I love what the late day sun does to the garden.

The pine tree and lilac bushes recede into the deep green background,

and the colors of the flowers take on a special radiance.

The pink of the columbine becomes rich and golden-hued,

while the green leaves of the red twig dogwood
and the white allium create a fresh pattern.

What I couldn't capture on film, though,
was the whirling motes of cottonwood seeds
that swirled across the lawn, highlighted by the sun.

And now the columbine needs dusting.
