Plum Blossoms
Plum Blossoms, 3/4/08

Today I was feeling creative. This picture started out as a photograph I took of a vase of plum blossoms. I’ve also been working on setting up a store on zazzle where I am selling postcards, stamps, cards and posters that feature my photography. I added a section today for more artisic creations like this. You’ll find it listed under Product Lines in the right hand column.

Every once in awhile I take a photo that makes me really happy. This one makes me smile.

Crocus Bouquet
Awakening, 3/13/09

The first signs of spring are beginning to show in Portland. It’s been one wacky winter here. I lost count of how many times we saw snow on the valley floor this year. The thermometer is creeping up, ever so slowly, but every little bit is something to celebrate. Hurray!

Maidenhair Fern
Maidenhair Fern, 5/11/08

The Maidenhair fern has always been my favorite. I love the jet black stems and how delicate it is. This one just showed up in my garden last year as a tiny little thing. I was very careful not to pull it when I was weeding. This year it is all grown up and quite beautiful.

Another Bleeding Heart
Bleeding Heart, 5/4/08

Bleeding Hearts are just the coolest flower I think. What a perfect name for such an intricate blossom. Right now my spring garden is near its peak bloom and looking quite lovely. This is Coral Bells (Heuchera) on the left – one of my favorites. On the right are orange Parrot Tulips.

This was such a gorgeous spring day in Portland. We really needed it too. This photo is from Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, an absolutely beautiful place to spend time.

Dew Laden

This was taken early in the morning at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn. Every year they have a tulip festival at the peak of the bloom. This year was delayed because of all the cold weather we had.

I got up at 5am to get these early morning shots. I got very muddy, but I had a great time! This next one is my other favorite from that day.

Day 80 - After the Rain
After the Rain, 3/26/08

Lupine leaves following a spring shower. I never noticed the pink and yellow centers before. I think these leaves are pretty enough to be flowers themselves.

Day 75 - In the Pink
In the Pink, 3/18/08

This Red-flowering Currant is one of my favorite shrubs. I always look forward to when it is in bloom. I don’t care too much for it’s smell though. For this reason I think it is best viewed from afar!
