  • Springy Rainbow

    Springy Rainbow

    And to really emphasize the double rainbow here: I applied the “luminous” effect in Google Photos.

  • Bleeding Hearts

    Bleeding Hearts

    What a dramatic flower name – but it does describe them pretty well.

  • Fancy Tulip

    Fancy Tulip

    Not much more to say, just a unique tulip in the mix.

  • The magic of editing

    The magic of editing

    Google Photos has a neat feature, where once in a while it chooses some of your uploads to “stylize” and really spice them up with after-effects. If you look at the result on its own, you might think “wow, that was a great picture!”, though compared to the actual shot, you’ll take that right back.…

    Squirrel Crimes

    Spring is absurdly tense lately, having planted a pile of tulip bulbs in the front beds. Thinking it would be a nice sight for passerby’s, the flowers have become a bit of an obsession.

    Daffodil Days

  • Winter what?

    Winter what?

    There was barely a Winter this year, but here’s a bunch of ice in Spring.. sure. Blame El Nino. Or, just humans wrecking the planet.

    Interesting assortment of dew/rain/condensation on this morning.

  • Crusty Hyacinth

    Crusty Hyacinth

    A rather unimpressive winter is making a slow exit. Spring is emerging and ice is still falling. Note that this is 3/23 – as I post this on 4/5, there is still some wet snow floating around. None of it ever impressive.. just enough to be sloppy. Also cool from this day – looking up:

  • The first forsythia

    The first forsythia

    Well, back on 3/20 it was. As you read this they are popping open all over the place.
