I’m likin’ this lichen!

20 05 2018

Rain is good for the garden. Too many days of rain is not good for me (or my beautiful Bearded irises, which I was fortunate to photograph in all their glory before the wet mess came). We’ve had about a week of solid rain. It let up some today and I saw a glimpse of the sun very briefly. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for sunny and no rain (yay!). I was at a Michael’s Craft Store and in the parking lot next to the car are several trees that are coated with various colors of lichen and moss. It’s actually quite beautiful and only in our rainforest-like weather could this occur. I went a little nuts with my iPhone using the Camera+ app in macro mode late this afternoon. I added the grunge borders in the Snapseed app. I plan on going back with my Nikon D850 to get some more images tomorrow.

iPhoneography: Spring starflowers

30 04 2018

These star-shaped, pale blue flowers with grass-like foliage are Spring starflowers (Ipheion uniflorum). This perennial is grown from bulbs and blooms in mid-spring for 3-5 weeks. Originating from Argentina and Uruguay, this plant naturalizes very swiftly, spreading by self-seeding and from bulb offsets. Often used in rock gardens and woodland gardens, they grow just 4-5 inches tall, and are perennials in Zones 6 to 7 (with mulching to protect from frost) and in Zones 8 to 9 without mulching. They can be grown in full sun to part shade, require medium watering, are low maintenance, and tolerate a wide range of soil types.

This image was captured with my iPhone 7 Plus with the Camera+ app in macro mode. Grunge border was added in the Snapseed app.
