Spiderwort (a tradescantia species) is a native wildflower.

A dense clump of it grows in my spring wildflower garden between a hackberry and a pine tree.

They were given to me by my girl scout leader years and years ago. She had health problems and wanted me to have most of the flowers in her garden.

This picture shows just how dense the flowers grow.

I became intrigued by the shape, the color of the flowers, and with the number of those past bloom.

Obviously, the plants insist on having a long blooming time,

and I plan on enjoying it.

(I wrote this blog the middle of July, and the plants are still blooming.)

Fog Two Ways

The ground’s finally thawing after our last heavy snow … which wasn’t too long after the first heavy ice/snow event.

The warming and yesterday’s rain resulted in a dense fog this morning.

The truck’s headlights are near the edge of our yard. If you look close at the back end of our neighbor’s shrub row, you’ll see another semi coming toward us.

 It’s 9 a.m. and the fog still shows no sign of lifting.

 There’s fog and then there’s fog.

I took several pictures of the fog from the front porch at 6 o’clock this morning.

I set my camera on the low light setting and used the flash to take orb pictures. It can be a fun experiment.
