SEPTEMBER GARDEN STROLL

"Spring flowers are long since gone. Summer's bloom hangs limp on every terrace. The gardener's feet drag a bit on the dusty path and the hinge in his back is full of creaks."
~ Louise Seymour Jones
~ Sedum, heuchera, pink turtlehead, phlox, Japanese anenome

~ September garden


~ Hosta, coleus, Japanese astilbe


~ The herb garden


~ Gerbera daisy, black-eyed susan

Oooooooh! Gorgeous, gorgeous photos!! I see you have 'Henry Eilers' rudbeckia! I planted seed this spring and didn't get any. :-(

Thanks Kylee and also for noting my 'Henry Eilers' that I had forgotten the name of! Mine purchased from the nursery was still not a great performer. Through fun to photograph, it's a bit 'wimpy' and wonder if it has strength to return again next year!

You have a very interesting way of displaying your beautiful flower photos. Do you do this in Photoshop using frames and layers? For some reason I found layers to be a difficult concept to understand and have not had much success with it.

Thanks Ki ... I have Photoshop Elements 4 but for my blog I like the ease of Picasa2.
