Summer Colour

I love colour in the garden. These are a few of my favorite plants from the garden. Flowers brighten my day and I hope they brighten yours too.

I captured these beauties during the evening when the sun was low. I find that during mid day the light is to harsh and the colours don't show up as well.

Hello Janice. Lovely flowers and beautiful colours. Yes I do agree with the midday light and this case waiting until the evening gave very good results. Nicely composed picture. Thanks :-)

PS. I am no TL now. I guess I have a few pictures that don't belong on TE but would look good here :-)

Hi Janice, the blue lobelia really stands out yet complements the yellow flowers.I agree, we need our flowers to brighten our days.
You had a decent light to show off your flowers,was surprised that you did not need to use flash.
TFS, regards Jean.
