Unusual Blooms

I love these flowers. They are called “Bat Faced Cupheas”.  Aren’t they adorable? This link tells about them. I ordered mine via the web and they’re growing like crazy. I have them in a pot in the sunny front yard. They make me smile every time I look at them.

Here’s a few photos of some of the potted flowers blooming beautifully in my front yard. I love this time of the year and we’ve been very lucky to have not only tolerable temperatures but rain as well. Everything is green and happy. Enjoy.

Only For Dallas Shoppers

I made a small collection of photo necklaces and they are only available in Dallas at Makers Connect. Nowhere else. Not mail order. Not Etsy. You must go to the store and pick up your necklace. And you’ll want to. My nature photos look fabulous, if I do say so myself, as necklaces. For those of you with a sense of humor, that’s everyone, right?, I made necklaces featuring my crocheted and drawn critters. Funny face critter necklaces. Everyone needs at least one of those. Hurry now to Makers Connect before they’re gone, gone, gone……

Trying to be Spring

The weather here in Dallas is just as wacky as the rest of the country: hot one day, chilly the next. But some of the plants and trees in my backyard feel that spring is upon us and are showing their colors just to prove it. Here’s a couple of photos I shot yesterday of my rosemary bush and  redbud tree both showing their own shades of purple. Glad to see it. The yard always looks better with some purple blooming. Enjoy.

Purple Petals

In the heat of the summer, it is hard to get motivated to do anything after I get home from the day job. Becoming one with the couch is about all I can muster the energy for. But I managed to shoot some flowers that I have in a basket on my front porch that were speaking to me the other day as I was watering them. “We won’t last forever” they said. “Soon we’ll only be a memory”. They were right, so I got out my camera and macro lens and these are my favorite shots of my purple porch petals. Enjoy.

Crape Myrtle Dreams

We have four crepe myrtle trees that came with the house when we bought it. The heat right now is miserable in Dallas, but the crape myrtles bask in the sun and emit hot hot pink rays of joy right to your face. Yes it’s hot, they seem to say, but look how pretty I am. How can I argue that?

Backyard Sunflowers

My first sunflower plants. I never tried to grow them before. I don’t know why, I guess I just didn’t think about it. But now, thanks to my co-worker Claudia, I have blooming plants in my yard. I can’t wait for them to to multiply and turn my whole backyard yellow. The dogs will just have to get used to sharing the yard. Clicking on the photos will take you to my Flickr set of  more sunflower images. Enjoy.
