Dry Chicory

Lighting is everything. The camera can't always see what the eye does.

I could see it, cheery sky blue chicory in the fresh light of a cloudless morning.

It makes it hard to drive away. But chicory closes by noon. Morning pictures are the only option.

And before I go, the other half of the driveway bed has chicory seeding in.

The spikes of Yucca filamentosa are in bloom. I wait for the year when two dozen plants bloom in unison.

There were passing clouds when I got back home. A cloud covered sun makes for much better lighting. The Voodoo Lilies are rising.

Without the strong contrast of light and shadow, the garden is much more photogenic.

Flowers help.

Another look at the yucca.

Who knows why one blooms and the other doesn't. After blooming, that crown will die and new ones will grow from the bottom.

There are a few daylilies about. Sister #1 will be coming at just the right time.

It's going to be a busy weekend on the byway Uncle Ernie. Are you ready for your closeup?
