Prince of the Pulpit

Frog, Tree Frog, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Macro, Garden
This small tree frog found a cozy spot in the shade between the stem and flower of a Jack-in-the-Pulpit plant.

I spotted this little guy on a recent trip to Missouri.  He seemed a bit disinterested in my presence.  It would have been nice if he would have turned toward the camera, smiled and offered a friendly wave.  He, obviously, wasn’t in a friendly mood.

Mayapples In the Rain

Mayapples, May Apples, Plant, Forest
We call these plants Mayapples. (Also known by many other names, as you can see below.)  I snapped this view on a hike thought the woods, during a very light rain.

In early spring, these lush green umbrella-like plants can fill patches of the forest floor.

Here’s some information available on Wikipedia

Podophyllum peltatum, commonly called Mayapple, or May Apple, (or hogapple, Indian apple, mayflower, umbrella plant, wild lemon (flavor of the fruit), wild mandrake, American mandrake (shape of rhizomes) or “devil’s apple” (used for Solanum linnaeanum elsewhere)), is a herbaceous perennial plant in the Family Berberidaceae, native todeciduous forests in of eastern North America. Like many other spring ephemerals, it emerges from below ground before the canopy of the forest opens, and then slowly withers later in the summer; the foliage is, however, somewhat more long-lived than other spring emphemerals such as Trillium.

Spring’s Serenade (textured effect)

I’ve been fiddling with my images lately.  (You might have noticed yesterday’s post – Morning Friends)

This image was originally posted last April (see Spring’s Serenade).  When I first posted it I shared it with some friends and mentioned I thought it would be a perfect image for a textured effect.  Well, I finally got around to trying one on.

It changes the feel of the bright, vivid original image.  You should look at both and see which you prefer.

Future Bleeding Hearts

New life is springing up all around our place…finally.  I had stepped outside to snap a view of the sunset and, as I often do, just walked around our yard with my camera.  The vibrant color of this new growth on the bleeding heart plants in our flower bed caught my eye.

Eventually the buds you see in the large photo above will produce flowers like the ones shown on the right.
