04.19.2012 Bluets Three Ways

Every Spring, I am eager to get out and visit my favorite spots around here.  There are so many wonderful Spring ephemerals and I wait all winter for their return.  One has to act quickly as they are termed ephemeral for a reason.  And this year it is even more true as the early heat and lack of rain is shortening their peak bloom time.

The one spot I don’t have to worry is my yard.  Our neighborhood is a site of a former farm and much of the soil here contains remnants of the fields and meadows from earlier days.  Bluets are one of the species we are fortunate to have pop up every year.  A good argument for not treating a lawn.

  1. All are quite nice but there is something about number one – It didn’t mesmerize me until I looked at the large version. But once I clicked on it I stared at the flowers for a long time (at least for me) – probably about 15 seconds. There’s a lot to see in there. I’d like to see it at 36×24. Nice shot.


  2. Just this week I saw (and of course photographed) the first bluets of the season I’d seen in central Texas. You did a good job depicting these tiny flowers.

    Oh wow! #1 is stunning, Steve….you gotta view it large, but that is one gorgeous image! The others are nice too, but I agree with Frank…there’s something mesmerizing about that first image.
