Recently, I was invited to participate in a month-long July photo challenge—SquarePerspectives hosted by BeckyB from her blog The Life of B. The challenge is exactly what it sounds like: Rather than post photos with the usual rectangular cropping, the challenge is to post photos cropped square. So each Wednesday in July, I will be presenting a series of square photos from my own yard, which nowadays is the farthest I usually go. Hence the title, One Square Yard.
Even in my mostly green and wooded yard, there are a few flowers to brighten the gardens. While they bloom, here they are in their square glory.

Great compositions. It looks as if your cat is growing a beard – Bluebeard the Cat!
Thanks so much!
Beautiful. I remember your porcelain cat from earlier in the year. What a fun little friend to keep in your yard.
Nicely composed, Laurie. I love the raindrops!
More good compositions
Beautiful, especially the saturated color of that lily!
Love the kitty!
Beautiful flowers and images Laurie, your cat looks very comfy too 💜
A good selection of flowers.
I also really like that cat! Nice theme too of squares.
Thanks! A fun theme.
Beautiful shots and I love the cat photo!🙂
Clever title! Awesome shots!
I think the square is a great shape for flowers …they look lovely!
Thanks so much!
Your garden looks like mine – beautiful. Are you seeing as many bees buzzing around the hosta? I’m not, and it concerns me.
Thanks, Judy! I haven’t noticed them in the hosta, but they are drawn to the bee balm. Commented on it yesterday afternoon as they buzzed around.
I wish my cats would sit between the plants and stay still. They (and Orchid the lurcher) think I plant things to make comfy beds for them to laze on in the sun then wriggle to get comfy! Lovely photos again Laurie. I love green but a splash of colour does add contrast and improve it.
I love splashes of other colors besides green. And in my shady garden, that’s about all it get. 😉
and I love all the sculpture in your garden too
A colorful, restful show of flowers and greenery, Laurie, and I love the cat statue!
The blue glass ball looks like an alternative Saturn and makes a great pairing with the daylily. Hostas are wonderful flowers with the tiers of tiny lilies, but my favourite this week is the cat. I can’t decide its perspective – it’s too expectant to be sunbathing, but too sleepy to be in stalking mode.
A guard cat. 😉
Thank you for a peep into your serene garden, Laurie!
What is that blue globe in the background of the 1st photo?
I love your ceramic kitty in your final capture.
The blue globe is a gazing ball. Looks a bit like Earth, doesn’t it?
love every square!!! that sweet cat . . .
Love the red daylily with the blue glass.
The blue glass was a Mother’s Day present a few years ago.
Love the astilbe and the cat!
