Flower of the Day (FOTD): Matilija Poppy

The poppy on self’s front porch has started blooming again!

Took a picture for Cee Neuner’s FOTD Challenge.

Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: 2 September 2021

Self planted this right next to her Fourth of July rose (and forgot what it’s called). After the Fourth of July stops blooming, early summer, this vine starts blooming. It’s a very homely flower, but it’s the only thing (other than the Agapanthus) blooming in her backyard right now.

Thanks to Cee Neuner for the FOTD Challenge!

Last Photo on the Card Challenge – August

Thank you, bushboys world, for the Last on the Card Challenge. It is always fun to look back.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Agapanthus (Again)

Self is pretty sure she’s already used agapanthus for Cee’s FOTD, as soon as they started blooming. Now, her backyard’s looking a bit parched, most of the blooms are blown, except for one. She tried photographing from different angles: back and front. In the end, she liked her first shot the best, because you can really see the silky-looking texture of the blue petals.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Planting from Seed

Self has never successfully grown anything from seed.

Nevertheless, this week, she will try planting sweetpeas. Fingers crossed.

Posting for Cee Neuner’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge, 20 August 2021: Cambria Plant Nursery

The nursery is just off the main road to Cambria. Self visited for the first time a few days ago. Highly recommend to anyone who’s in that neck of the woods. The nursery is large! And filled with plants of every type.

Decided to make this, rather than a specific flower, the Flower of the Day, Aug. 20.

As always, thank you to Cee Neuner for hosting the FOTD challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): “Here Comes the Sun”

Prompt is from the Beatles song, sung by George Harrison.

Thanks to Cee Neuner for the prompt. You can find the full lyrics on her blog.

I chose my inspiration from the refrain:

Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right.

I have a collection of solar lanterns. My newest one is a bright, butter-yellow.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Abutilon, from the Back

Self finds photographing abutilon very tricky. The flowers don’t look good up close, unlike roses.

A few days ago, she tried photographing them from the back. This was the result. I kinda like it.

Thank you, Cee Neuner, for hosting FOTD!

Good Morning, Red! Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC), 11 August

The CMMC this week is RED. And it just so happens self has a lot of red on her front porch!

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Abutilon

This time, self made sure to start taking pictures well before sundown.

Her newest abutilon is soooo pretty! She decided to keep it in a pot, so when the summer heat is at its worst, she just moves it to the shade.

Thank you to Cee Neuner for hosting this challenge!
