Last Tigers of Summer
There were two Tiger Lily blossoms left in the garden. It had been a good season but unfortunately all of the blooming happened while the rains were here so I could not work with the blossoms. What to do?
Wind and clouds today were not much better, but I found a quiet location and tried to set up a little floating sculpture. The Phlox blossoms were impossible to keep stuck together for very long.. they all wanted to drift away from each other. For a very brief moment there was a rainbow halo in the clouds but it was not possible to capture it with the flowers... so the Tigers of summer are finally celebrated and let go... what a lovely way to bid farewell.
Up next: snowball in August.
