  1. If that is how photos turn out with evening light then I need to get out there. Lovely.Jenny

    Thanks! I was surprised at how well they turned out! I think the key was taking close-ups instead of wide shots.

    Lori,Welcome to Austin gardening. How does it compare trying to grow in our heat versus growing in the cold? I like to read your blog and I LOVE the name. I’m adding you to my bloglist. Keep cool,Robin at Getting Grounded

    Lori – your evening light photos are really lovely. I especially like the agapanthus. Yours look so much better than mine! I’m on the hunt for a new camera — suggestions?

    I agree with Diana, the agapanthus is exquisite. Your coneflowers look great too. Great photography.

    getgrounded – Thanks! I have to say that I prefer the heat, simply because there aren’t very many roses that grow in Wisconsin without insane amounts of coddling. I’m too lazy to dig up things like cannas every fall, so it was silly-thrilling to me when I found out that they’re perennial in Texas!Diana – You wanna know the agapanthus secret? I bought mine in full flower from Home Depot recently. (Which reminded me of Carol’s post on how to get delphiniums to flower– buy them in full flower! Hee-hee!) As for camera advice, I’d really talk to Pam. I have a Nikon Coolpix 4300 and I have to put all of my pictures through sharpening, color, & levels adjustment in Photoshop to get them looking good, and it takes for-ev-er. For a simple point-and-shoot, I thought that MSS’s new camera was pretty cool– her viewscreen is big enough that you can tell whether your pictures are in focus or not.carol janov – Thanks! I love agapanthus. I’m just crossing my fingers and hoping they bloom again next year, unlike the agapanthus I’ve bought and planted in the past. I read recently that they bloom better when their roots are crowded and they were very pot-bound when I bought them, and– anathema!– I left them like that when I put them in the ground. We’ll see what happens. 🙂
