Summer Blooms


I took this shot last summer in my mother's garden. My mother has that wonderful green thumb that can get anything to grow. She has a yard full of glorious color each spring and summer. This is a purple cone flower. It loves sun and blooms profusely in her yard.

This shot actually came out as I pictured it. That doesn't always happen for me. I was trying to get a shallow depth of field and was working at composing for the rule of thirds. I was pleased with how this image turned out. And it will always make me think of my mother's garden.
