Northern Blue Flag iris

21 06 2016

I think this is a Northern Blue Flag iris (Iris versicolor); photographed at Green Spring Gardens. I love the jumble of curving and radiating leaves framing this beautiful bloom (the raindrops in the foreground were a visual bonus!).

Goodnight, sweet garden, goodnight…

16 11 2011

Well, sort of…I’ll still post photos of plants that I photograph in the winter months (such as the bulbs I force every year indoors), but alas, my garden has gone dormant and new flower and insect photos will become few and far between. I will be going through my botanical archives in winter to seek new treasures I may have overlooked in my initial culling process, though.

On the subject of gardening, I just began writing a regular monthly column for flowershopnetwork.com. I just completed an article entitled, “Anything but ordinary,” which will be published shortly. You can see my previous posts in the links below:

If you’re interested in things other than gardening, head over to my “everything including the kitchen sink” blog. I’ve got posts on everything from travel, graphic design, art, and entertaining to fascinating people I’ve come to know. You’ll see the same gardening posts that are on this blog as well. I just thought you might want to know what I’m up to when you don’t see plant postings for days on end!
