July 10-16: Photo Project Week 28

I continued to get out of the house and find a spot of peace in taking pictures in spite of the busyness of our lives.

My father has grown hundreds of varieties of hostas. He normally cuts the flower stems off the plants, but my neighbour and I both left this beautiful purple flower on.

July 11 – Campanula

July 16 – Rose of Sharon

Hibiscus syriacus. Rose of Sharon. We had one of these bushes in the very first house we owned. I cannot remember if it was double flower like this one. I saw this one as my husband and I were walking to our local bakery for our Saturday bakery run. It’s beautiful magenta head was glowing in the
