Thematic Photographic - Summer

Every week Carmi at Written, Inc. poses a theme for photographic inspiration. This week's theme is SUMMER.

If it's August, it's time for the Naked Ladies. Amaryllis belladonna sends up a bare stem from the dry ground, and opens its beautiful pale pink flowers.


These flowers are in bloom now in my backyard, on the dry hill above my house. When you see the naked ladies in bloom, you know it's almost time for school to start.

These used to pop up all over our back slope when we lived in the Palisades. Lovely surprises every year.

And I am no fan of summer, so YAY!

Lovely flowers. Right now, sunflowers are exploding near the shed and ... we're eating tomatoes every single day. ;)

They are beautiful. But I'm still not ready for school to start!

They are just so pretty! But after all the rain we've had up here, everything is green and lush. Though my sister who lives much further south says her garden is shrivelled up!

We've lived in our house for 3 years. Every year something new pops up out of the existing flower beds. This is something that was new in our flower bed this year. Talk about surprise when I saw them spring up over night!!! Had no idea they were there or what they were called. Great pics!!! Thanks!!!! :-)
