REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Faithful Bloomers, even in late summer

One of my nieces has had a greenhouse the past two years; I order purple and white petunias in hanging baskets.  This year, she informed me that she hadn't been happy with the white variety, so she had changed to "silver" ones.  They are pretty white with purple veins.   The basket had grown pretty leggy, so I put it on the floor of the back porch.  The flowers are thriving.  I pulled up a chair and sat with my telephoto lens in early evening, capturing many pretty petunias.

Those are very pretty with the purple veins and I love the "leaded-glass" frame! :)

These are beautiful, Evelyn -- I love the clarity of the shot, and that it looks black and white when it's really not -- Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now that I'm a "lady of leisure," I'm going to devote time to the blogosphere again.

Petunias are my old standby. When they get leggy, I pinch them off and here they come again!

Good golly, that's a lot of flowers! My petunias have been gone for over a month now. :( I miss them.
