Beautiful evening light

I love taking photos in the soft evening light, like these that I took yesterday evening, can you see how shiny the light makes the pictures?


This is how the Clematis Multiblue looks after it has lost all the petals, I find it is still very pretty:

I had to add my three Allium Globemasters again lol because I think they look like a snowman from this angle, can you see what I mean?

Hi Carol;
I found your link through Daisy's blog. I am not a gardener at all, but I truly appreciate anyone with a green thumb - and your flowers are absolutely gorgeeous! How lucky you are to have such a peaceful haven in your own backyard. I will visit often to see the summer's progression! Deb

I love all the pictures but especially the one with the evening light. It casts a romantic feel to the photo. What beautiful soft colours, you must never want to go to work with such beauty. TWT

These have such a lovely soft quality about them, just like that particular time of day.
I like them very much Carol.

Wow Again !

Just wonderful pictures of your heavenly garden.

I just can't get over it.

I looked for you in the gazing balls. So beautiful spiked on sticks ...leaning to and fro.

The Clematis is beautiful even with it's bloom off.

In it's Old Age.

Love to come here and gaze at everything. Pretend I can walk thru the garden with you.

Gorgeous garden Carol. I love my garden and gardening, but I am working with clay and rock and no top soil, so after six years I am just beginning to see some results. I planted some globemaster allium and can't remember where I put them. So they must not have come up......I only got three bulbs. Well I had an enjoyable romp through your garden. I think I will link to your site, because I want to return and visit on occasion. I know what you mean about the rain, we had a rain storm and my stargazer and casa blanca lilies are now lying on their side. They were so heavy as it was......I have stakes, some, but obviously not enough.
