Since we’re already in August (!), it seems time for a flower roundup. The hydrangea in the side yard has started flowering! The blue is gorgeous. Here’s my shot of the view from the house:
And Kevin’s shot with the macro lens and the tripod:
The roses keep blooming, and they’re really getting prettier and prettier. The biggest one is about 5″ in diameter.
Our sunflower is alive, but deeply unhappy. It’s very pale, stunted (only 16″ tall), and doesn’t follow the sun. Sorry, dude. If I could cook you up more light, I would.
I meant to take a photo of the daylilies of the front yard and then the rains came and I missed them. Also lovely while they lasted.
