Late September Rose Blooms
I’ve decided to start posting some of my garden photos here also, instead of just on my separate garden blog. This week I got a new Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 lens for my Olympus Pen EPL3 camera. I’ve been having a lot of fun with this little camera, even though I don’t use all the capabilities yet. I got the 20mm lens mostly for taking indoor low light photos, but I figured I’d go waddle around in the garden briefly this morning with it, too.
Over the last couple years I’ve tried a lot of “reblooming” bearded irises. Three particular ones consistently rebloom for me; Total Recall, Breakers and Rosalie Figge. These are wonderful irises, you can shove them in anywhere as long as they have good enough drainage and sun! If I was crazier, I’d go guerrilla planting them in neighbors’ yards.
