Today, I previewed a bunch of townhouses in Northern Virginia in the 90+ degree heat. And for part of the time, I was just dragging myself from one property to the next. But it wasn't so hot that I didn't stop to notice some really beautiful landscaping in some of these communities. Here are a few of the June flowers that caught my eye:
These yellow lilies were pretty spectacular. How can they look so calm and cool on such and incredibly hot and himid day!
And then there were these bright orange lilies that seem to grow completely wild for the first couple of weeks in June.
And I took this shot through a fence.
Oh, and I took them all with my I-Phone. Amazing what it can do.
Still, it's time to get out my grown up camera and start to take some serious shots!
One of the hints that a condo or townhouse complex is pretty well kept is, after all, the way the place is landscaped. And I took these three shots of common ground for some of the area's most popular townhouse projects.
Some of the houses were pretty, too.
