In bloom at the Moorings community gardens
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge has a series focusing on songs. This week the theme is It’s a Small World.
“It’s a small world after all”
“There is just one moon…
…And one golden sun”
“And a smile means friendship for everyone.”
I know that sunflowers turn themselves to face the sun, but it appears black eyed susans do the same. I can’t think of any reason for this entire mass to be bending in the direction of the sun. It wasn’t windy and there were no signs of someone or something running over them!
The foliage that surrounds our West Pond has grown prodigiously this year, and makes the area seem more “wild” and natural. Here are two of the flowers that grow alongside the pond.
Head over to Cee’s FOTD 8/5/21 for a variety of beautiful blooms!
Cee ends her color series for her Fun Foto Challenge this week, with the color blue.

Cee’s FOTD 8/2/21
I took these photos around the Moorings campus today as I was taking a walk.
Cee has another beautiful hydrangea photo in her FOTD 7/31/21!
For Becky’s penultimate day of trees squared, I decided I’d go with her theme somewhat. Here are some winter trees, enhanced!
One of the most wonderful features of the Moorings campus is the number and variety of trees! I am not a fan of winter in general, but I am awed by the complexity of their interwoven branches, which are best seen when they have no leaves to cover them.
I love playing with SnapSeed on my cellphone, so I enhanced (and squared) some of the shots!
This next set of comparisons was actually taken in early May – I just like the effect! And these are not squared but see below.
Here is the altered image squared:
I don’t know why this enhanced picture came out so blurry!
Trees in the background in this pair:
I decided to include this photo taken in February – it’s not enhanced/altered, I just like it!
A gallery of sunflowers from the Moorings community gardens!
There are also lovely patches of black eyed susans around campus that brighten my day during my walks.
Another community garden flower: a bright yellow zinnia.
