I call this my "not for human consumption" tea, because I use it for art only.
After taking a few photos, I realized there was something in my garden I had not seen before. I've had online conversations/comments with friends that the camera picks up things we don't see, sometimes until it's too late to edit it out. Add to that a busy background, and it makes it hard to see anything but "noise."
Upon closer inspection, the roses are still overshadowed by that red pick-up in the background. And obviously, this puny camera I'm using doesn't distinguish the foreground from the background. Of course, you can see the neighbor's butchered tree and remaining stump in the background with NO PROBLEM.
This photo isn't a whole lot better, but at least you can see how the roses and all the other greenery have leaned toward the sunny side of the yard. They look more bent over than someone's 90 year old father! However, I count at least two buds that look like they might bloom in a day or two. And I might add, my front garden has never, ever looked so overgrown and tall until this year. Nothing has ever reached above the bed head and foot boards before, except the rose bush, of course.
Back on my porch,
I couldn't be outdone by Julia, who showed Mr. Dunnit's gorgeous handmade rocker last week. Actually, I was outdone. OK, this rocker was handmade, but it's a far cry from the one hand carved by Mr. D. Still, I wanted to show it off, because it has lived on my front porch since I bought this place the year I started grad school.
