no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.

What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.



  1. Thank you for the wonderful shots from last summer. I like coneflowers very much. I collect as many as I can of them. There are so many different kinds of them. I love them all.

    1. The coneflower is such a strong plant here. They are survivors!

  2. Me encanta que las fotografías sean naturales, las mías también lo son tal como se ven en la naturaleza. Vi a la araña, también una mariposa a la que la araña espera para cazarla. Besos.

    1. I am always fascinated by that "Ghost Spider" whenever I find them in the gardens. And yes, there is a butterfly that he is about to catch!

  3. Amazing composition and floral vibe throughout

    1. Thanks but I owe it all to the plants etc. Glad you were able to stop by and checkout the gardens.

  4. Lovely blog shots. The days are getting longer now!

  5. Such beautiful flowers and gorgeous larger views from your garden!
    It's snowing here also today and the sunlight and colours of your photos are really appreciated. :)

  6. Happy you enjoyed your visit. True the views here are really nice - and like you snow will be here tonight.
