In the mornings at the cabin, everything was covered in moisture from the rains the night before and would stay that way until the sun could find its way through the tree tops and down to dry everything out. These flowering plants were just on the cusp of blooming while we were there and are most likely in full bloom right now.
I am a sucker for flowers in the wild. My Grandmother and Mom are avid gardeners and has a green thumb and I followed suit. As many times as I tell myself that I will not photograph another cone flower, I find myself drawn to the intricate detail of their design and the next thing I know my camera is up to my eye and I am zeroing in its delicate petals. These three are now available as prints as well. Simply click on the images to be transported to my online print shop.
I was going through all my hard drives yesterday morning looking for a specific photograph to submit on Snapwire for a request assignment and I came across this older image. This photograph was shot about 8 years ago in Toledo, Ohio and remains one of my personal favorites from my collection.
Sometimes you are the first to bloom, and sometimes the only. Don’t be afraid to grow and see where it takes you.
It is that time of year again. Everything is getting greener and starting to flower. Welcome to spring!
I did a similar photograph to this one a few years ago when I found one of these flowers all dried up in fall. This time around I was able to find one early on in spring.
