The Garden Flower Pictures

Photographing flowers in a garden has always been very enjoyable to me. I do not have a large garden myself, but I love to photograph pictures in one garden up in the San Bernardino Mountains. Late June is a time of year when the flowers are blooming up in the San Bernardino Mountains.

I have always felt that stargazer lilies were very celestial, and photographing these is always a pleasure.

There is something cheerful and refreshing about gazing upon a sunflower. Also, I love to eat sunflower seeds, so this is truly a flower that provides sustenance.

Looking at pictures of purple and pink lilies in the garden may inspire some new art projects.

There are a variety of vibrant flowers to look at in the garden ranging from bell shaped ones to pumpkin blossoms.

White and red roses are enjoyable to look at when planted in a garden, which is cheaper than buying a dozen at the flower shop. If you really appreciate a beautiful rose, a photograph or two will last longer than the real McCoy.

Hello SweetiePie. Some lovely flowers in your garden. By the way, the light purple bell shaped flowers are called Foxglove, as is the 3rd picture from the top (the caption is misnamed). Nice work.

Hi Timorous,

Thank you for telling me the name of the bell shaped flowers :). This is my mom's garden, so I have to admit I am not as well versed in all the varieties of flowers.

Hi sVioletSun,

I truly appreciate your comments, and I am glad you liked the closeup pictures :).

The bell shaped flowers look like foxglove, but I can't be sure though, maybe there's a foxglove lookalike.

Anyway, lovely hub! I'd love to have my own garden with such beautiful and colorful blooms. :)

Thanks, oldiesmusic. I think you are right about the foxglove. This is my mom's garden, and wish I could have a big one, too.
