In Your Face #3

In Your Face!!!

Me, me, me.  Look at me.  No, look at me.  Better yet, skip all those and look at me!  Walking through the Gardens at Waters East, one almost hears this constant refrain.  Every plant wants attention.  Every bloom is screaming – “I’m so beautiful just look at me!”  In many cases they are right.  Take a look at some of the beauties basking in the sun and calling to be the center of your attention. Checkout the detail of some of the garden residents.

All of these “portraits” were take here in the gardens.  Self centered though they may be, the flowers do make you stop and stare.  They seem to be doing “their thing” just for you.  So why not indulge them for a few moments while walking the paths.

In this posting of In Your Face;  a “regular” photo of the flower will be displayed followed by a “close-up” to show some of the detail that is such an interesting part of the  plant.

Here then are photos for this posting

  1. Loved the echinaceas and echinops - but your photo of the huge perennial plantings at the beginning is truly inspiring!

  2. Tutto questo mi fa già venire voglia di primavera!! :D
