One beautiful afternoon in February (mid-summer in South Africa), the whole family was visiting here at our home. My younger daughter-in-law, Amanda asked if she could photograph the garden with my Canon. She loves to play around with the different features on the camera and I'm always amazed and pleased with the beautiful images she comes up with.
My post today is about this day and a selection of her takes on my garden.
In the foreground of this photo, is the Pride of India (Lagerstromia indica), not indigenous, as can be ascertained from the name. Here it was at the height of its glory
Lily spp - also not the indigenous kind but it grows so prolifically in the Free State providing colour during the whole summer. Amanda used the macro feature for this shot
A candid capture of a happy little lad watering his Gran's garden!
Amanda experimented with various shutter speeds for the photos of the fountain above and below
