This is dedicated to the good people at West Pottawattamie Master Gardeners and the Loveland Garden Club (Omaha). I had a great time leading photography learning workshops at both. The iris was courtesy of Loess Hills Floral Studio.
Well hello there, spring. Welcome back.
We were all excited that one of our California poppy plants was about to blossom, worried constantly that they'd be eaten by deer every night, and then cosmos popped out instead. Here's to beautiful impostors. Or to garden ignorance. Hell, here's to the weekend!
You would laugh if you saw how small this "vase" is. The clematis is from my mother-in-law's flower garden.
Since Punxsutawney Phil has let us down so completely, here's my own little voodoo rain dance to entice the warm winds of spring. Also, I need help identifying this flower. I think it's some kind of coreopsis, but I'm not sure. If it's a previously undiscovered species, I will name it the canary umbrella.
