06.28.2015 Wet stuff

As predicted, for a change, we had a full day rain event.  In between showers I got out in the yard and found a couple of subjects I liked.

Virginia Spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana v.alba)

And Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron annuus).

    I’d say the rain wasn’t a hindrance at all. The photos aren’t just pretty, they have a refreshing feel about them.

    Not only that, I recognized both as flowers that live here. Well, in a manner of speaking. Our spiderwort is Tradescantia ohioensis, and the fleabane I see may be either Erigeron annuus or Erigeron philadelphicus. The USDA reports both in the spot where I found them, so I’ll just plead not-a-botanist and say we have fleabane.

  3. Steve, these are beautiful. The rain drops add a lot. Your photos seem to have outstanding color and clarity. Is it photo shop or you Mark IV camera or both?

    You should ask for rain more often Steve. We have plenty we can send you.

    • We are getting plenty of our own, Andrew, thank you. I am too paranoid about the electronics to spend much time in the rain although there have been no issues the few times I have.

  5. White spiderworts are rather uncommon (at least in central Texas) and therefore always welcome in a photograph. I assume it’s your northern latitude that allows spiderworts of any sort to still be flowering as late as the last days of June.
