This rose is alway changing from day to day.
First it starts out dark pink on the edges of the petals, and as the rose ages, the color lightens into to a muted orange, and finally it fades to very light colors throughout.

Bird of paradise in the yard. Taken a week or so ago. Beautiful flower, with busy background.
Darkened the background and used the Topaz Simplify filter to try to emulate a painted image.

It was very windy here, so photographing the dogwoods was a bit of a challenge.
Patience and a break in the wind allowed me to take this image.

It was lunch time at Yosemite, so we picked up a sandwich at the store and drove to the parking lot beyond the Lodge,
We stayed in the warm car and enjoyed lunch and the view.
Later, we took a walk behind some of the cabins to veiw the mountains. The dogwoods along the path leading behind the cabins were wonderful.

Out in the yard Wednesday around noon.
Poppy in full bloom with many buds and flowers.
It is so fun to watch these flowers grown and bloom, and blossom. So sad that they only last about 3 days.
