floral fantasia (currently in rehearsal)

a calla lily, currently living in front of the house across the sidewalk from ours, has been unfurling for 2.5 weeks. i’m glad it’s taking its sweet time.


this pink rose is just peeking over the top of our shower’s atrium fence quietly begging me to take its photo. i relented.


a golden rose bud closed tight against the cold, wet winter weather of southern california.


these cyclamen (doesn’t that name remind you of dr. who?) seeded themselves three pots and a pot stand away from their mother ship.


perhaps the best floral photo i’ve ever taken (i only slightly heightened the contrast).


more on the century plant (one of my obsessions) in a post coming this week.


i don’t know what kind of flower this is, do you? but i loved the way it was holding the sunlight the other afternoon.
