This post will be the last One Square Yard entry, as Becky B’s Square Perspective Theme ends in two days. What fun to frame my photos with a square rather than a rectangle, and to see which shape works best with which picture. Clif has always been an advocate for squaring a photo, so I wasn’t totally unfamiliar with that perspective. Still, keeping an eye out for pictures that would look good squared has been a delightful challenge.
We have a smattering of wild blueberries in the yard. Fun to find a daddy-longlegs resting on some berries.
Another little visitor, this time in the bee balm.
And a spill of needles caught on the edge of a Frances Williams hosta leaf.
Because this is the last week of the Square Theme, here is a bonus picture, a repeat of the gorgeous daylily Flore Pleno. Plenty of flower is right! I didn’t think anyone would mind seeing these beauties twice.

Those berries look good enough to eat!😊
yum blueberries, and how fabulous to have a bonus flower. It has been so wonderful having you join us. Do hope you will be back in October
Excellent square photographs, all so good I couldn’t pick a favourite!
A-w-w-w, thanks, Susan!
Nice squares, Laurie. I love that it is blueberry season…I’ve got to go picking!
One of my favorite berries!
And Maine has LOTS of them! 🙂
I love the square and the beauty of these pics!
I would love to grow some blueberries – yours look fantastic! Your daylily’s colour is just gorgeous.
Thanks so much!
Lovely to see your garden thriving in the heat.
It’s doing well!
Your hosta leaf looks as though it’s made of seersucker — very summery!
Would the berries make a square meal?
All those intense colors. Your square theme works great here, I think.
I’ve enjoyed the beautiful photos and flowers in your one square yard series!🙂
My kind of squares, and I love the header. 🙂 Hope we both get some cooler weather this week because the last three days have been doozies.
Thanks, Judy! Not too bad in Maine for the past couple days. Hot but not unbearable.
Love these square perspective captures. Love the capture of the daddy longlegs in the blue berries!!
Wonderful photos, Laurie. I especially love the Daddy-longlegs hiding in the berries. I especiallly loved that it was a photo and not something that snuck up on me IRL! 😀
Oh, dear! Fortunately, I don’t have an arachnid phobia. One was on my leg this morning as I watered the back garden, and I just brushed it off.
Wow …..Flore Plento is an absolute knockout! And the square suits them all.
Lovely photos (as always!) and I am pleased you took up a challenge and enjoyed it. Sometimes we need a nudge to try something slightly different and give ourselves a boost.
I don’t mind seeing the daylilies any number of times. I am impressed at how unnibbled your hostas are. I’ve been watching a patch on one of my walks this year that looked wonderful when they were cone shaped tubes opening, but has become threadbare.
Frances Williams seems to be slug and snail resistant. Others in my garden aren’t quite as lucky. However, because we had such a dry June, the slugs and snails haven’t been as bad this year. Ditto for the mosquitoes.
So very well done
Wonderful shots Laurie. The first one is such a catch.
Beautiful captures Laurie and so lovely to see you have wild blueberry, they look delicious! 💜 xxx
Thanks, Xenia! They certainly are.
I love the scenes from your gardens, Laurie. And those daylilies are very beautiful!
I love that capture of the little pine needle detail.
Caught my eye, too.
