All of these photos were taken in my yard. Suzanne tends the gardens.

I tried to capture the glow within as the sun lowered - late afternoon.

Almost a silhouette as the sun frames flower and leaf.

Like fairies playing jazz, every direction at once, these blossoms swing.

The inside of a poppy makes your imagination swoon as if it can affect your mind directly.

Magnolia Grape Hyacinth

Springtime brings a city of hyacinth. They look like they feel as if they're towering so high. So joyous.
Blue Daisies

When you are done looking at one thing, another wonder comes into focus.

Some blossoms are so beautiful, they look alien. Maybe that's because we don't notice the exotic nature within ourselves.
Lit Magnolia

Magnolia blossom lit by the setting sun. These blossoms only last a day or two. A wondrous show.
Starburst Hydrangeas

Two different flowers cluster on the blossoms of this unique hydrangea aside our house.

The Red Shed

Nestled in the shade is the red shed, so quite and sturdy in the background.
Daffodils Catch Sun

The sun makes certain flowers nearly fluoresce. I love when the sun begins to fall and its time to open a bottle of wine...

Insects use our wood much more than we do. A large fig bush used to sit alongside, until the deer consumed it.
Small Wood Pile

THis is the smaller pile of branches we pretend will be used as kindling some day.
Sunset on the Birch

Only on a few evenings do the sun's rays reach the birch, usually saded from the red and orange of sunset. The bird house has never seen it.
Ride the Rosebud

From this perspective, the risebud tree looks like a flower-ladened slope perfect for fairie sized sledders.
Burning Tree

Autumn brings out astounding colors in our Japanese maple.
Tulip Among Weeds

We don't plant tulips anymore. When they arrive, it si always a surprise.

Just outside our kitchen window is this magnificent bush. Like all things, a photo cannot truly capture it.

It was a very good year for roses. I wanted to captyre them glowing beore they became too heavy to stand.
Spring Buds

There is great magic just before the flowers open all the way.
On The Daisies
