This image is one from yesterday morning’s walk. As I was shooting these gorgeous flowers, which included some lovely variegated leaves (that I’ve yet to shoot in a way I really like), another walker stopped and chatted. Turns out she, too, is a photographer. So here’s a shoutout to Susan, who has her Musin’ Wish Susan website. Thanks for stopping to chat!
Alstroemeria Detail, 5.25.18
Just because …
Yellow Calendula, 5.21.18
As I wait for the temperature outside to warm up a wee bit (yes, I’m wimpy: it IS, after all, over 40°!) I thought I’d wish you all a happy Monday. I realize that, for many, it’s a back to work day, but I hope it can still be happy. Maybe some of you are even happier getting back to work …? I wonder.
I think I’ve identified this correctly as Coleonema, and it might be Coleonema pulchellum , also known as “Pink Breath of Heaven”.
If you see that a borage flower has fallen on to a leaf you sort of have to go inside and get your camera.
Borage Flower on a Leaf, 10.9.20
Since I have a bit of time … here is a photo I shot mostly to see how well I could focus. Then I wondered what would happen if I cropped the image. So you see the original and then a cropped version and finally a real close-up of Mr. Ant. I normally don’t share images of a higher quality (you can buy a print for that!), but in this case I am, since I want to show things in better detail.
Not bad for a hand held image!
I always post a goodnight flower (and, in fact, last night’s was numbered 1097 so I’ve obviously done this for quite some time!), but how about one for this afternoon? Just because.
White & Pink Fuchsia (I), 12.9.16
Water Drops on a Succulent, 8.16.17
This little thing is frequently called a 4 o’clock flower. It was blooming at 10:45 AM. I’m just not sure what to think. Perhaps it’s just residing in a different time zone?
