I wandered around the garden late this afternoon, pointing the camera almost at random.

Here are the results. Don’t miss a couple of bees. The Puerto Rico dahlia provided a sympathetic sunburst. As usual, galleries will provide titles.

This evening we dined at The Wheel Inn at Bowling Green. We both enjoyed tempura prawns and fresh salad starters. My main meal was a superb rib eye steak, chips, mushroom, tomato and peas; Jackie’s was the Wheel Inn Burger, salad, and chips with which she drank Kaltenberg, while I drank Ringwood’s best. Neither of us had room for dessert.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. Gorgeous bursts of color and bee-buzzin’ activity! 🙂
    Thank you for sharing your random photographing! Your random is spectacular! 🙂
    But with the Head Gardner’s loving hard work, I imagine anywhere you point is a great photo waiting to happen! 🙂
    HUGS!!! and how nice for a night of dining out! 🙂

  2. Your camera pointing was ALMOST random because the garden fairies were nudging your hands and whispering in your ear. That’s my theory, anyway, for these lovely photos.

  3. How wonderful that you still have such colorful blooms! Our season has already begun to turn toward autumn and the flowers are going by, except for the goldenrod.

  4. A spectacular set of photographs Sir!

    Your quality of work is constantly improving it seems to me.

    I was struck by the great contrast between your white Solanum and my mauve ones.

    I think my favourite pic (besides the bees of course) may be the red dahlias and bud, simply beautiful. 🙂 The Puerto Rico dahlia also rates highly.

      1. Mine are pretty much full bloom at present. They would be in the summer too if i gave them enough water, which can be scarce over here then. 😉

      2. Exactly! If they are in flower at the time i have to take strong precautions with my blue rose – i have a large fabric sunblind i wrap around them.

  5. Oh… now you went and did it. It’s been ages since I made anything tempura. I can’t believe how sweet vegetables come out that way!!

  6. If that is what you call “almost at random” photography, then count me in for a photography lesson. Really beautiful flowers and photos. That garden must be even more beautiful.

  7. So lovely
    How are you doing?
    By the way do you know a good plants that can be inside that house? I want to get my mom one
    I am planning my mom’s birthday gift early
    She loves plants she doesn’t have allergies to plants except roses she is allergic to roses. but I’m not too knowledgeable on plants.
