Good Morning!

Happy Saturday to one and all.

I’ve now started reviewing (and working on) my March, 2014 photos. It’ll be so much fun to see what’s in there: I don’t believe I’ve revisited some of these since I downloaded them, due to busy times. March 1st had us in Yosemite, since Dan had a photo in the Yosemite Renaissance exhibit (as he does again this year). Even when in Yosemite I tend to pull out the macro lens. I just can’t help myself! I’m hoping someone will take one look at this and tell me what tree this is. Surely somebody out there knows …?

A Busy Day & A Goodnight Flower

I had time for a walk, but not much time for anything else aside from my opera rehearsal and teaching. Thus, only this post today.

I don’t know what this flower is. I have posted it on a Flickr Group page called “What Plant is That?” and I’m hoping someone there will identify it. I should, though, go back and take a better “all of it” photo if I really want it identified. Fortunately I know exactly where I found it: there’s a house nearby that has a lovely front yard full of a variety of bulbs. (I’m fairly sure this is a bulb.) For now I’ll just call it by what I see when I look at it with my sometimes crazy eyes.

(I have since learned that this is Chasmanthe.)

Goodnight Flower

I’ve now managed to get through all of February 2014 photos. I have a few things there I’m surprised I’d not worked on yet. I have a few others I worked on and wonder why I bothered! This is why it’s a good idea to wait to dump photos … and perhaps wait to post them as well.

For now … have this goodnight flower. And yes, it’s from last February.

Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho …

… and so opera begins. This means I’ll have a little less time for walks, and certainly won’t get one in today. I will quickly post this photo and head off to figure out which reeds will work for the first rehearsal.

Some camellias grow flower back-to-back. I find them so lovely, but not easy to capture. Here is one of my first tries this year.
