My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.
If anyone knows the name of this wildflower (next 2 pictures b elow) please let me know. I tried to find it in my flower books.

I began with a boring photo of some white iris flowers. Split it into muliple Iris and added a background to create this composite image. Adjustment layers, masks and blending modes in Photoshop refined the image.
The breezes from the Hudson help to cool keep it cool in the summer. We spent some time seated in the shade of an enormous Linden tree. The plants in the rock garden are randomly arranged in square tubs of varying sizes.
