A photo blog connecting life and the natural world in and beyond the garden.
Friday night, April 19, 2013, 75 degrees. As I look toward the west, dark gray clouds are rapidly moving eastward. The flowers that have graced the spring gardens at Valley View have started to wilt and many may be decimated by tonight’s expected torrential downpour.
Take a moment to walk the gardens and see what has bloomed thus far.
Come back again to take a closer look at the flowers of Valley View, thank you
Mulching was completed, the sun what high and radiating warmth
Looking down onto the slope I saw an anomaly
Something straight, but not quite
A garden companion sharing a moment in time
Yes my tongue is red
Skunk Cabbage AKA Symplocarpus foetidus still draws me across the stream.
This is the third year I’ve photographed this Pennsylvania wildflower and I do believe these are the best photos to date.
Taken with my new Nikon Coolpix P510 at approximately 6:00 PM the shapes and color are crisp and clear.
Still erotic and sensual as they break through the forest floor their colors and shapes draw not only human eyes but pollinating insects.
