Enjoyed the 'Art In Bloom' exhibit at the #NorthCarolina Art Museum. Artists are tasked with creating a floral display that represents a picture or grouping of pictures. Here are a few I loved. I've tried to show the floral display with the art piece it represents.

For #FlowerFriday I have chosen to showcase the #TulipTarda which is a wild dwarf species that is #perennial and self seeding. The showy clumps have a honey fragrance and a buttery yellow star with a cream edging that remind me of #friedeggs.

Bought some lovely Ranunculus today. Weird name, beautiful flowers.

Ranunculus are hardy Springtime bloomers, which like to be planted in winter. They are perennials that can be left in the ground, or the bulbs can be recovered, stored, and planted the following year, like annuals.

They bloom 3-4 weeks, require full sun, and produce gorgeous blooms. They're also deer resistant!

This is a watercolor painting in a rectangle format. It is a still life of some pansies, and the pansies are in a glass jar, which is a vintage jar with a blue handle. It is painted loosely yet has a lot of details in the flowers. There are a lot of leaves in green yellow and a mix of colors. The pansies are mostly blue with some accent of purple in various shades. The painting is translucent..

I had a ranunculus flower that was slowly changing color from a reddish purple to a bluish purple. I think I've exaggerated the blue a bit, but that's what you get to do, they call it poetic license😂

It comes in fine, art prints, and more....

Photographed at 500mm with "Big Bertha", my 200-500 telezoom. Being further away from the flower (minimum focusing distance is ~6 feet with this lens) helps to have more sparkly stuff in the out-of-focus areas in front of the flower. :)

It's Friday, so that means I will post some flowers #flowerfriday . I think I unconsciously painted this in the colors of a beautiful sunset. For the last few years, I've been excited about using rose gold in my art. In order to achieve the color, I just took some gold gouache paint, and mixed it with some rose. It took me a while to figure that out..LOL

Every 4th of July a family reunion is tradition. Of course, I love seeing all the relatives but I always enjoy a visit to my aunt that lives in the country. She has not only great flowers all around but lots of yard decorations, too. This plant was growing next to a shed and I really didn't notice the spider silk until I uploaded it to my computer....and it looked like it was…

Seems like it's almost obligatory to post a "first crocus" photo so here's mine. This is a "volunteer" in my lawn and I don't know where it came from. It's unlike the ones in my flower beds. It's one of my markers to indicate the changing of the seasons. Very early this year. Last year it bloomed on March 7. Of course it was 70 degrees F (21 C) here today! NOT NORMAL for New England!

@doctorjaymarie Here's a Phacelia minor (Calif. bluebell) for ya. But it ain't spring yet. Another couple of months before I see these guys in my garden again. At least for me, photography is seasonal. It makes it special to have a spring season and fall season. Celebrate the seasons! But a #FlowerFriday is cool too.

This classic, elegant, pure white #Clematis, Henryi, blooms all summer and is quite showy on the trellis or arbor. Clematis like their "head" in the sun and their "feet" in the shade so a rock at the base of the vine or another plant helps to shade the roots.

* After the Smoke Bush (aka Cloud Tree - Cotinus 'Grace') has flowered, it leaves these wispy structures for a little while

Close up of clusters of red and green structures (I think they're seed pods) radiating out from a central stem. Each is oval with a slightly jagged each, looking like the flower structure of a bromeliad.

Taken in the drainage ditch just behind our back fence. It's not strictly speaking "in" our garden, but it's within 50cm of it, so I'm taking ownership here!
Intense dark-blue stems of an eryngium, where one splits into three with a rosette of sharp leaves around the join. Close-up view
Thin stems covered in hair point in random directions, looking like spider's legs. They criss-cross and overlap. The background is blurred, being the rest of the plant itself
Seen in close-up, a single pale pink flower with darker pink veins and long stamens clutches onto a flower stem. Just next to it, the buds of more flowers yet to open curls upward, dark-furred.

What's special to me about the Acton Arboretum is the large swath of forest devoted to cultivate wildflowers, many species I'd never seen before. I was fond of this flower, which looks like a columbine to me, though I hadn't seen that shade before.
