shine on

One of the many beautiful things about gardens is the way the flowers complement and contrast with one another  at the same time that each one is is busy being its own individual miracle.

One shining star doesn’t throw the rest of the garden into shadow – it just helps every other thing to shine more brightly.

mystery flower? there’s an app for that.

I couldn’t resist one more ode to the beloved bulb garden. I even used these blooms to test out my new favorite app: LikeThat Garden. Just snap a good close-up of the flower with your phone and the app identifies it in seconds! So far, it’s batting 1000. And, it’s free!
