GBBD scans and pix: Details, details.


I was in a hurry doing my scans this week. I think they look like crap. (They're at the end.)

But there are details within each that look OK. So they're first.

Cool detail:

Oh, yeah, pure crap. (g)

You must have held back on the crappy ones. These look great!

I think your white scan is gorgeous. Like an old fashioned wedding dress with lots of lace and beading.

I’m with Carol… I think that you forgot to put up the crappy ones, Craig. These are gorgeous!

Your joe-pye weed is interesting. I never noticed the purple stems on them before for some reason, but now that I google them I see that is pretty common. This is why I really like bloom day posts, to get a good idea of what things look like in the garden, even if I can’t grow them in my own.

I am with Pam, my favorite is the white scan, and I am not normally a white person. I also think the dew on the daylily shot is stunning. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! What gorgeous pictures! And thanks to you I now know the name of the flower I posted a picture of on my own bloom day post – Joe-pye weed. Mine is also in the wild. I think it’s so nice looking with its dark purples and lighter greens.

Now I’m off to edit my post to include the name of the flower…

Grouping the flowers by color for your scans is such a beautiful way to showcase a number of blooms in just one photo. I liked them all, but I too find the white collections absolutely stunning. Thanks for sharing them!

Had I seen the photo of the lilies with the clinging water droplets yesterday, I would have been wild with envy, but our heat wave (only 3 days, but we are spoiled) broke last night with thunder and rain. Now I only envy your photographic skills. If you ever create that calendar, put me down as a customer.

To me, the detail white scan looks almost like (dare I use the word?) frost. I love the closeup of the Liatris. They are so funky/alien looking.
