It’s Good to Be Flexible

Wal-Mart Dahlias

I’ve found the Garden Center at Wal-Mart is a treasure trove of floral possibilities.  No, not to include in my landscape; to shoot with my iPhone.  These dahlias were gorgeous.

Orange You Glad It’s Spring?

Azaleas are Blooming

Photos Taken on my iPad

No, Not with my iPad…..on my iPad.

These are teeny-tiny specimens, small enough to lay on top of my iPad.  With a blank white background (used an app called Color Softbox) the iPad becomes a backlit lightbox and things on top become translucent.  Then I just set my camera up on tripod, lay the iPad on the floor beneath, and start shooting.  Fun!

Here’s a dried up twin bud from a mini daffodil plant.

I clipped this from a shurb


Love how translucent this fern becomes when backlit.

Thought I’d switch up the stark white background on this one so added a texture to a trio of tiny ground cover flowers.



Happy Valentines Day
