iPhoneography: Japanese iris

3 06 2018

Surprise Japanese iris blooms! I saw two purple buds a few days ago and thought maybe it was a straggler from the purple and white ones that finished blooming weeks ago, but when the buds opened this morning, I knew it wasn’t. I honestly don’t remember planting this (which sounds like something I might do!). iPhone 7Plus, Camera+ app in macro mode, Snapseed app border

Mark your calendars for Garden Muse 2016 photography exhibit at Green Spring Gardens!

29 06 2016

I’ll be having my second solo photography exhibit at the Green Spring Gardens Horticulture Center in Alexandria, VA from August 30 to October 23, 2016.

The reception is Sunday, October 9, 1-3 p.m. I’ll have some new images as well as old favorites. All images are for sale and a percentage of sales goes to FROGS (Friends of Green Spring Gardens). During the reception I will have a store set up with lots of inventory: matted prints, framed prints, greeting cards, gallery wrap canvases and photo jewelry. And of course, there will be ample food and beverages! The Horticulture Center is open Monday-Saturday, 9-4:30 and Sunday, noon-4:30. Green Spring Gardens is located at 4603 Green Spring Road in Alexandria, just off Little River Turnpike. There is ample free parking and entrance is free as well. The show will be up for two months, so you have plenty of time to see it!
