March 30 - Spring bulbs in the morning sun
March 29 - Lavender against the bright blue sky
March 28 - Bee in the Lavender
March 25 - A field of lavender.
March 23 - Perfect Ranunculus - This bud just opened this morning. I'm amazed at the perfect order of the petals. It's Spring and everything is bursting with new life. Just a few weeks ago my yard looked so desolate and now it's glorious. Isn't nature wonderful? This is full frame, but I wondered if I should crop to just that perfect flower, or leave it at my original thought of showing it in context. Always a dilemma.
March 22 - Clematis - It grows on a small vine in my yard. We had a few occasions of sun today with lots of clouds and a thundershower in the late afternoon. I'm glad I got out early in the morning to take this shot.
March 21 - Beautiful flowers for the first day of Spring. These are ranunculus, a tuberous-rooted plant with peony like blooms. I bought several plants at the nursery in yellow, red and purple. They remind me of tissue paper flowers.
March 13 - Palm Reflection - This is a reflection of a palm tree in a small creek. I was really pleased with this discovery and with the way it came out.
March 12 - The setting sun was making this cactus glow as I took an evening walk.
March 11 - Shamrock - St. Patrick's day is Saturday. This is my lucky shamrock plant. Many stores sell them at this time of year. There is really no such plant. Just a legend. This is actually Oxalis, a perennial that enjoys woodland conditions. It spreads and can be invasive, a weed unless you have a natural woodland garden. They do well in a pot in a sunny room.
