Dad has been practicing with the camera.

The bluey green hosta is called "June"(no sarcastic comments please).

Dads favourite place on a summers day

Hemerocallis

Hemerocallis, a day lily, 24hours in flower then it dies.

Hope you enjoyed Dads' attempt at photography!

What a beautiful garden! I hate to mention that the last picture seems a teensy bit out of focus, but never mind, he can have another shot at it next year!

It's understandable that a great gardener like your dad wants to capture the flowers on camera. Good for him! I'm sending him a virtual hug (( ))
and one for you too (( ))

So very lovely. Tell your dad.

We have England weather again today. Grey. Rain. At least it's warm though.
