Around the Home Garden

We’ve had some lovely flowers in the garden this year.  I hope you enjoy some of the photos from our yard and garden.

These ornamental grasses are about a foot high.  They make a nice pattern when focusing on just a few blades.

Hydrangeas form large balls of blossoms.  Ours are white, but others can be pink or blue.

I liked the stem structure from under the blossom ball.

Japanese maples have such wonderful red leaves.  When the sun shines through the leaves they glow.

Our daisies have exploded. Here I was able to selectively focus on one, leaving the rest to softly fill the background.

I didn’t know what these are, but I love the bright red blossoms.  Thank you, Jane Shoup, for pointing me in the right direction.  It looks like these are Lychnis Atrosanguinea or Rose Campion.

Thanks for taking a look at my photos.  We will be getting back to the lake soon and I hope to share more photos from there.

  1. Hi Mark,
    Always enjoy your photos. I believe the last flower is Lychnis Coronaria. It is known by some other names, too. Does it have a silvery gray stem and leaf? I think it is in the Dusty Miller family. I have hundreds of them in my flower bed in Lafayette. They self-seed very freely.
    Maybe we will run into you on the lake. We saw an eagle perched near the South Bay today and a solitary loon in our bay when we were taking a boat ride. Haven’t seen any baby loons this year. Didn’t find the pair on the north bay either.
