Since spring is here & where I`m located might be a bit ahead of your calender, I may as well post some early yard beauties.
I took these at sunset tonight to show you that my gardens do amaze me with the surprises I get to discover on a daily basis.
I usually am out in the yards here taking shots of the sunsets, but at this time I`m on the search for blossoms.
I`m on a daily mission so as not to miss the opening of some of my special flowers, the night bloomers that I vainly refer to as my "Specialty" in horticultural circles.
I`m only special because I get to share these blooms that I consider unique & that they`ve chosen me as their ambassador.
How vain is that.
So knowing that I have two buds keeping me in suspense, I spend the evenings in hopeful anticipation of their breaking through to my view.
It is quite special actually to see them open. It takes about an hour, & I often times spend the whole hour watching their "coming out".
Although tonight was not their night to freak me out, I still enjoy the time I spend in my little private world of wonders.
Here are some of them. All these images are shown as I shot them, against the western sky. I do try & use the fence as a backdrop, as it reminds me of the freedom these blossoms portray. As a wise man once asked, "Did you see the cow slip under the fence", a statement akin to "the cow jumped over the moon, & the dish ran away with the spoon".
I hope you enjoy, & share with me the expectation of the unknown, for I never know what color morphs will burst forth when my "special" blossoms open.
On Planet Earth, I have more of my garden delights.
I hope you have a garden as peaceful.
Please don`t let the perception, others may have of you, deter you from being kind to everyone you encounter.
