Plants and Flowers

Black Eyed Susan and backpack – Before heading up the ‘Farm Track Trail’ and into ‘Shelob’s Lair’ I stopped to fill up with cool creek water and a dunk in Piney Creek. It was cold but very refreshing.

March Hibiscus – we moved our hibiscus plants inside for the winter and they have rewarded us by flowering every now and then.

Bedroom Plants – Same old story, I liked the light.

The soft light on a dull rainy day on these flowers Ginger picked and placed on the kitchen table caught my eye, and prompted a discovery. One-minute read, +1

Ginger recently undertook a project to make a vessel a day for 100 days. Most days a new vessel of some sort would appear on my desk. The vases came with flowers, and the pots came with small plants. One-minute read, 2 pictures

Stamen – Hibiscus plant in the back yard. I was chatting with Ginger when I noticed the contrast between the light on the stamen of this flower and the darkness of the greenery behind it.

Flowering meadow – Day Two, Hercules Glades, Pees Hollow Trail.

When I noticed the sunlight dappling the flower I decided to take the picture, no matter how twee hibiscus flower pictures are. Thinking about it; for a better shot I should have got the sunlight in the background behind the stamen.
