More Mystery Tree Blooms: Flower of the Day, Jan 11, 2017

This is my favorite stage of bloom for this tree.  At this point, the blooms look like something out of Dr. Seuss. Sort of goofy. We need more goofy in our lives, so I’m sharing them:

Flower of the Day – January 11, 2017 – Begonia

Orange Zinnia: Flower of the Day, Nov 2, 2016


The bees have been busy mining this flower.  They’ve left their dust in their wake.


Fall Colors: Flower of the Day, Oct. 25, 2016


I have no idea what this flower is.  Its leaves are dark green and lush, the flowers, the size of a finger, shy and retiring by comparison.  It grows beside my studio.  I’m sure I planted it, but I can’t remember when.


Imperfect Darling: Flower of the Day, Sept. 17, 2016 (Echinacea)


To my eye, this bedraggled and pockmarked echinacea bloom has a beauty all its own.


Nasturtium: Flower of the Day, Sept 15, 2016


Orange nasturtiums were the first flowers I ever planted myself, from seed, in the apartment I frequented for a year while I got my masters degree. They totally took over the soil by my back door stoop. I loved their cheery hardiness, but for some reason I’ve never planted them again. These are the first nasturtiums I’ve seen since that weren’t in a salad. Love the yellow.  Wish I’d asked for some seed.
