I spent this weekend with Family down in our usual log cabins at Skeagh Lake in County Cavan. I came across this tiny buttercup almost lost inside tall blades of lush green grass that were drenched after a downpour an hour earlier.
The violet flower of this Tillandsia ‘Anita’ is in full bloom. This one has been on the back burner since April. I was fascinated by this plant when I came across it in Johnstown Garden Centre in Nass, Kildare.
The Calla Lily must be one of my favorite flowers. It has been a long time since I have attempted captured an image of this Lily as it is one of those flowers I find difficult to do justice too.
I posted an image of a single Crazy Daisy a little while back and thought I would follow-up today with a slightly different composition.
I decided on this occasion to visit the Alpine Gardens as I rarely spend any time there and I was confident I was missing something. And I was right, I came across this Mountain Cornflower which I had not seen before.
My Saturday sunrise trip to Trim Castle turned into an 11 hour photographic marathon and I loved every minute of it 🙂 The images from Trim should follow later this week but to get things kicked off I thought I would post this Crazy Daizy.
An early morning visit to the Botanical Gardens in Dublin treated me to a freshly watered Rhododendron. The flowers were in full bloom and saturated in heavy droplets of water.
Purple Crocuses were having way too much fun on my blog this Spring so I thought I would break up the party a little with an Anemone. They are a flowering plantsin the buttercup family Ranunculaceae in the north and south temperate zones.
Well it appears as if March is the month of the Purple Crocus, atleast according to this blog. This is the 3rd image I have posted and I have in fact published 5 to my portfolio. I mentioned earlier that these flowers, along with Tulips mark the beginning of Spring for me.
Another image from my recent trip around the Botanical Gardens in Glasnevin here in Dublin. This is also of a Purple Crocus that are in such abundance at the moment. You can just about make out in the back a veritable sea of purple. I talked recently about the love-hate relationship I have with my 70-200…
Spring has most certainly sprung here in Ireland. Along with the new growth we have had some beautiful days of hazy blue skys and bright sunshine, still on the chilly side though. While I really enjoyed our wintertime this year with plenty of frost and snow I am ready to move on to a new season. Crocuses,…
A close-up image capturing the shape and texture of a flowering Strelitzia Reginae with dewdrops on its base. The Strelitzia Reginae, also known as the Bird of Paradise Flower, indigenous to South Africa has been on my photographic list from the first time I saw it almost two years ago in our local Botanical Gardens here in Dublin.
