September Bloom Day Closeups

I have not been doing much in the way of flower porn photography for a good long while. Monet and I stepped back for the bigger picture of the gardens. Closeups don't work well with my vibration. There was good light when I got home and it was Bloom Day. I thought I would put my vibration to a test. I did very well. Better than expected. It was probably the quality of the light.

The result is a very full post of flower closeups. This is some of what is blooming in the Tall Flower Meadows high on the low spot of a North Carolina mountain top in the middle of September.

You have a nice selection of native plants. Jewelweed is one I don't have (yet). Once we get the invasive plants cleared from our creek area I'll be adding this beauty. Happy bloom day.

I'm loving your garden a lot! Here in New Zealand, spring is trying to sow up and I'm excited to see what comes up!

I am glad you had a happy bloom day Christopher. I like your close ups. I have one of those white asters that arrived unannounced. It has been here for years now. I don't know which one it is. I would love to find out which one. It seems more airy that the ones you have shown. They look like stars in the twilight. Love elephants foot but in my garden it can get weedy.It grows where nothing else wants to grow.
