Ground Phlox...


I decided to update my profile photo to something more seasonal. Mike and I made it out onto the river for the first time this year on Sunday and the new profile photo is one he took of me paddling across the river. We saw a few nesting geese and also a bald eagle which was kind of exciting for the first trip out. Hopefully they'll be nesting this year, they took a break last year.
Todays photo is from my mothers flower garden from a few years ago. I like the way the single pink phlox stands out from the white and pink ones.

Hi John,
The plox are beautiful! I was having photographer block today. I thought about taking photos of the creeping phlox I bought over the weekend but decided it was too cold to go out this morning!!! So thanks for your beautiful photo!
Great new profile pic!!
Here's hoping you get your eagles!

I like the way it stands out, too. Beautiful image and a nice pattern. I also like your new profile image. Aha! Flowers, kayaking? I sense spring is in the air!! ;-)

John, I LOVE the phlox - reminds me of my grandmother - she had a bank in front of her house, that was completely covered. Beautiful image.

It's about time you got out of that winter coat and into a kayak! The phlox is beautiful.

Great photo John, I stopped by earlier and saw the new profile photo, but not this flower.. Beautiful. A celebration of standing out from the crowd. Would make a wonderful motivational poster..
