Ah Spring.  The beautiful awakening of flowers, pollen and the honey bees that still remain.  The the time of year I love to roam the garden and take photographs of all the pretty blooms that appear after a Winter’s rest.

This year we have Icelandic Poppies that we planted in the Fall and they seem to be very happy to be here.  So here are a few of my favorite shots for you.  The piece above “Fire Poppy 2” made its way onto the “Pixels: The Art of the iPhone” gallery website today (you can view it along with all the other wonderful art here).

    Tracy,
    Wow. These are each nice in very different ways. Thanks for posting them.

    I enjoy the painterly textural qualities you achieved in “fire poppies” and “fire poppies two”. They are both evocative of the faces and throats of Georia O’keefe’s flowers for me. They draw one in to the center of the blast of colors.

    “Poppies in a Row” has a seemingly simple yet entrancing composition. The one smaller white blossom placed just there makes the picture feel like a well-crafted hiaku inside my head. That one white flower is the almost unexpected twist that goes “ahhh.”.

    “Spring has sprung” is like a dried flower found inside a yellowing book. It wants to tell the story of how it came to be there. “spring equinox 1” and “spring equinox 2” emerge as dreamscapes from dark fields. They are like enlarged color photos of nebulae.

    Is the 2012 copyright correct on these or do you already have these blooming? The orange poppies have set the yards on fire here.
    Alice
