My Blue Heaven


October 11, 2017

I still don’t do flowers, but I just could not ignore this blue, which happened to be on a flower.

If you get to Schoepfle Garden when the sun is still coming in at a slant, you can see it light up the Wyoming Canna Lilies.

I Don’t Do Flowers, but . . .

I don’t photograph many flowers. But these begonia blossoms really got to me. I think the photos are too Hallmark cardy, but I had fun. Here are five variations on the same shot.

 

 

 

 


Wisteria in Black and White

This wisteria plant blooms every year in front of the Oberlin Public Library. This April 30 was the first time I caught it in flower.

Recent Finds in Selby Gardens 6


January 7, 2017

On New Year’s Eve day I photographed the pendant inflorescence (husband speak for “hanging-down flower”) of a bromeliad that belongs to the genus Vriesea, shown in the lefthand part of this diptych. When I turned around to continue walking in the Selby Garden’s conservatory, I almost ran into its very, very distant relative shown in the righthand part of the diptych.
