A Late Summer Garden: Part FOUR (oh, and a visitor on the same day!)

Thanks for continuing to follow my blog and this series of late garden photos
as you await my autumn photos to arrive....
I am still gone on many a hike to get autumn photos for future blogposts
for you,
thus pre-publishing these garden photos for you in the meantime.

One of my favorite summer flowers: daylilies!:

And on a trip out on the lake on the same day?
An eagle landed!:

Wasn't this supposed to be a blogpost about a GARDEN??

Well then,
back to business!!!

A closer look at the inside of a clematis:


I love them...I grew my first one in my garden this year and was thrilled!


A week later, the wind blew it down.

Isn't that how life goes?

Victory and defeat.

Ah, but that makes the victories all the sweeter!

That's okay--I loved the eagle shots!! Awesome!
The inside of the clematis is gorgeous! All of the colors in the petals that I wouldn't have noticed from farther away and the orange bursting from the center--delicious!
Great post! :)

Loree said...

Superb!! Beautiful photos :) I love your new background.

Joe Kerrigan said...

Your photos are lovely.

Unknown said...

You should be getting paid big bucks for these photos! Awesome. The eagle is majestic.

Valerie said...

An eagle, wow! I wish I could see one in my garden. I had a huge display of foxgloves in the garden this year and hopefully next year. Instead of ripping them out I could them down to enable new growth. The insects will be pleased.

Beautiful images, one and all but what a thrill to be visited by that Baldie. What a gorgeous bird.
