Hosta Glow

I love hostas–they have such beautiful, textured leaves. The flowers are “so-so”, but you can enjoy the foliage from spring till fall. I took these photos at the Sunken Gardens here in Lincoln when the sun was in the right position to create a glow in the leaves. Hosta Glow 1 _DSC1916 _DSC1932 copy _DSC1994 copy Hosta Glow II

Short-Lived Beauty

This is the time of year when there are some beautiful flowers that only last a few days. We have a lot of crab apple trees in our neighborhood, and they were gorgeous. We had an almost windless day this past weekend, and I took advantage of it to photograph some of the flowers. (A day later after a windy day, they were gone.) _DSC1804 copy 2 _DSC1808 copy _DSC1846 copy _DSC1832 copy _DSC1803 copy 2 _DSC1777 copy _DSC1727 copy _DSC1655 copy
