Tuesday....around the world.

I think there are two different kind of people in the world.

Those who "hate" black flowers

and those who love them! 

One guess which side I'm on. Oh, come you think so?

And a few other colors too but true black flowers fascinate me. The black petunia above has almost no purple in truly is black. I was like a kid in a candy shop when I found it....bought 2 boxes and mixed them with white geraniums and some green.

My little garden fairy, watches over my garden as she has for many years.

I'm happy to say I finally spent a Saturday tending to my garden that was being threatened by every weed known to man. The girls were pretty handy with their garden chores - each one trying to win points as to who was the best garden assistant.

Of course, they both thought they were and I wasn't about to contradict them. Garden help is garden help...rewarded with fudgicles and running through the sprinkler.

These pictures were all taken around 7:00 PM when the sun was it's most delicious. 50mm 1:4 lens - opened wide.
