"Fresh as a Daisy" by papatheo "Fresh as a Daisy" by papatheo
It's amazing how the same storm will devastate some and renew others.

Photographed in the evening just after a rainstorm. Urbandale, Iowa.

This is awesome. At first I thought you'd applied a filter to it, but after I looked at it larger, I saw it was just the lighting making for a beautiful shot! Well done! :clap:

:D Thank you very much. It was an incredible evening light shining on the droplets left by the storm but it had devastated many of the garden flowers... the daisies as usual had persevered.

:D I didn't plant flowers this year. We had such a late spring that when it finally warmed up enough, I decided I didn't feel like it. :giggle:

:nod: We have Irises that come in every year. This photo was taken at my sister's house near Des Moines... she has a professional gardener do the planning and planting and she does the weeding and watering [I think].

I had a few daffodils that came up. I also have some hydrangea and butterfly bushes, but no blooms from them. Oh, and the rose bushes that finally started blooming. :D

:nod: Butterfly bushes are awesome... we also have some GORGEOUS lilies... but the deer tend to eat the blossoms before they are fully open.

My butterfly bushes haven't bloomed yet this year. They had a some damage from the frost this past winter...we had such a late spring. Even my rose bushes had some damage. How nice you get deer where you live, but that's too bad that they eat your flowers.
