Friday Flower Fiesta (3-13-15)—Happy Friday the Thirteenth!

Friday Flower Fiesta

San Diego has had a very long rainy season this year, possibly the longest I’ve experienced since 1993 when I moved here. It started early this winter, with .37 inch in November 2014, 3.95 inches in December, .42 inch in January 2015, .04 inch in February, and .89 inch so far in March. We even had hail earlier this month!

The rain, spread out over several months, means that plants have a better opportunity to drink up some of that water. When that happens, every plant seems to bloom whether or not it’s that plant’s blooming season.

Here is a representative collection of Photographic Art stamps made from pictures taken this past week.

      I like them, too. I try that effect on almost every flower but it doesn’t always look good. I haven’t been able to determine just what kind of flower of picture that effect requires to look good.

    All gorgeous Russell. I guess we got lucky when we visited in December. We actually only had a 1 1/2 days of rain when we visited and it was refreshing, not cold (for us) Seems like eons ago 😀
    I’m very envious of the Foxglove. I’ve tried to grow it here so many times. It’s very borderline hardy here. When we were in Sonoma, it was growing in an alley, in the shade, en-mass, completely un-attended….gasp!

          I always wonder that, too, whenever I’m standing on a sidewalk taking pictures of a house, especially if I’m taking a picture of a doorway or a window with my zoom lens extended. So far no one has called the police on me………LOL
