Butterfly’s-eye view of a purple coneflower
We recently bought a digital camera, and I’ve been experimenting with close-ups of flowers. The purple coneflowers look great, like alien pods. This must be a butterfly’s-eye view. Here’s another angle.
We’ve been lucky to have a wet and fairly cool summer, and the garden looks lush for this time of year. Here are a few more pictures from the front garden.

The white guara looks like a congregation of butterflies fluttering in the breeze. Guara likes sun and can take heat and drought, but mine grows best with a bit of filtered shade from the vitex.
