In my garden – late summer shots

September 19, 2011

Having done a photography course at the V&A I came home to play around with my macro lens in my garden. Here are some late summer shots taken last month.

Bee on Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm'

The bed that I dug and planted in spring last year

Gaura lindheimeri Karalee White

Foeniculum vulgare 'Purpureum'

Crocosmia seedheads

Clover (Trifolium repens) in the grass. Comes up if I don't get round to mowing the lawn and the bees love it. Who knew how pretty it is too.

Pelargonium australe. I love how the petals look pearlescent this close up.

Birch leaf
