Playing in the sun

I've a had a few chances to go out and play with the sunshine and see how all of this rain has helped things grow.  Roses along the fence, sneaking through the split rail!


The wind picked up and showed me a surprise - red helicopter seeds!  I couldn't resist taking some photos of these beautiful trees with their special pods.


A garden planted by a team of folks all in one day.  They had the overgrown and old bushes pulled out, then designed this new layout and got to digging!  It is really starting to fill in now.


And holy cow, check out these hostas!


Just me, the camera, and some fun in the sun.


Have a good weekend. I'm headed out to look for some new scenic places to photograph.  I decided to enter some photos in the state fair this year...so some new ones wouldn't hurt!

M.E.

I've never seen red helicopter seeds, only brown ones.
