Blooming in my garden: Daffodils (Narcissus)

31 03 2012

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier
in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.

Ain’t gonna let a little rain stop me from photographing my Daffodils. (And yes, Nadine, I was out there barefoot!)

Flowers in February?

7 02 2012

This afternoon I made a quick trip over to Green Spring Gardens to meet with one of the horticulturists to verify that I have all of my plant IDs correct (thanks for your assistance, Mary!). From my short walk through the parking lot to the Horticulture Center, I saw a few Daffodils (Narcissus), several clusters of Snowdrops (Galanthus) and a few types of Crocus (I think these are Snow Crocus).

I know it’s only February 6 and Punxsutawney Phil did ‘predict’ six more weeks of “winter” last week, but I didn’t see much in the way of that season today at Green Spring Gardens! Not expecting to find anything to photograph, I didn’t bring my “big girl” camera, but I happened to have my Nikon Coolpix L110 in my bag and got a few shots of this flower cluster. The sight of flowers, however sparse, banished my SAD immediately!

Spring has sprung!

21 03 2011

Yesterday was officially the first day of spring, so it was fitting that my friend Karen and I make a stop at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden while we were out at her lakehouse in Lake Land ‘Or. The botanical garden is just 30 minutes away. This photograph was made in the conservatory, which was just a jumble of spring color.

Triumph Tulip ‘Negrita’

21 03 2011

Triumph tulips result from crossings between varieties of short-stemmed Early tulips and long-stemmed Darwin tulips. They are hardy in Zones 3-8 and make excellent potted plants. They require full sun and bloom in mid-spring. I photographed this beautiful bloom against a backdrop of bright yellow daffodils in the conservatory at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.
