My parents have a few different spaces on their property where they have gardens, but I happened to photograph the garden out by the front stoop where my mom keeps some herbs and flowers.
Really pretty hydrangeas line the whole front of the house. They are a mix of blues, pinks and purples. They’re so vibrant in the spring and summer.
There’s also a few lone marigolds in front of the hydrangeas. They bring the orange and yellow to the table.
Check out this cool bumble bee action shot. I was playing around with the settings on the DSLR. This is in sports mode, so it can catch fast moving objects like this cute little bumble bee.
I took a lot of pictures of these little guys. They were cool subjects to try and photograph since they moved around so much. I love how crisp the pictures came out, so you can see even the detail on their wings.
Last but not least is a couple pictures of little lone johnny jump ups growing in through cracks on the stoop. My mom grows them in a pot on the stoop, so some seeds must and blown around and they found new homes in the between the bricks.
