Goodnight Flower

As you can see, this is from a while ago. It’s fun to find these little surprises in older folders.

Is it really “red-orange”? I just couldn’t call it red, as it isn’t your typical red rose, and I do see a bit of an orange tint. Maybe you’ll see it differently. (This is why it’s so handy when I know the actual name: I prefer calling them by their names when possible.)

Happy Wednesday

It is rather dark outside and I hear that north of us the weather is rather wild. The wind appears to be starting up (my wind chimes are chiming) and I suspect that I’ll be slogging through rain when I leave for symphony tonight. For now, though, I’m sitting inside, enjoying some great music, looking at photos, and, on occasion, doing a bit more cleaning around the house. After posting this it’s off to the studio to practice and teach.

I thought this cheerful flower might brighten up the darkness (although in all honesty I love dark days like this). If you look closely you might see the friend … but it’s rather tiny! The images I post here are not meant to be seen large. As my husband says, “They look great larger and prints are always for sale!

Goodnight Flower

This is some sort of Polygala, and I was guessing myrtifolia until I started looking online and saw one called Polygala x dalmaisiana that also looks like this. Maybe a reader can help me. In any case, it is surely a Polygala. A common name is sweet pea bush. No matter the name, I find it quite lovely.

Monday Morning Green

Here — some Monday morning green for you. I love finding these green treasures: abstract for the most part, but just a bit recognizable. Green is a color that makes me feel alive.

As you can see, this is from 2015. Redoing my one Lightroom catalog and setting up one per year has sure been fun, as I go through images, many of which bring back fun memories.
