Signs of the season

I track the seasons by what's in bloom, and right now we have daylillies, hydrangeas, blackberries and monarda (bee balm) all around us. It's been beautiful weather lately (finally!) and after all the rain we had before, everything is blooming lush and full.

I like gardening, my garden is very small but full of flowers, so I guess we could share a lot of points of view...

Very nice! I hope you had on a long sleeved shirt if you were picking any of those blackberries!

Great colours. We have all the same except the flower in the lower right hand corner, monarda (bee balm).

I always love your flora shots (the tulip earlier in the season was such a breathtaking and memorable shot!). These are just gorgious! Quilt artist Ruth B. McDowell has wonderful quilts of lillies this color and of bee balm (I have a link to her work on my page). May I ask what camera and lens types you use for your flower shots? Really wonderful!

Kim, thanks for the nice comment! I have a Canon Powershot G3, which has a decent macro lens on it. I confess I did not use a tripod for these shots - I just steadied the camera on whatever was handy. I am wishing for a digital SLR like the Nikon D50 or D70, but it's not in the budget this year (or any year!)
