Remembering Summer

We didn't have a very good summer. The rain seemed to last forever.  However, we did have some lovely flowers and other memories, and this is the first chance I've gotten to post the pictures.













































































Remember the "Curly Stranger" from last year?  We were told by our good friend Far Side of Fifty that it was a Leopard Lily.  Below is the only bloom we got this year.




But we found one at the garden center and planted it in a pot to see if it was the same thing.  The Curly Stranger from our forest is about 1-1/2 to 2" long.  As you can see, the blooms on the plant we potted were as large as my hand.  So different from the delicate flower we thought it would be.  But still they are the same.

















Thanks for stopping by!

A Few Leftovers

These are some pictures I liked but they didn't make it into Emma's blog.  They are from our July 4th camping trip.

Blue Moon

I forgot about the Blue Moon until early this morning. And on a whim I decide to grab the tripod and go outside before the sky got any lighter. I should have changed lenses, but it didn't even cross my mind until hours later! I shot a series of photo's as the clouds were crossing the sky. Yes, there is a moon in that bright spot. I could see it through the clouds, but the camera didn't. The last three pictures were taken about 30 to 40 minutes later when the sky had lightened considerably. This was my first attempt using the night setting on my camera. If I knew what I was doing it probably would have turned out better. However, I enjoyed it, so I consider that a success!
