The dog days of summer have arrived, which means that I spend most of my time indoors. So, I spend time on my garden writing, knitting, trying new recipes and catching up on reading some great books.
I also decided to tackle my photo library. It is very large and filled with gardening photos, covering everything from close-ups of favorite blossoms, unique containers, DIY projects, vegetable gardening and pictures taken of the beautiful Southwest.
Over the next few weeks, I won’t be doing a lot of gardening outdoors, (if I can help it), so I thought that I would share with you some of my favorite pictures, grouped by subject.
This week, I would like to share with you some of my favorite close-up photos of flowers.
So, to start it off, here is a photograph from one of my most popular blog posts…
|Queen’s Wreath Vine (Antigonon leptopus)|
Aren’t these pink blossoms beautiful?
I took this picture on the Arizona State University campus some years ago.
You can learn more about this vine and why it does so well in low-desert gardens, here.
I hope you come back tomorrow for my next close-up flower photo AND I will be announcing the winner of the giveaway for one of my favorite gardening books, “Hellstrip Gardening”.
