SOOC - Flowers Again!

I never tire of photographing flowers - this week has been a busy one, and I didn't get time to experiment much with macro shots and other tricks. I did talk a walk around my front yard to photograph these lovely flowers.  I am patiently anxiously waiting for the the day lilies to bloom...they seem a little later this year.  But, the Asiatic lilies have been blooming their heads off this week!






And, the Dahlia has grown so tall, it is almost as tall as my Harry Lauder Walkingstick!




The Echinacea is one of my very favorite flowers - the first one has bloomed.  I have a few others that are just in the bud stage.


I hope you haven't tired of walking around my flower garden!



I am linking this post to Floral Friday Fotos and SOOC.

Your shots are lovely. We have a lot of the same flowers in our yard.

My lilies are blooming profusely but don't seem to be lasting long before they are a pile of petals on the mulch.

Marvellous series of shots, Linda! Have had a very busy week with the new job, so I am visiting late...
