I'm In the Garden...

Another short one about the gardens...

There was something about the composition of this shot - the hard metal fence, the feathery vine, and the soft purple flower - that charmed me. This will be turned into a card in the near future.I didn't know what this vine was called until Mum told me - Hummingbird Vine. I love the way it clings to the tree, curves around itself, strives upward.This little lady was so still and quiet, it would have been easy to walk past without ever noticing her...The roses were suffering from the heat, and had almost passed. This set reminded me of the circle of life...of entropy...Such delicate petals and coloring to be so boldly in the sun, but these roses weren't afraid of a little light and heat.
