  1. This is my view, after falling out of the tree . . .

  2. beautiful, the colors, the purpleness. reminds me of the quote
    “I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.”
    Alice Walker

  3. Gorgeous picture. It looks like a picture that should go with a poem by Emily Dickinson or someone similar :D

  4. Tremendous depth of field for one photo. Same principles apply in painting- where you’d want the detail in the foreground and larger, more vague strokes in the background.
    You’re an artist through the lens.

  5. tysdaddy? climb a tree? doubtful.
    Anyway, gorgeous color! Those spring colors don’t last long enough.

    • Arynsmom, I’m laughing cuz I was having trouble picture Brain climbing a tree, too! The high heat these past few days have just about exhausted the spring blooms!

  6. Pat – I can smell them! I can! Beautiful shot from the worm’s eye view. Even though I don’t really warm to purple, I must say I love it in nature because its strength is so arresting.

    • Epic! You must have a really, really good sense of smell (like all good cooks) because even when I’m inches away from these flowers, I can’t smell a thing!

  7. Reminds me of my mother’s garden. Always has hyacinths.

    • Chris, They are one of my favorite spring flowers because they last so long. Although this past few days of high heat has taken its toll! I don’t think they’ll be anymore muscari photos till next spring.

  8. Beautiful shot.

    I wish I could take at least 1 good shot of anything floral.

    I’m really not a pansy-boy, it seems.
