And More Pictures of Spring

You may be bored with these spring pictures posts but I’m not. I seem to be endlessly fascinated with small things lately; they are unbelievably intricate if you look closely.

Blackberry Maiden and Her Bee Suitor

This blackberry maiden is being visited by her bee paramour, who is all up in her business.

California Poppies and Vetch

I like the tangle and riot of color that makes up wild places.


Maypole top and blue sky.

Redwood Sorrel

This is redwood sorrel on the forest floor at Muir Woods. When the sun shines too brightly on this shade-loving plant, it folds its leaves down to minimize the exposure.


I’ve never really gardened from seed before. This spring Lucas and I put a variety of seeds directly in the ground or in pots. So far we seem to be having good luck with the corn, pumpkins, chard, cucumber, nasturtiums, morning glories, and four o’clocks. It’s kind of a miracle when the little seedling emerges from the earth! If they thrive it will be another miracle.

Blue Wildflowers

Blue is rather rare among plants. We found this wildflower at Indian Grinding Rock in April.

Like Birds

Red seeds soar above the Japanese maple in my backyard. To me they look like birds in flight.

    I’ll never get tired of these, either. I love your eye for color, and I’m all about the macro shots!
