One photo a day challenge: Day 224. Ok. Back to the plan for today. Getting back on track with photographing the newly acquired flowers today. The plant I photographed today is a really cool Sedum that was flowering at the nursery when I decided to buy it. This particular plant is the Thundercloud, Stonecrop variety. I really like these types of plants because they have these thicker stockier stems. They feel like… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 185. Over the years I have planted many varieties of flowers at our house. More often than not I have not been successful in having the perennials return in following years. But there has been one flower that has reliably returned year after year. Maybe I just don’t pay enough attention to where and how to plant the flowers. So then they fail to regrow the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 179. We had a little bit of rain today. The rain always creates nice photography opportunities for plants. This was the perfect time to get the macro lens out and take some close up photographs. I am planning to plant these plants in our flower garden. That location will bot be as easy to access for macro photographs. I am glad this confluence of events allowed… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 124. Spring continues to progress up here on the hill where we live. Living up at a little bit of elevation has a strange effect on spring for us. When we drive down off our hill we see grass greening, plants sprouting, leaves unfurling and flowers blossoming. We see all these signs of spring happening down in town. But for us up on the hill it… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 115. Yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was a great day for getting outside. The day was a perfect representation of what you want in early spring. If you are like me one thing early spring means to me is blooming flowers. Plants and nature coming back to life and growing after the winter thaw. I love plants and flowers. They are amazing in so many… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 106. I am not great with plants. I am especially bad at keeping potted plants alive. The likelihood of a plant surviving decreases exponentially if it is an indoor house plant. I love plants. And I really enjoy house plants. But it often turns into a cycle of buying new plants for the house after each previous plant dies a quick death. Orchids always say they… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 101. I spent the winter trying to keep some of the flowers I planted in pots last spring and summer alive. It is unclear how many have survived. But there are some that are clearly showing signs of life. Some plants are beginning to grow new stems and leaves. Two plants that are of the same variety seem to be doing particularly well. This Gerbera Daisy… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 97. I love plants and flowers. But I am never very successful with keeping house plants alive. Maybe I am not good at following directions. Perhaps I am just not attentive enough. Or I may just not pay close enough attention. Taking care of a house plant seems so simple on its face. But there does need to be a degree of attention paid. I need… Read More

One Photo a Day Challenge: Day 87. I have at least 5 plants that I have successfully overwintered in my basement. If I hadn’t tried to overwinter them in my basement they would have died. I can tell that at least these 5 plants have been successful to this point because they are actively growing new foliage. I just discovered one that I had suspected would survive the overwintering had indeed survived…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 73. We have been experiencing some warmer weather in upstate New York. Most of the snow in our region has melted. More often than not lately the high temperature for the day ahs been above freezing. Spring is a week away. It is almost one of the best times of the year. The time of year when all the new growth begins to emerge. Spring is… Read More
