Summer Garden June-Early July 2021

Tropical Storm Elsa brought much needed rain into the garden today with for us none of the wind or worry such a storm can spawn. The sun just broke through. I spent part of the rainy afternoon sifting through some summer garden pictures searching for longer views of the plantings instead of the closeups I usually prefer. Applying effects from an app called Waterlogue softened the scenes into watercolor paintings. With filter names such as Soaked, Verdant, Natural, Eventide and Bold the images make the garden appear better groomed than actually it is, more dreamy.

    Beautiful effect. I love it for the longer views, but I think my favorite is the maroon/burgundy daylily closeup. You have so much color in the garden, it seems to be holding up well to the heat, and will only explode even more following the rain.

      Thanks Kris. I didn’t do many of the butterflies in this series but may focus on them another time. Today, we’re having a real old-fashioned thunderstorm at the moment. Much more wind than yesterday but don’t expect it to be a problem.

      I think I got it out of my system for now! I have really enjoyed the callas. Some have held up from a Monday vase for 3-4 weeks.

    What a creative idea, Susie, I love the images especially the first ones where the colours are natural. Of course the pics have only turned out painterly because your garden IS painterly. Glad you’ve had some rain, everything looks so fresh and happy.

        Oh, that sounds awful Annette! I just watched an episode of Gardener’s World that suggested we could learn to live with slugs, but it wasn’t very convincing.

    Oh how glorious, Susie – the watercolour effect accentuates the inherent beauty of the blooms. I thought I had a favourite when I first started scrolling through, but soon realised that was impossible!

      Thanks Cathy. I couldn’t choose favorites either which is why I posted so many. I don’t like to apply filters to my photos in general but it was a fun exercise.
