Here’s another of my “experimental” portraits of Shawna in her wonderful desert-inspired garden. We wanted to do something sophisticated but contrast the look with those fun gardening boots. Shawna added the (mock)tail for a bit of panache!

Shawna is an accomplished author and a passionate anti-inflammatory wellness lifestyle advocate.

Stargazer lilies

Thought I’d play with the black velvet background behind this group of Stargazer lilies blooming in my backyard garden this afternoon. I’ve previously done single blooms (mostly of Bearded irises), but wanted to see what the effect would be for an entire grouping of blooms. I shot this image with my iPhone 12 Pro Max using the Camera+ 2 app in macro mode.

Feed me, Seymour!

This one is, well, um, interesting. It’s got a Little Shop of Horrors “Feed me, Seymour” vibe. I’ll capture it fully unfurled and see if its demeanor changes.

Stargazer lilies

My huge cluster of stargazer lilies put on quite a show a few weeks ago! 18 blooms across four plants, and so fragrant that I could smell them from the front porch!
