A couple of you very observant readers noticed that my marigold image appeared to be upside down, and commented on the wee insect on the edge of the petals (that I hadn’t noticed).
Here is the same shot, turn over and cropped. I do occasionally hold my camera off and “shoot from the hip” which is how I may have taken this shot without getting too close to the bee. So, it probably was upside down.
The same day that I took this image I also took some shots of my chrysanthemums, which I had also forgotten about. Gesh! It’s a good thing I took pictures.
I love the colors in these petals. I didn’t even see any like this this year. I ended up with plain yellow ones and lavender ones with yellow centers. I planted them in the flower bed the day after I brought them home, so I hope they come back next year. They were rather root-bound, so I don’t know. I haven’t had much luck recently.
Our granddaughter and her baby came out today so we spent a lot of time with them. I was really nice outside after lunch. Cloudy, but the temperature was perfect.
Made Old Settler’s Beans for lunch using a recipe my cousin gave me. Very good. That recipe is a keeper. Then for dinner I made quiche with zucchini. Yum! I hadn’t made quiche in quite some time, but we all really enjoy it. I make mine without crust, so it goes together quickly.
