June Flowers to remember better weather

July 29, 2012

I took a few photos of June flowers around my yard and intended on posting them at the time.  As is often the case I just never got around to it.  Well, better late than never are 5 June flower photos from around my yard in Fairview Texas.

Fly on White & Purple Day Lily

Lantana – Texas native and is still blooming prolifically

Butterfly vine flower – Don’t know correct name – but the butterflies love the leaves of the vine

Esperanza – another Texas native flower. It loves heat also and is radiant in all it’s glory today in the 104 degree heat


Moss Rose – this flower lies low to the ground but loves the Sun. This is the last of July and it still is healthy.

Southern Colorado Mountain Scene

Pencil Sketch of Southern Colorado mountain side for a change of pace from the normal photos I usually post.


I took this photo Summer 2008 and messed around with it using Paint.Net.  I really like the trees but the sky and the clouds are still too bright.  I suppose I will have to get into layers to dull down the sky without doing likewise to the trees.
