Mushroom house

My hypothesis is there’s no pandemic in mushroom-house world.

Mi in GA

Reverse upward mobility of a sort…no?

Look down! Look up!

Gutter penny

Gutter penny! In these days of heightened awareness of germs, I let it lay.

Tulip poplar petal

I think of this as a tulip poplar petal, but that is not probably the proper name for the plant part to a botanist. Which I am not.

US flag backlit

I wasn’t only looking down today (so as not to trip). Perfect backlighting on this plastic US flag. It appears to be an all-weather flag, despite that proper flag code/protocol, as I was instructed anyway, means that when the sun goes down, a flag must be lit if outdoors….

Har har

Bulbs hangin in there

One more last-bulb-blooms shot….

Leaves emergent

Emergent leaves…and that means shadows…yay—perfect timing for the high-in-the-80s expected at the end of the week.

Free library dogwood

Dogwood’s is a scene-stealer at this free-library-with-reading-bench.

Azalea genetics

Interesting genetics.

For a palate cleanser (currrent events, ya know), we just watched a couple of “Republic of Doyle” episodes. Comedy in Newfoundland.

Moment of zen

Petal wash

So much rain that spring petals washed downstream….


Around the corner: wisteria!

Delicate iris

Later I found this delicate iris—shape contrasts to the usual bulkier ones….

Of course, that title phrase is not original…just saying I find flowers relaxing, which is meditative (literal meaning of the Japanese word).

Color bar (ooops, minus the bar)

Green is coming

MaNachur is rolling out the green!

Hot pink azalea rain

I’m calling this a soft hot-pink.

Maple palmatum

There’s some of that green! Acer palmatum. Native to Asia.

Plus pollen, of course

White redbuds

Unusual white redbud. Some blossoms have a pinkish tinge or veins.

Sassafras leaves

Looks like sassafras!

Spring meadow garden

Meadow-style presentation.

Dunno fleurs

Lovely. Name unknown to me.

More, more, more

More dogwood

More dogwoods in bloom!

More pollen

More pollen. And evidence we had overnight precip.

More iris

More iris.

Flower tour continues

First dogwood

First blooming dogwood this year…in my little world. Redbuds are still in bloom, but this is evidence that the season is moving along. Also, spring is now with us according to the stars.

Still life w blossom

Still life. Moss and a dropped yellow jasmine (aka jessamine) trumpet. Or trumpet-let.

Fringe blossoms

That’s some red!

Iris purple

Dramatic iris. Iri? Is that the plural?

Butterfly talk

Redbuds above

Glory days of redbuds.


Redbuds little friends.

Stay healthy

Butterfly admonition: stay healthy.

In triplicate. Squared. Over and over.

All over the place

Moon in center

Is that code for social distancing? Hmm; now that you mention it…. [Moon is at very center of this photo and difficult to spot…just before sunrise.]

Double cherry

Super hyper-petalled blooms…cherries, I think.

Bridge formerly RR

Atlanta’s famous BeltLine is an urban rails-to-trails conversion. Here’s a former RR bridge, now a foot-bridge. Graffiti does not discriminate.

Lingering bulbs

Lingering bulbs.

Oak leaf leaves

Opening oakleaf hydrangea cluster, with a centrally located flying seed.
