P/P Photoweek: Garden Phlox (VIII.8.2005)

garden phlox

Garden Phlox . . .
(Phlox paniculata)  Also known as Fall Phlox (from the Greek, flame >>>
phlegein = to burn)
because it flowers relatively late in the summer. This is what I call
a skyview photo, made from below looking up. (Like a squirrel or rabbit or robin might see
the plant canopy above them . . .) This angle reveals a wonderful world of form
& structure that we normally overlook. For example, notice here the beautiful funnel
form leading up the flat 5-petal flower tops. Click on the thumbnail below
