This is about the best time of year to get some interesting close-up macro shots in the garden. The plants in bloom now simply look interesting up close. It was a beautiful day, so out I went for a quick walk around the garden with my camera.
The bright orange Ligularia has one of the most complex little flower centres.
A spiky Purple Coneflower.
The dark brown centre of a Brown-eyed Susan is hard to photograph, but there's a spiral pattern there in the centre.
The 8 foot tall Cutleaf Coneflower has a neat little cap at the centre of each bloom.
Garlic Chives has a circle of tiny white blooms, forming a neat triangle before they open.
I like the uneven corrupated centre of the Helenium.
Those yellow flowers all look red or orange when viewed from underneath.
And I'll have more to say about this little beastie in a day or two, but the seed head of the Yellow Clematis is quite striking!
