I was moved to photograph them again, this time with my camera and not the phone. Once again, I just leaned out the second floor window and looked down.
You can barely distinguish between the volunteers and the planted pot, which is just to the right of the bird bath, on this side of the heron.
That ↑ was as close as I could get with my normal lens zoomed out to 105mm. Later, I put the longer lens on and zoomed it to its ↓ maximum 200mm.
I do have an even longer lens, but I think this was close enough. In point of fact, I think the first photo was the better one as it showed more, although still not all, of these valiant flowers.
I took one more photo, just shifting slightly from the one above.
We can't seem to stop marvelling at these wild petunias. Hopefully, they will continue to thrive for another month as autumn begins to approach.
