn't always work but when it does it looks great.

============================================================

Hi Schoolhouse,
this was my first year growing Hollyhocks,..we get so much rain here,..and mists,..the Hollyhock leaves get too wet and problems set in,..i guess i was just lucky,..no problems at all,..every Cottage Garden should have them,..a multitude of flowers,..vertical.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Today the sun was shining.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

It puts a glow to the Hollyhocks.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Oh, Wow, you grow so many things that we can't even attempt in Texas! Love your pictures, especially the roses, you're getting me interested in getting back into photography after many years.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Thank you Ogrose,..one name comes to mind which describes where i live,..Green Isle,..and its an apt name,..we do have lots of greenery the whole year round,..but then we also have too much moisture,..so everything will grow,..alas even Mildew.

I just love to capture what i see in the garden,..i use a small pocket camera,..a Sony Cybershot DSC-W55,..it does the job but some colours are very hard to capture,..red and orange in particular,..oh do take out the camera again and experiment.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

A very large and heavy rose.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Another top heavy,..in fact it breaks the canes.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

An attractive visitor.

The Doggy Walk Route starts at the location of the above picture and ends up back at my house which is near the Castle.

All beautiful, but I especially love the Crocosmia and Fuchsia combo.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Just a little piece of heaven, thanks for brightening up my morning.

Hi Mytime,
the Crocosmia were already growing in that area when i planted the Fuchsia,..in fact it was the only place i had for the Fuchsia so i am glad you like the combo as i was never sure about those two colours,..the picture below was taken in the last few moments.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Hi Annette,
glad i was able to brighten up your morning,..some more Crocosmia.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

I have a border of Sedum which was covered by Aquilegia up to last month,..its 10Ftx6Ft,..the Sedum is planted in long containers with rocks for it to cascade over,..its just started to flower,..though very late due to being covered but knock on wood it may flower completely before the season runs out.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

The 10Ft border.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

The 6Ft border.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Beautiful all the way around...photography, plant choices, plant locations, all of it.

 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Thank you Kathi,..its nice to know you stroll through the paths,..just now they are very narrow as plants have filled in,..but the benefit of that is you can not help brushing against plants like the Curry Bush,..Lavender,..Mint,..Lemon Balm,..Tangerine Sage,..and Purple Fennel.

============================================================

Thank you tj for the nice comments,..glad you enjoyed the views.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

There are several paths.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

The Main path.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Side path.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Halfway path.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Continue through halfway path.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

First path off main path.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Third path off main path,..and so five paths in all.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Only the main path can be seen from the back door,..you have to go look for the paths.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Beautiful! I also especially love the Crocosmia and Fuchsia combination and would have never thought about putting them together.


 o
RE: This Weeks Blooms.

Thank you Sandi,..those Crocosmia are popping up around the red roses as well,..its a dark part of the garden so they brighten things up.
