Thanks Russell, of all the items in my garden she is the one that has come along the fastest and in only four years, but I've put a lot of effort into her. If only I could keep her this size, she is clearly going to be the death of me as a teenager.

Updated shots and some new ones

Post  Jim Doiron on Sun May 22, 2011 3:28 am

We had a storm late in the day and then sun came back out right before dusk. The light was so great I had to shoot some things in it. Here are a few:
Quaking Grass

Korean fern

Hosta

Wild Strawberry

Geranium

Not sure what this one is?

These were taken the other day when the sun came out for a moment.
Violet

Hosta

Again, not really sure what this one is but it is about to flower so I will get a shot when it does.

Thanks everyone.

Jim,
I really like the colors in the after the storm photos. The lighting gives everything a nice hue. The pots and plants look really nice. I particularly like the strawberry planting.

Thanks John and Todd, it was pretty impressive light, all the more so because it was so late in the evening, close to 9pm or later. I guess the light was reflecting a little longer off of the cloud cover which is what made it so different. Here is a shot of the sky as it was getting too dark to shoot anything else.
