Blue Flower

Perhaps a blue bonnet?
I'm not familiar with what type of flower this is,
so any help you could provide is appreciated.

Hollyhocks Starting to Grow

While these hollyhocks grew last season,
I was excited this week to see new
hollyhocks beginning to peak up
out of the ground. Let's hope
spring is here to stay so I can
have more of these beauties soon.

Let Your Stories Happen Till You Burst Into Bloom

I hope you will go out and
let stories happen to you,
and that you will work them,
water them with 
your blood and tears
and your laughter
till they bloom,
till you yourself
burst into bloom.
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes~

Seeing Green

With this winter going on and on,
it was nice to see some green
inside the Botanical Center.
May we see green outside in our
yards before too long from now.

Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden

The Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden
is a real treat, especially this time of year when
it's cold outside and we can't do any gardening.
I recently spent some time taking photos at
the garden and will be posting some of my favorites.
I love this one for it's wonderful colors and the
splash of green amongst the reds.

Hoar Frost

Hoar frost is a type of frost
that forms when the air is moist
and the moisture freezes on objects.
We had hoar frost today.
The ice crystals are beautiful.
The second photo is a close-up
of a section of the first photo
to better show off the hoar frost.

Hollyhock Bed

Another shot of hollyhocks,
these growing in a bed--
yes, literally a bed--
in the backyard.

Playing with Morning Glories

I love morning glories.
I allow some growth
of  morning glories
(or they'd take over the yard),
and I love to photograph them.
Then I like to play with the 
photos in Photoshop.
Have a happy and blessed 2014
and don't forget to take time to play.
