Ruby has been upset this year because the weather has been bad for her flowers. She spent our second-last visit alternately complaining that her flowers all looked “drug out”, and sighing over the fact that she has too many tomatoes left to “put down” (sometimes she says “put up” instead of “put down” – both times she means “preserve, jar, can, or stew”.).
I told her I thought her flowers this year were lovely, and wished that I’d taken some pics. She said, “If you want pictures, you’d better get ’em fast.” So I went back yesterday afternoon, and was delighted to find that the finished macros hardly made her flowers look “drug out” at all. The two pictures in this post are my favourites of the bunch I took, and I plan on getting them printed and framed for her.
You can see the rest of the day’s shots at “Photo-Play”.
