Today's Flowers: Grace Garden in early June
The heat has started to fry the flowers and the little rain we've had isn't enough to keep up with the need. Therefore, this week I'm looking back to early June at Grace Garden in downtown Durham, NC.
The light wasn't very good when I took these shots so I didn't use them in June since I had so many other flower shots to choose from.
I like the color of the lilies in the shot above. Those lilies are also in the first shot with roses beside and across from them.
I always enjoy this small garden when I have to work in Durham.
The roses above are one of my favorite colors for roses. I like the way the red roses below contrast with the green but I prefer the peach ones with yellow highlights.
The pansies below are probably all gone with the searing heat because pansies prefer cooler weather.
The impatiens below are probably not handling the heat well either. I'll be curious what I see the next time I work in Durham.
I think most of the low flowers below are pansies and the tall ones in flower may be lavender. I see iris that isn't in bloom yet and there is no telling how they did unless they bloomed pretty fast since it was unremitting heat after I took these shots through to the present.
