Summer Flowers – Bright new photography

Summer flowers are one of the joys of this season. My list of summer pleasures is a long one. Here, in today’s post, I want to share a few recent photographs of summer flowers.

My friend offered me a ride back to her house. We were planning an evening of barbeque’d food and good friends. On the way, she stopped into this greenhouse in Eddington, ME – Hutchings Greenhouse – to see if they had more gerber daisies. Of course I had my camera and couldn’t stop shooting. The colors of the flowers, with the greenhouses in rows, and the bright nursery carts, I shot some joyous summer blooms.

I wanted to share these for a few reasons:

  • Summer flowers are one of the reasons I love summer
  • I would not have stopped at this green house had I driven myself to their house. So, accepting her kind offer of a ride, was a benefit for a few reasons.
  • If I had not had my camera with me, I could not have made these images. I had actually considered leaving it at home. I had a lot of other stuff to carry and don’t often use it when I go there. This time I did and it paid off.
  • I want to encourage you to stop into your local greenhouse. It’s easy to pick up flowers for summer at the big box parking lot, but places like this won’t be around if Lowe’s and Home Depot keep getting all the business.
