Backyard beauties...

(Kim's Monday Magic, hard light, 80% opacity)

Instead of setting up a still life for this week's Texture Tuesday,
I decided to use some photos I took on Mother's Day at my daughter's house.
She had this pot of Gerbera daisies on her new backyard picnic table 
where we sat to eat our delicious Mother's Day lunch of carne asada tacos.

We had a wonderful afternoon with our whole family,
 enjoying the beautiful weather outside and visiting with one another while the grandkids played in the yard.
This wisteria grows over into my daughter's backyard from the neighbor's yard.

Today the weather turned gray and rainy.
I'm just praying that our youngest daughter's wedding day, just 12 days away, is sunny!

  2. The Gerbera daisies is a wonderful shot. I love the angle that you used in taking the photo. It is nice of the neoghbor to have the wisteria grows over into your daughter's backyard.

  4. Wisteria and Gerbera daisies. Your NW home is a lot like our SC one.

    1. That's wonderful. There's a writer's conference in SC I would like to go to in August, but it's pretty pricey so I'm not sure I'll be able to.

  5. Gorgeous flowers and beautiful photography Elizabeth! I'm not sure how your daughter feels about the wisteria hanging into her backyard but I'd feel so lucky to have it hanging in MY yard. LOL I've always wanted one but not sure where I'd plant it. Hope you're off to a wonderful day!

    1. I don't know much about wisteria or climates needed for it to thrive. All I know is that it's pretty!

  8. The wisteria is a wonderful "gift" from the neighbor! And sweet peas?? I just planted mine last week, hoping that I'll have some this summer before the heat sets in--assuming it does. So far, spring has been cold. Beautiful edits of beautiful flowers, Elizabeth. (Hopefully, the rain will be gone by next week!)
