Bright Blue Globes

Bright Blue - Self-Portrait

A visit to the local garden center this weekend provided me with a two hour photo shoot. I pretty much emptied my wallet to do some replacement purchasing for foundation plantings for my home – six bushes and a European Filbert Tree that I was told was native to Wisconsin. (Go figure!) It looks like a giant corkscrew.  So, as a result of my contribution to their economy, I felt it only right and proper that I get some photo subjects out of the deal.

The colors were wonderful wherever I looked. And after I became completely color blinded by at least a thousand kinds of flowers, I went over to the flower pots. I wasn’t disappointed there, either.

Even got a self-portrait in this photo, but you have to look carefully – or blow the photo to poster size. 🙂

    I just love the colors and the blue orbs with reflections on them—including your tiny self-portrait. I’d empty my wallet, too, at the garden center! Nice capture! 🙂

    Reminds me of the Blue Man Group:) Gotta get the kids to Chicago this summer!

    I see you, but where’s your faithful Photo Sherpa? Nice colors and shapes.

    Ron – Thanks.

    amelia – love those reflections, too

    susan – hey, Blue men. They are cool, aren’t they!
