Bloom Day | May 2010

I finally broke down and bought a new camera.  Of course my previous one had to break just as I was about to shoot a beauty shot for a garden I want to put in my portfolio…argh.  I opted for a super point and shoot rather than an SLR since I don’t have the patience right now to learn those nuances!  This one (Canon Powershot G11) is complicated enough.

I’m not being stingy with the pix, honest, I just have to dash out the door!  May is the toughest month to do anything but work, eat and sleep… I hope to see everyone’s beauty shots later when I’m not so rushed, rushed, rushed!

Hosta and fern

This hosta is enormous and has gone with me from garden to garden to garden.  The deer don’t eat it until late in the season…

Amsonia hubrichtii

This one also has a story.  It was given to me as a wispy little piece–now over 4′ across and screaming to be moved from its present spot.  Native and one of my favorite deer resistant perennial for big statements-incredible fall color.

  1. You have captured beautifully that illusive amsonia blue~it always washes out to a sad white in my photos! Have fun with the new camera…what did you get? gail

    That photo was taken early a.m. before the sun was up over the trees. Maybe that’s why the color is true.
