My spirits soar…

30 04 2015

All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.
On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.
I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.

Calder-esque

26 07 2013

I photographed this beautiful (unidentified) tree outside the visitors center at Brookside Gardens yesterday morning. I thought it looked like an Alexander Calder mobile.

UPDATE: Thanks to a fellow gardener/blogger, Les (of www.atidewatergardener.blogspot.com), I think we may have an identification—Euphorbia cotinifolia.

Buttonbush

28 06 2011

I photographed this Buttonbush cluster (Cephalanthus occidentalis), also known as Button willow and Honey balls, this morning at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in Washington, D.C. A native wetland tree, it can grow 10-15 feet tall and spread 15-30 feet. The mid-summer blooms are rich in nectar that attracts butterflies and other insects.
