Bokeh

(BO-KEH) refers to the quality of the blurring of the out-of-focus portion of an image, 

With a reflex (= mirror) lenses, it’s a doughnut bokeh: The blurring consists of “donuts,” round, circular patterns that ad an interesting twist to the overall image.

Granny’s Garden

My grandmother has the most beautiful shade garden. This was early March, so not every thing was in full swing yet. She lived in North West Oregon, Near Portland. I got the opportunity to visit it one last time.

Azalea
can you spot the kitty in the background?
The trees are soooo tall here

 The Theme is moss here, actually it was everywhere, even on the street curbs.

there is rock hiding under all this moss

For all  my Midwestern friends, THIS is what a Rhododendron is supposed to look like!

Happy Surprise

This morning, I went outside to check if my columbines had bloomed yet so I could get a picture. 
What I thought was my pink and white Grandma’s bonnet, which was what I had planted in that spot two years previous, was this….

Apparently my Magpie, a black and white columbine, has cross pollinated with Granny here and this is the happy result.  Sadly though, my grandma’s bonnet is nowhere to be found. I will have to start another one soon. 
I wonder though, if I saved the seeds from this new cross, if it would come back true or revert back to the Magpie, like most hybrids do…. Hmmm. 
I’ll let ya’ll know next year!

Happy May Day!

 
 
 
 May 1st arrived bright and sunny!
Even if the temperatures only made it to 55 degrees 
and it sprinkled later in the afternoon!
To celebrate, 
here are a few more pictures of what’s blooming in my garden.

Bleeding heart, Dicentra spectabilis

  
The tart cherry is finally fully bloomed!
Even Daisy was enjoying the sun!

Pop Quiz!

Okay, just for fun, 
Lets see how many of us gardeners know our plants!
I’ve arranged a little identification test for you of close ups and things just budding out. 
If you want to play, just leave your answers in the comments with the plant’s corresponding numbers
or just do them in your head!
No need for botanical names if you don’t know them- common names are fine.
If you do know the botanical names~ by all means, use them! 
You don’t have to do them all. 
You don’t have to do any.
There’s no points, grade, no score, no pressure!
It’s all for fun!
Oh, and there is an answer sheet. 
Follow the link at the bottom of the page to see the answers~ but do try not to cheat by looking first!

Have Fun!
