It is difficult to realize that summer is drawing to a close as we are still experiencing July-like weather with very warm days and nights and light summer breezes. Nearly every day is filled with sunshine and some humidity. Perfect growing weather! It is hard for me to do anything inside so I’ve been very lax in keeping up with my blog.
The summer of 2015, although it began wet and cool, was perfect for my gardens. Our grass did not dry up in August and the perennials have continued to bloom beautifully.
Many of the photos that I am going to post were taken with my Canon 100-400 mm. telephoto lens which I normally use for my wildlife pictures. It allows me to focus nicely on the individual blossoms, especially the centres of the flowers. A few of the garden pictures were shot with my Tamron 18 – 270 mm. lens.
I am also updating my Flickr site today. Feel free to click on the link in the right-hand sidebar to see a few more photos.
