THE EVENING OF THE DAY (EARLY JULY GARDEN)

"I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day."

Those shastas are so pretty. I hope your summer is going well-I can tell your garden is having a good one.

Rose said...

Beautiful, Joey! Everything just glows in your garden at twilight.

I find that evenings are the best time to enjoy the garden this time of year, too. I wilt under the heat of the sun:)

Yum. Those are beautiful night pictures. I wish I could take mine the same way. I'm just not good enough yet. Beautiful, lovely, serene.~~Dee

Oh, Joey, it looks so utterly refreshing and cool! We are facing yet another day in the near 100's so your garden is particularly inviting today! Beautiful, as ever.

Stunning photography - you make it all look so amazing.

Karen said...

I adore your mosaics, I get lost in each and every one. The flowers are so lovely in the twilight, your photography and gardening skills are amazing!

Wonderful, and a glass of red wine to finish the evening off too.
Thank you my friend.

Thank you, dear Tatyana. I love it too :)

Thanks Esther and 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'!

Hi Tina and thank you. I love the shastas that treat me well.

I hear you, Rose. Today was a wilting day in the garden. Twilight is good ... thank you.

Thank you, dear Dee. Wishing you a relief from the heat. But your gardens look stunning!

So I hear on the news, dear Kathryn. Do wish you lived near. How fun to relax beside you in 'the cool of evening'. Wishing you relief from the heat. Happy July :)

Welcome Barb and thank you. How kind.

Thank you, Karen. It was fun shooting! Had been away for almost a week ... so much had happened ... it's impossible to capture all.

Thanks fun imac :)

Thank you, Sweetbay. A small sampling of July goodies popping like fireworks.

Delighted to hear from you, dear Kate. I'm honored by your visit. Thank you for the kind works, special friend.

Agree, Eileen. I'm stunning on how fast time is flying. Thank you. Let's enjoy :)

Joey... your collages are so beautiful, they just don't come often enough! ;) I had that petunia in the top group but I don't have enough sun. Glad I can enjoy yours!!

joey said...

Barely home enough to shoot, Jewel, but when I am, it's a joy. Life changes from morning to night ... July is like a fireworks display ... I love it! Happy summer :)

Dear Joey! I love these photos of the yellow lilies with the melding of blues and greens in the background. It's so cool and calm... and reminds me to rest and relax a little bit.

Kala said...

Beautiful collage! I love that wrought iron bench Joey! And those yellow lilies. And that Van Gogh quote!

Andrea said...

Yes Joey, they look more enchanting as presented here. Now you had me again, as how to capture them like these, haha! I am again at a loss! But thanks.

joey said...

Thanks Kim ... kick back and relax!

Hi Kala and thank you. Your last post was amazing!

Thank you, Andrea. You are most kind.
