This morning after feeding the dogs I noticed my Epi had bloomed...and the blooms were still open. Maybe it was because the night was so cool...think the lows were in the low to mid 50's. Camera in hand I went out and started taking photos. I couldn't get enough .... I love photographing this beauty.
To be able to capture this great bloom in daylight was a treat.
The lighting was super for capturing these blooms.
For as gorgeous as the blooms are, the plant itself is sad looking and oddly shaped. It needs a good trim and other years I trimmed it just before briniging it in for the winter, which should be about now. But I couldn't trim off flower buds before they opened. So now that it has bloomed it will be trimmed and retired for the winter. I have one person, Lola, who would like a piece of the plant, anyone else?
This month the Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest theme is 'Fill the Frame' I thought I would try my hand at it again. I have two photos to argue with myself about which is the best choice.
Back of two or---
inside of one..........
I think I am going for the back of two. My entry is this one (see larger one above) or click on any photo for a larger view.
