    mostly mine. i am about to do a few flowers. my soft underbelly is exposed!

    my wildflower garden has "evolved" over the past few years and i have included a few exotics around it. it provides a natural place that i feel comfortable in.

    You have some nice flowers there. Nice job on the Shooting Stars. You don't see them too often and I find them difficult to photograph.

    thanks to you both!

    i suppose the difficulty in photographing shooting stars is because they are arrayed around a central stem. if you get close enough to fill a frame the dof is lost. it also seems that everytime i want to try a shot or two the wind is blowing! lol!

    i have toadshade and large flowered(white) trillium both in the yard. they have not broken the surface as yet this far north. i did see toadshade in bloom on the south tip of IL. this past weekend. i also saw one lone wild geranium in bloom along with larkspur, celadine, wild blue phlox and virginia bluebells. spring is marching northwards!

    luck!
