Today’s Flowers: Coreopsis

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/coreopsis.jpg

This was cropped from a 2006 photo, taken from my old digital Kodak Canon Powershot. I see the photo is not as crisp as those taken with my current Canon Powershot. Could be my skill has improved. It is a threadleaf coreopsis. Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this […]

We received these carnations from a friend who was visiting I enjoyed photographing them. I later tossed a few in my front yard for some outdoor photographs. You may remember my carnation on a sidewalk. Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this lovely and fun meme. .

Today’s Flowers in Winter

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/heather-466x350.jpg

This is the last flower I can find on my block. It is in a neighbor’s front yard, a neighbor who has many perennials planted in front of her house instead of grass. I believe this is a kind of heather of the family Erica. Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, […]

Today’s Flowers in Jerusalem

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/flower_jerusalem-262x350.jpg

It’s cold and gray and *not* snowing (we got just a sprinkle) in New Jersey (I like snow, it makes me happy), so I am reaching into the archives and bringing you this tall, pretty flower (agapanthaceae or agapanthus, thank you to my brilliant European blogger friends, Ilana-Davita and Jientje) that I photographed last July […]

Today’s Flowers: Dianthus

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/dianthus.jpg

This dianthus is the last flower in my front yard, other than a straggly, lanky, tall yellow snapdragon. It waves its purplish pink petals at us, like a flag of surrender to the oncoming winter months. Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this lovely and comforting meme.

Today’s Flowers: Fall Garden

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/latefall_rudbeckia.jpg

Here are a few photos I took of my garden last week. Above is a rudbeckia, a black-eyed susan, peeking out from behind white alyssum. Pretty much all my annuals have now faded or died. In the spring I’ll photograph the azaleas, here shown with red leaves, that are under the andromeda shrub. A lonely […]

Today’s Flowers: Marigold

https://www.leoraw.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/marigold_fallen_leaves.jpg

Marigolds look pretty among the fallen leaves of autumn. These yellow and/or orange flowers grow in front and on the side of my house. I sprinkle the seeds in spots I want them to appear next spring.           Today’s Flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr. Thank you, Luiz, for this lovely meme.
