I wanted to capture the beauty of our Summer blooms. The hydrangea is my favorite hands-down. I absolutely love blue flowers and I don't think it gets better than a hydrangea in blue full-bloom!
Of course we still have roses blooming. Isn't that a staple in every garden? I love the multi-color varieties we have, but they were no longer blooming by the time I got the camera out. These salmon-colored roses are beautiful in their own right. Who doesn't love roses - a gorgeous work of nature.
Bees are all around in the summer as well. I love this shot of a bee about to land on this pink flower. Do you see it?
My herb garden recently took off and now needs a trim, but the fullness is marvelous to see! I have lavendar, sage, two varieties of thyme and cilantro here. I also love basil (again, who doesn't?), but for some reason I have better success with basil when I grow it in pots.
