Bleeding Heart from Our Pittsburgh Garden

There is something delicate and perfect about bleeding heart. The blooms are small but beautiful and have a unique shape. This one is our garden in Regent Square. It is about 5 years old and quite robust and safe from rabbits and deer.

Quarantine Iris Pittsburgh 5/6/2020

Normally this time of year we would be headed to the Phipps Conservatory to see the Spring Flower Show. Sadly though it is closed due to the global pandemic. Our Pittsburgh garden doesn’t have the quantity or diversity of the Phipps but still some wonderful blooms to soothe the soul.

Moment of Hope #11

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

As the daffodils fade, a new sign of hope emerges. This is a Rembrandt Tulip in my opinion one of the most striking Tulips in the world.

Pittsburgh has a number of beautiful spring days. If you have a garden enjoy it, maintain it. If you don’t have a garden now is a perfect chance to plant one.

A Perfect Bloom

A Lily Found

I haven’t been able to shoot much this summer being hobbled by a bad back. I have been spending my time instead editing and reimagining old images. I shot this lily years ago at our house in the Pocono Mountains. I remember thinking when I took it that I was treating this like a portrait with a key light. The shadows on the leaves of the stamen create a certain drama to the image.

Regent Square Day Lily #3… Pictures of Lily

We planted a lot of day lilies under the misconception that deer would not eat them. They destroyed the ones in our front garden but relentless application of repellent has saved the beauties in our back garden. The dark purple ones will be next to bloom. I think I will call this one Pictures of Lily. Thank you The Who.
