Been shooting, just not posting...

I was really bad about it this year. I was definitely shooting more images than I had time to go through to post. Once I got behind, I just felt like I could not come close to catching up, so I just "let it ride". Not a good idea if you have a blog. Well, now that it is cold outside, and wildflowers are mainly a distant memory, I will attempt to bring my images up to date. The images in this posting were taken in the first two weeks in April 2010. Let's see what we have here.

Primrose (Pimula vulgaris).

This wildflower is known as Money Plant (Lunaria annua).

This is Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis). It is an early spring bloomer, and always beautiful.

The beautiful Apple Blossom.

These wildflowers are Snowdrops, and its variety is known as the Common Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis).

More Snowdrops, this time with a visitor. I did not like the movie "Titanic", but I cannot help but think that this bug is doing it's impression of Kate Winslet on the bow of the ship.

This is Cypress Spurge (Euphorbia cyparissias)

This is Wood Poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum).

Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica).

These are Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica). These are also known as Virginia Cowslip, Lungwort Oysterleaf, and Roanoke Bells.

This is Periwinkle (Vinca minor). This prolific wildflower is always a pleasure to photograph. This one was fun due to the "pinwheel" look of the petals.


  1. Oh great, what a beautiful flower.

    Just like to share with you a famous quote...

    "The voice of parents is the voice of gods, for to their children they are heaven's lieutenants. " -- Shakespeare
