Mountain Laurel is now (or just was) in bloom. Mainly whites and pinks. Above 2500 feet elevation. Beautiful!
I stylized my original photo of these vines slowly crawling up a brick wall. Virginia creeper vine.
Another iPhone “flower shot”…but this one was on a big Magnolia tree across the street from our house. Those blooms don’t stay around for long, so you have to be ready when they first open up.
I walk in the early morning every day except for Sundays…when I take a break. I used to jog/run daily when I was in the Army and for a time after I retired…but my legs paid the price for that, so it’s brisk walking now. Anyway, that’s not the point of this post. These pretty flowers are. I captured them with my iPhone camera in a neighbor’s yard. By the way, the camera in the iPhone is superb…for a phone camera. Rivals many stand alone digital cameras.
These small red wild flowers (what kind?) were sitting all alone on a rock outcrop in the Ozarks in Missouri. Nothing special photographically, but the scene speaks to the heartiness of these type flowers.
Our yard has many dogwood trees…and this year they have been by far the most beautiful I’ve seen over the past nine years.
First Christmas day snowfall in years here in southern Virginia. Wild bamboo looked better with some newly fallen snow resting on its pointed, bright green leaves. Hours afterwards, the bamboo was completely covered with the while stuff…as is our driveway.
