Daylilies and Rio Dipladenia
The Wine Delight Daylily was transplanted early this season from a clay pot to the courtyard flowerbed. It is thriving beyond expectations! Last year it produced only one bloom from its greenhouse beginnings. The Rio Dipladenia is a colorful hanging basket bouquet of blooms.
The photos are shot with a Tokina 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 AF Pro D Macro on a Nikon D500. This is the first true macro lens I've used for close-ups.
