After a couple hours of pulling weeds from around the berry plants (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and some of the strawberries), I looked up from my task and noticed the trillium (Trillium grandiflorum) blooming. Well, I just had to get a photo or two of that — no matter that I’ve taken dozens of trillium photos in the past.
After capturing a closer shot of the trillium, I noticed an ant looking for dinner in the center of the blossom.
I observed the various ferns making their spring come-back . . .
Gardening Gone Wild’s photo contest this month is being judged by Rob Cardillo. I accepted the challenge to photograph the garden, landscape, woods, etc. using the “hard” light of a sunny day. My preference is to capture the plants either on a cloudy day (”soft and easy”) or close to sunrise and sunset. I am submitting the maidenhair spleenwort photo as my contest entry.
