BackYard Flowers…Daisy

Here is a look at another variety of flowers that I grew in my backyard this year with the intention of using for photography, and this time it’s the Daisy, a very common yet beautiful perennial that is easy to grow and just as easy to photograph.

I am definitely not the best of gardeners and have killed my share of blooming plants in my garden, but this is one that not even I can destroy, I think these little beauties will be here long after the apocalypses along with the cockroaches !!

These lovely perennials have a structure very close to that of the coneflower but of a different color, and because of that color difference I used coneflowers and bee-balm as a background color for the daisies. With the white petals of the daisy set against the vivid colors of the perennials I was able to come up with a very cool color contrast. I planted these just for that reason and for once things turned out like I planned, that usually doesn’t happen very often lol !!

So I hope you enjoy me images and click on the image for best viewing ,thanks for stopping by !!

“Madison Indiana Flowers”

Well with the heat wave finally broken and it doesn’t send me into a heat stroke just to travel out into my back yard I thought I might share some work from right outside my backdoor. I tried growing flowers with the express purpose of photographing them and the butterflies that they might attract, but this year that kinda flew by the wayside, I don’t think I could have watered then enough to keep them looking good so I just gave up and will have to work with what is left….Coneflowers !!

These little beauties seemed to be drought resistant and looked great all thru the heatwave, I shared some in an earlier post that looked great and this time I am going to share one of a different color, Yellow !!

For years I have only photographed the striking purple coneflowers but this year I planted the red, white and yellow varieties and the yellows really took off. This flower variety has always been one of my favorites to photograph not only because of hardiness but also ease in shooting them from different positions.

So I was able to get some nice subjects photographed and came up with some nice work..this is one of my favorites.

So if you get a chance and need a easy and beautiful subject to work try out the many different varieties of the coneflower, thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!
