Summer's gone but there's still some color on the old homestead!
There's not a lot of summer left, here in Taos, so today, at lunch, as I was looking at the sunflowers in Thea's garden, I thought maybe I'd better get in another garden shot, while I had the chance,
This little sunflower, standing and glowing all alone, posing, it seems in front of a child's rusted antique wagon, has a power to please that would be diminished in a group. This corner of Thea's garden has come alive with the appearance of this lonesome bit of joy.
I glanced out the office window and saw this guy. I grabbed my iPhone and caught him just as he was leaving. You know the old saying by now, the best camera is the one you have in your shirt pocket.
Yet another corner of Thea's garden, seen from our breakfast table.
In a garden full of color, sometimes a single pink geranium is enough.
Another bit of beauty in Thea's garden.
Nope, it's not a bug. It's not a space vehicle. It's an iris bulb. Thea tells me it's necessary to occasionally thin the irises, and those you dig up can be planted in a new location. When I saw this bulb lying on the portal table, waiting to be relocated, out came my iPhone.
Here's an iris from Thea's garden. She grows 'em, I shoots 'em!
