Bloom Day!

Okay, I found an old memory card that worked in my camera and got a few pictures for Bloom Day. Unfortunately, it was kind of dark out, and the pictures have that awful blue-ish quality that happens when the light is low.

And I don't have anything new...same old boring stuff, but blue.

I can't not post tho'. Missing a Bloom Day isn't an option.

Cobaea scandens Cuphea sp.

Verbena lilacina Mystery bulb!

Dahlia Madia elegans

Abutilon Lypersicon lypersicum

Epilobium canum

Go find a whole slew of October Bloom Days in the comments at May Dreams.

Saw your little quiz down below - listen, if you want a vote for a new camera - go for it! Thanks for sharing your blossoms. Is that cobaea scandens? How long does it take to bloom for you - I grew it as an annual and it took seven months.

It took a long time to flower. It took a long time to grow. I talked about it here, http://back40feet.blogspot.com/2008/02/cobaea-scandens.html

I like your "weird blue" Bloom Day! Several of my shots were low light blue as well, but by the time I get home from work that's all I get.

Hi Chuck, I like the blue haze too, sory of mysterious and perfect for an October bloom day. You have lots of beauties too. New camera or new memory card. I have several cards, they are cheap, (walmart, they are just fine) even the ones that hold 1.o. I got them for the spring fling because I thought I might fill them up, but I have never come close to filling one.

See, that's what happens when you live in California. You feel obligated to post every Bloom Day. Here in the Midwest, it's no big deal to miss Bloom Day in December, January, or February. Personally, I like the blue tinge to the photos. I wish I could get a blue tinge to my photos. That last photo looks so cool, with the complementary colors of red & cyan. See, it's a good thing.

Hi Chuck,

I'm another one who likes that blue-ish cast to your photos.

Especially love the Cobaea and the Cuphea.

Blue is a color most gardeners try to get more of in their gardens! And great attitude! Yes, you can never miss bloom day, and I can't miss coming here to leave a comment!

It's always a treat to see what's blooming in the back 40 (feet).
