Want a "Quickie" ? Today 7.22.14

(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken today at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 7.22.14.  The title of this posting could easily be “Mix of Colors”.  At noon, in visiting the gardens, it was easy to find so many combinations of colors.  After taking more than fifty photos, these few were chose to share as a sampling of what is blooming at this time of year, this very day, here along the shores of Lake Michigan.  There was  a lot of haze today which is being caused by the wildfires in the states of Washington and Oregon, 2000 west of the gardens and is drifting here.
Enjoy the colors

  1. Seems that many areas are affected by a smoky haze these days. We have it here in Manitoba and on a recent trip to Alberta,it was also very hay.Despite the haze,your flower images are wonderful.
