VEES NOTE CARD PARTY

For my first ever blog party I have chosen a set of four similar images, close-ups of daylilies from my lakefront garden, taken with my camera phone one hot sunny day last year.  I can picture them as coasters as well as note paper and actually used some in a calendar last year!

Nothing common about the vibrant colour of this "common" orange daylily...


I like something about the muted colour of this image...


 A little dew always improves a flower shot, n'est pas?


Shows more pink here than it appears in the garden, where it is purple. I swear.

  1. These are really stunning, and perfect for note cards, or coasters, as you've mentioned. What kind of camera do you have?

    1. Lorrie, these were actually taken with the camera on my Windows Phone. Mobile photography makes it so conventient to snap a shot on the go that I don't use my regular camera nearly as much as I used to. Thanks for visiting.

  2. Beautiful photography! I've never thought that there was anything common about the lowly ditch lily either, which is why they are featured prominently in my front garden. Thank you for participating!

  4. Gorgeous. There is nothing common about the lily ... of any kind. Mother Nature knows what she is doing! Wonderful selections for Vee's party.

    1. I have to admit I was surprised by the detail my phone camera was able to pick up! I like it better than my 'camera' camera as well.
