I love the morning light behind the flowers, especially with a hint of rain on them. The pictures here are of Echinacea and Crocosmia, early in the morning this week. Rain has been scarce this summer and the pond is down several feet. I have to water the gardens almost every day to keep everything healthy and flowering. The days are becoming shorter already and the insects serenade in the evening. Geese seem to reflect on the changing day length and sign a chorus of confusion flying back and forth in the sky. Ah, but the summer is lovely.
