I bought this new plant over the weekend called a Sun Star.
The following are my favorites from my little mini session this evening.
I stuck my Ranunculus in my light box the other day, the results of which you can see here.
As their blooms gets bigger and broader, I can’t help but take more photos. This is my first year of having some of these plants around the house, and I love them!
Aaaand something else. not quite sure what this one is called, or how it will look fully bloomed, but I’m looking forward to find out!
Also known as Galanthus, was spotted today as I strolled through the Lake Wilderness Arboretum in Maple Valley.
Because not much else is blooming yet, these little white flowers were easy to spot from a distance.
A few photos taken on a recent walk through Robinswood Park, in Bellevue Washington, with different PSE effects added for fun
While visiting my friend Ashley this week down in the Redwoods, we came upon a little patch of these orange blooms in her “backyard.”
They can be seen all along the roads right now in the Redwoods National Park, but this was my first up close and personal encounter.
They are so beautiful! I’ll admit, I was out there for a while….
I love the little hairs on these pods.
Originally, I was led to believe that the little yellow flowers on these bushes were Heather, but in looking into it more deeply, it seems that information was incorrect.
I found this helpful PDF that discusses plants in the Willamette Valley (which isn’t too far away) and came to the conclusion that this plant is in fact Scotch Broom, or Cytisus scoparius.
So, yay! I learned something new today.
Today = Success
