Today is a beautiful hot Summers day.  The weather man appeared to have got it right as I nipped out with my camera at around 7.30am.  A clear blue sky with the sillouette of the Thalictrum Elin.

The trouble with high sun is that it somehow bleaches the colours of the plants and makes them tricky to photograph.  Earlier in the morning however I was able to capture the view before the sun moved onto them.P8235270.JPG

Grasses look wonderful in the sunlight but are rather difficult to picture clearly.  This is Pheasant Tail grass and its shadow this morning.

The colours of Verbena bonariensis and Joe pye weed are blending well and drifting throughout each of the four beds.P8235282.JPG

Closer up the Joe pye weed is most attractive
