Fall Patterns in The Yard

Day Lilies; They were here when we moved in.

100mm, f/13, 1/100, 5000 ISO [Day 175/366]

Rhododendron leaf; The original plant died, and we replaced it with the same. This one is healthy, really it is.

100mm, f/9.0, 1/100, 500 ISO [Day 177/366]

Lupine leaf; I planted this one this past spring. While technically still alive, it looks to have some kind of mildew/fungus/mold thing going on with its leaves.

100mm, f/9.0, 1/250, 2000 ISO [Day 179/366]

A rose-cutting; waiting to be planted in the yard. Three of these were left in our yard by a well-meaning neighbor. I'm pretty sure I can kill them off next year. My impression is that roses need special attention, which they won't be getting from me.

100mm, f/14, 1/100, 2000 ISO [Day 180/366]

100mm, f/11, 1/100, 2000 ISO [Day 180/366]

Honey Locust tree; we replaced a 70+ year-old rotten Black Locust tree with this sapling last summer. The new tree has adjusted well.

100mm, f/11, 1/125, 800 ISO [Day 182/366]

Forget-me-Not leaf; a welcome gift from a departing co-worker that luckily appears to be thriving in its new home.

  1. YAY! I'm so glad your forget me not is thriving!

  2. Love the red-banded... leaf hopper and the daylillies. These macros were all fun to look at :)
