Morning Glorious – Backlit Flowers

This morning as I drank my coffee, I looked out to see the very first rays of sun hitting one of my yellow dahlias.  I had to go get my camera.   The result is nothing short of Morning Glorious.

    1. Thanks Lea,

      Aside from taking the flower photos, the cat photo was oo good to pass up. He comes almost every morning now and it’s on that bench. Drives my orange boy nuts.

  2. I love it when you see something exceptional in the garden and can capture it on your camera. Kitty has an aura of sunbeams on him, very pretty.

  3. You are doing very well to be up and at’em at sunrise. The flowers all wakening to the sun are pretty glorious indeed. I recently saw a video of a dahlia garden on You Tube. It sure made me want to have a lot of them next year.

    1. Vee,

      Thanks. It’s not hard to understand why early morning and late afternoon are good times to take photographs. I do love dahlias. I hope you get to experiment with them. If you can, go to a dahlia farm around August. It is wonderful to see so many beauties up close.

      Thanks and thanks fr coming by. What is nice is that we are still having such beautiful mornings…..at least until the fall rains start. So far so good.

  4. Beautiful flowers in the sun! The sky is amazing! I’ve been away from home and didn’t participate in Bloomin’ Tuesday this week. I will miss Jean and all the other gardeners. Take care!

  5. Lovely pictures, especially that first one of the clouds. I’m very fond of that cat picture, too! My favorite thing to be back-lit in the sun are the grasses. I just love the way they sparkle.

      Thanks. The orange kitty is very friendly and nice I just wish my orange kitty wouldn’t face off with him/her.
