Floral Distractions

I was up early this morning, working in the garden before it got hot and too allergic for me. I worked, and then showered, to get everything off my skin (that allergy thing), dressed in the clothes I wanted to wear for a meeting later in the day, and got to work in my office. Yes, I know it’s Sunday, but I’ve been away and am going away again and, well, work. You know.

Birds chirped and I looked outside and saw the most amazing backlighting on the daylilies outside my office window. I was at a book talk in the mountains with a wildflower photographer and he talked about backlighting and, well, within moments, there I was, crouched in the garden in my clean clothes, trying to find the right angle. Instead of working.
