The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo, and for September that theme is Right Under Your Nose. Check out how others are interpreting this theme right here.
I decided to go with a garden motif for this one. One afternoon in August I was down in the Glebe and was drawn to the gardens around Abbotsford House, a 19th century farmhouse that today serves as a seniors community centre, between a retirement home and a nursing home. Sunflowers are growing in the various flowerbeds.
Other flowerbeds lining the walkways have plenty of colour.
Returning to the sunflowers out front. Across the street is Lansdowne Park.
Bees were busy working on the sunflowers.
These are especially nice flower shots, WilliamReplyDelete
