Early July bloom day scans


I know, bloom day isn't until Tuesday. But I had some time on my hands last night to work on these and time tonight to post them. Sorry to jump the gun. Holler if you want IDs. There are some weird things in there.

These are works of art. They remind me of old botanical prints.

Your scans are just amazing!

I love the color themes! You know, these would be especially striking as a series, framed on a wall. :D

I am so intrigued by these – going to look around your blog to see if you have any explanations about how they are made.

These are great. Very nice mix of species and the color separation idea is brilliant.

I wrote up this activity for another website I work on here:

It’s fun. A moment to learn. I lifetime to master.

Lynn @ 11:40 am #

well I’m inspired! and intrigued…going to do some ID sleuthing before bugging you about what’s what. Was so into the Odoulf “Planting the Natural Garden” book while I waited for hours again at quick care on Sunday, and so awash in botanical names I actually had a serious plant design dream (could be the codeine). Thanks for the early shots.

Nice. I love the white stocks.

Layanee @ 8:17 am #

I have to concur that the monochromatic color scheme is very striking. Love the white but all are great!

Gail @ 11:39 am #

The pinkish and purplish have caught my eye….such artistry.

Linda @ 5:11 pm #

Hi again, I was thinking of the flower to the right of the feverfew at the top, what do you call it, it is very nice.

Phenomenal, as always. You’re a favorite stop on the Bloom Day tour.

Those are works of art! For some reason, I am drawn to “warmish”, but “purplish” is also one of my favorites.

You are getting really good at those scans!

Cindy @ 5:16 am #

Wow. Can I just say Wow! Love the scans.

You should see about getting these distributed as art posters. I would buy one, the purple. No, wait, the pink. No, no, the white one. Heck, I’d buy them all. These are the best scans yet. Bravo!

These are gorgeous, Craig. I agree with your other commenters–they are works of art.

And besides your artistry, you have some beautiful blooms there as well :-)

No kidding, I was just about to ask that. I remember the mimosa quite fondly from my Long Island childhood, and I was astonished to find it in your scan. “That isn’t hardy around here, is it?” I was thinking to myself, and I was just getting ready to ask you when you brought it up yourself. So, how is it that you have mimosa blossoms in your scan?

Anna @ 10:26 pm #

OH wow!! That is so good it made me cry. Dee at Red Dirt Ramblings sent me over.

Anna @ 10:27 pm #

Oh–yea, and Carol at May Dreams Gardens too. They were bragging on your work.

Wowzers, Les, those are fantastic. You need to sell them as botanical prints. I think you could have a secondary income.

Anna @ 11:53 am #

I forgot to mention that Barbara @ Mr. McGregor’s Daughter is the one that posted on plurk about you then Dee and Carol chimed in. Too many people love your work. I wanted you to know who to give credit to for passing the word. I’m sure glad they did cause now I’m a fan.

Darn, I thought that I had posted on here already to ask you what that white star-shaped flower is above the white foxglove… very pretty, and it seems to me that it must be a bulb of some kind (I have no idea why I think that, though) but I can’t quite place it.

Ah well, since I’m asking now I might as well also chime in with: Which one is the mimosa flower?

Wow, these scans are amazing. I’d buy prints!

There is no way I’d sacrifice my flowers to make scans, but maybe that’s because I don’t have an abundance. I have just the right amount, so if I harvested them for scans, my garden would be empty. Emptier than after the deer visit. So I’ll come here and enjoy your beautiful scans – I agree – these are the best yet!
