Bluebonnets and Paintbrush

FM306 between Purgatory Road and New Braunfels are a riot of color with bluebonnets and paintbrush and yellow flowers. This is the first time I’ve seen a lot of bluebonnets and paintbrush together.

Datura Twins (redux)

Datura Twins

This is a rework of a photograph of the back side of two datura flowers after a rain.  I brought out the natural texture of the flowers and then added a texture to the background to make the flowers stand out more.   The plant is sometimes called Jimson Weed and grows “wild” in our yard.  They bloom at night and attract Sphinx moths.  The caterpillars of this moth eat datura leaves, which are poisonous to humans and livestock.

Yellow Columbine

The early spring flowers are now in bloom. The blubonnets are past their prime. Here’s a garden flower, a yellow columbine. I’ve processed it with a Photoshop plugin called Fractalius to help bring out its structure.
