Garden journal entry


September 02, 2007. A double-take in the garden - while strolling through the back yard this morning, I spotted a bright white flower on the Diabolo ninebark. Now, that shrub indeed sports white blooms - but they're long done (see the fruit clusters in the photo?) and don't look anything like this. Of course it was merely a serendipitous garden arrangement: a nearby gaura had sent one of its whispy flowering stalks to intermingle with the ninebark. And see there: the flower that would have been easy to miss in the tangle of the late-summer garden becomes brilliant when it's offset by the deep purple foliage of Diabolo!
By the way, it was photographically challenging to capture this one - given the choice between over-exposing the gaura and underexposing the ninebark, I chose the latter...
