These photos were in a folder called: 2015-07-09 Yard. I only kind of remember taking them so putting this together is similar to viewing a post of mine for the first time. On this “outing” in my yard I didn’t take many pictures and they were pretty evenly divided between insects and flowers. I’ll show the flowers today and the insects next week.
All but one of the flower photos in this post are Shasta daisies. Following are four variations on the Shasta daisies.
That last daisy photo above is one of my favorite flower photos this year. As soon as the raw file popped up for preview on my PC monitor I thought of the first stanza of the Dylan Thomas poem, Do No Go Gentle Into That Good Night.
“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
In case you would rather leave this post in a lighter frame of mind, here is a photo of some roses in all the pride and glory of a full bloom.
Thank you for stopping by.
