Picture This #267 ~ Summer Showcase

What a wonderful theme to end the summer, A Summer Showcase. Thanks Debby for choosing this theme for the week. Congratulations to Baz for his waterfall, chosen as this week's banner.

This gladiola is featured in my garden. I love the color.

I photographed this hydrangea blooming in progress.

  1. Exquisite flowers and wonderful boat.

  2. Hi Robert!! Good to see you taking part this week. Three excellent shots for Debby's theme. Very good close-up of the gladiolus in the first shot. I really do like the colour of the hydrangea. Time to take that boat out one more time before the autumn storms set in!!

    1. Thanks, Mitch. I liked photographing that hydrangea in transistion. Boats come out of the water by October unless there's a hurricane. We're crossing our fingers we don't have any.

  3. Hi Robert! Very nice shots of your beautiful flowers... Love that of the blooming hydrangea...

  4. That is such a pretty gladiola. I love the way it is lifting it's face to the sun. Nice shot, Robert!

    The hydrangea is one of my favorite shrubs. Lovely color!

    Great shot of the boat and village!
