Web Photos I like

 I don't get a chance to use compositions of Hemerocallis very often because I design city gardens that cannot accommodate the spread that several of these plants will create.  But I do like the effect they contribute to a perennial garden. Here is a long-view photo of such a garden. From this perspective, one does not see the flowers up close. It is the overall effect that is striking. The garden is planted with mostly Hemerocallis with some Echinacea scattered here and there for color punctuation. What I especially like about this picture is the angle from which it was shot. The perspective draws us deep into the garden and helps to showcase the color combinations. This image is a view of the gardens at in Peterborough, Ontario.
