Yard flowers from my old house
Anyway, I took some photos of a couple of flowers in the back yard at that house. I have done that before but don't remember seeing these first ones last year. Pat says they are some kind of a lily and I guess it is one that grows very well here so some people consider them to be weeds. I think they are pretty.
Does anyone know what kind of flower this is for sure?
These are the same ones but with the camera backed away a little to show more of them. Maybe you can see more of them but it really is a bit confusing since there are so many of them in view.
This one I remember is a climantis. There were some photos from the same plant that climbs the arbor from my deck to the yard that I posted last summer. They were taken with a tripod and the 90mm macro lens. These were hand held and just with the 18 - 200mm zoom lens.
I'll have to take the camera on the tripod out into our yard here at the new house. Pat does a much better job of gardening than I do so they are a lot prettier here. I have been told that the buyers of my house like to garden and that is what that place needs, someone who enjoys doing that type of thing. It has a yard that potentially could be very beautiful. With this hot weather I may not have to mow that lawn again!
I have them in my yard too.
Have a great trip!
Sorry for not dropping by your blog for quite a while it seems, and i have your link on my Outhouse blog.
Nice to hear that you are doing well in your new path in life.
I just had surgery for a hernia a few days ago, I had intended going to the open day on the new Tacoma Narrows Bridge today but my Pat thought it was too far to drive after my surgery, and she is always right.
I love to putter in my garden. I sometimes wornder what would happen to it all if anything ever happened to me. A silly thing to worry about. I know these new owners will really get alot of pleasure out of these beauties.
