Black-Eyed Susans

Black-Eyed Susans II_edited-1_wm

My wife planted Black-Eyed Susans a few years ago and they really took off.  They will spread like wild fire if you don’t keep a tight reign on them.  I see  them on lots of golf courses in the Midwest.

Spring in the Backyard – Touched Up

I shot and posted this image earlier but brought it back up for a little work.  Particularly the Flowering Crab and Daisy Plants.

Single Cone Plant

I found this image in my archives from April 2012. The plant was a bit haggard but, in my opinion, the color out weighed what might have been –  just another Cone Plant.

Muffin asleep on Flower Guard

Well, Muffin, was caught dozing while protecting our flowers.  We did not put her on KP duty.

Early Spring 2017

Early Spring 2017_edited-1_wm

I took this image on April 14th this spring from inside the house as it was to cool for me to go out.  I’m afraid it’s not as well focused as any of us would like  – particularly the Flowering Crab.  I worked with it a bit in Photoshop Elements 6 but was unable to improve it beyond what you see here.  Anyway, it was early morning light and the Flowering Crabs flower’s are a crimson red. On the left is a Lilac Bush which, at the time, had not blomed.

Large Hosta

This large Hosta, transplanted by my wife, Jean, from another part of our yard, is growing up against our garage.  It is really going to take over.

Landscaping – always a continuing process

Landscaping_wm

We have been doing some landscaping over the past years.  Just beyond our fence is the bicycle/walking/jogging track developed and laid by our Park District.  My wife, Jean, with the help of one of our daughter’s, Stephanie, get all the credit here. The work in progress,  the upper left of the image, is a Trumpet Vine.  The large trellis has yet to be fastened to the fence.  It’s attached to a smaller trellis with green garden tape/velcro at this point.

Stella de Oro

Day Lillies_edited-1_wm

My wife has a green thumb as you can see.  For your info …  I shot this with my Canon 75-300 Zoom Lens – and my Canon T3 set on Landscape. I don’t have a Macro lens so this works for me when shooting more than one subject.  Of course my camera has a Macro setting but I like the long lense.  This shot is hand held!  Just my way to have fun.

I took down the first post of this image because something caused my right hand menu to overlay it.  SORRY!

A Pot of Petunias

These Petunias will fill out even more according to my wife, Jean. They will completely fill the pot!
