iPhoneography: Japanese iris

3 06 2018

Surprise Japanese iris blooms! I saw two purple buds a few days ago and thought maybe it was a straggler from the purple and white ones that finished blooming weeks ago, but when the buds opened this morning, I knew it wasn’t. I honestly don’t remember planting this (which sounds like something I might do!). iPhone 7Plus, Camera+ app in macro mode, Snapseed app border

I’m likin’ this lichen!

20 05 2018

Rain is good for the garden. Too many days of rain is not good for me (or my beautiful Bearded irises, which I was fortunate to photograph in all their glory before the wet mess came). We’ve had about a week of solid rain. It let up some today and I saw a glimpse of the sun very briefly. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for sunny and no rain (yay!). I was at a Michael’s Craft Store and in the parking lot next to the car are several trees that are coated with various colors of lichen and moss. It’s actually quite beautiful and only in our rainforest-like weather could this occur. I went a little nuts with my iPhone using the Camera+ app in macro mode late this afternoon. I added the grunge borders in the Snapseed app. I plan on going back with my Nikon D850 to get some more images tomorrow.
