Yard Odes and Flowers

Yesterday (Tuesday, 21 July) dawned hot and sticky and stayed that way. Despite the weather I spent some time in the late afternoon haunting the yard in search of odes. The numbers of odes were small, but there was a nice variety. The most common insect was a butterfly; the great spangled fritillary.

At some point during my rounds, I turned my attention from odes to the flowers Joan has growing in the many beds and containers around the yard.

  1. Frank, your odes appear to be sharper than in the past. Doing anything differently? Perhaps, just fine-tuning your proficiency??

    I bet Joan was impressed with your digital interpretations of her flowers. I particularly liked the Black-eyed Susan!

    As usual another great crop of images. . .
