Gardens on a Monday

Had a few minutes before visiting the Kansas City Young Matron's today so I stopped by Kauffman Gardens. Always something new. Perfect weather.
All these were taken with the Nikon D3 and 24-70mm lens, ASA200, F16, multiple shots sandwiched.

Lots of new flowers and benches in the "greenhouse"... didn't see Crazy the Cat though, hope she's alright.

The roses are already underway... about two weeks early I think.... but I'll leave that guess to the experts.

Lots of Flocks

A banner year for flocks. Sun, heat, lots of moisture all make for happy sun flowers .... not to be confused with sunflowers. These are next to the patio. I used to have just pink and white... but somewhere along the way nature took it's course and a merger occurred... above and below are Merger Flocks.

Alright.... this (above) isn't a flock... but it was pretty so it got photographed. I wanted to do a lot more images but I was starting to melt....

ScarrPendleMound--or, Today's Bike Ride

I try to ride the bike several times a week and generally travel amongst Indian Mound, Pendleton Heights and Scarritt Renaissance neighborhoods... which I have shortened to ScarrPendleMound. Lot's of nicely maintained homes and yards and just enough hills to make for a goodly amount of exercise. Today was much nicer with lower humidity.

Above home glows in the dark....I like how the "Beware of Dog" sign matches the house color.
There is probably an excessive amount of Day Lilies posted here but they are in bloom now.

I like symmetry....

Above and below homes on adjoining lots elegantly planted.

Homes of all sizes live in our hood......

Above the Concourse Fountain with St. Anthony's in the background. Below, an Indian Mound home on Van Brunt Boulevard. Tomorrow... the other half of the ride.

Location Scouting

Was forced to visit one of my favorite places on Monday... Kauffman Gardens..... I have two bridal portraits there next week.... wanted to make sure that things were as they usually are... gorgeous. Something new every year. Enjoy.

I'd post a couple of the bridal portraits next week... but sneaky grooms can't be trusted... and no one sees the dress ahead of time... except me and moms.
