Welcome to August!
After a recent rainfall, I took a short walk and found these colorful (and very wet) blooms. My camera was a point & shoot Canon digital Elph which was hand held.
Please Note: these collages are not clickable to enlarge; the post was composed using the MarsEdit blog program on a MacBook. This program does not provide the same features as the Microsoft Live Writer blog program does for PC blogging. There is no LW software for Mac users (sadly).
It was a brief shower and later that afternoon, the sun broke through as I continued my walk.
Hosta is a popular perennial named in honor of the Austrian botanist, Nicolaus Thomas Host. Its blooms are purple, my favorite color.
Beauty is also found closer to the ground, quite literally by getting down to be (very) up close.
