This year, there is only one rhododendron
 at the flower show.
 It's the only place I have seen this plant,
 although I have read a lot about it.

Martha Washington Geraniums

The annual spring flower show is on at the college,
 and there are lots of Martha Washington geraniums again.
 Both the leaves and the flowers are different from regular geraniums
and I find them fascinating.
 Since I have been photographing flowers,
 I have been paying a lot more attention to the reproductive organs.

Skywatch Friday

At the horticulture building at the college, I just discovered a large magnolia tree.
 Did you know magnolias have been around since the time of the dinosaurs?
A lot of the plants are labelled, which helps me learn what I am capturing.

I wandered around the horticulture building at the college, and found these tiny irises blooming.

Watery Wednesday

Lady's mantle is one of the best plants
 for catching droplets of water on its leaves.
 I haven't looked up its herbal properties.

Forsythia Buds

The record-breaking temperatures last week have everything growing earlier than usual, including my forsythia bush.
 Now the cold temperatures have put everything into a holding pattern.

Peony Sprout


I found violets blooming in the grass,
 all covered with raindrops.

 They are such tiny flowers...

Today's Flowers

I think this is a maple tree, but it is blooming before coming out in leaf.

Misty Mornings

We have been having some foggy mornings,
 so I have been taking a lot of photos of them.
 I love the way the trees loom
 out of the mist.

Friday's Fences

It's been two weeks since I was capturing fences - there was snow covering the ground then.
To see more fences from around the world, visit Jan and Jer.


I love the way the cattail fluff forms
 halos in the morning sun.

 in the dawn's golden light.
