07/09/10 - Another Shot in the Garden Hut Series
Both of these flowers are hybrids. In front, the yellow flower is some sort of Gloriosa Daisy, and the red flower in the back is some sort of Coneflower (Echinacea). The varieties of Coneflower that they had there yesterday were amazing including oranges and yellows too. They even make double coneflowers in pink now...it was fuzzy.
I liked the blending of the two flowers and colors in this shot. I fixed a few tiny spots and that's all.
It was 100 here again yesterday, and I had a super treat out my kitchen window. About 10 birds in succession, some at the same time, shared the birdbath. Every day between 4 and 6PM there are birds coming and going. I put together a collage of the best and funniest shots:
That's the first time I saw the Tufted Titmouse and Black-Capped Chickadee in the birdbath together. Cute!
I had so hoped a miracle would happen and my boys would be headed home early so that I could spend some time with them this weekend, but it's not happening. The passing of the last few days has seemed like an eternity. They will get home Sunday afternoon/early evening, and I will have to go back to work Monday AM. At least they will be home...
Thanks very much for your comments on the old barn/house from yesterday...
Many more Garden Hut shots in my July album starting here:
