The end. Whew! Seeing small things part 5.
The tiny flowers of the Nandina domestica, commonly called heavenly bamboo.
A few remaining flowers on the crape myrtle Lagerstroemia indica, 'Red Rocket'.
Immature fruit of the Nandina domestica
The back of a Hydrangea paniculata, 'Quick Fire'. This was a huge disappointment because the color is not anywhere close to the picture on the label which was a bright red. In fact our H. paniculata 'grandiflora' has better color. The panicles or corymbs on the 'Quick Fire' also droops giving it a "needs water" look, so that's why you see the back of the panicle rather than the face.
An austere photo of next years Rhododendron flower. I thought the delineation of the petal covering essentially the sepals caused by the orange outlining was interesting...in an understated zen-like way.
Pretty gaudy Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Fanfare' but we keep it around because the bees like it so much. The inch worm seems to like it too.
