Chicory Blooming

Unfortunately the camera does not capture the rich colors of chicory flowers.[1, 2] This is one of those times I wish I had a higher resolution camera. The one I have is 8 MegaPixels which is great but 16MP or even, gasp, the new 25MP would let me see even more macro detail that I can’t see with my eyes in the real world. I do love getting closeups.

I had walked up the water line road to check the springs as the water flow to our upper ponds had slowed a bit. A little repair and maintenance and it was flowing well again.

The raspberries are just starting to produce ripe fruit. In a week or two we’ll be inundated. I’m looking forward to that bounty.

In other flowery news my mailbox tiger lilies are blooming too.

Daily Spark: Don’t panic – I’ve got a spare towel.
