COLOR

Summer's gone but there's still some color on the old homestead!

 

SUMMER’S ENDING

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,

 

ALONE

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.

 

 

THEA’S GARDEN…AGAIN

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.

 

ATTICUS AND THE RED HOT POKERS

Yet another corner of Thea's garden, seen from our breakfast table.

 

MORNING LIGHT

Bouganvilla and Chamisa.

 

GARDEN DETAIL

In a garden full of color, sometimes a single pink geranium is enough.

 

IN THEA’S GARDEN

Another bit of beauty in Thea's garden.

 

RELOCATION

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.

 

 

DANCING IN THE BREEZE

Here's an iris from Thea's garden. She grows 'em, I shoots 'em!
