My First Passion Flower

  1. Hi All,

    My red passion flower, 'Lady Margaret', bloomed on Mother's Day!! Unfortunately, the first bloom is hidden amongst leaves and a trellis. The images will improve as the vine grows. Images captured with my 70-180 micro, handheld and processed in Lightroom...I've given up on NX for a while.

    large.

  4. You really make my day!! :biggrin: I have always used Nikon Capture to process my raw files. I purchased NX a few weeks ago and used it for several downloads. The new interface just doesn't work for me right now, so I am giving Lightroom a try. I really like it, so far... Much more to post as Spring progresses into Summer!!

    Thank you Gale. I am really looking forward to more blooms. Right now, I have a lot of buds, but the first bloom is obscured by the green metal trellis!! Ouch!! Oh well, more to follow...:biggrin:
     
  5. Gorgeous flower, Crystall! You are going to have so much photographing flowers all spring and summer!

    #1 is very nice. Be careful of those plants, still trying to kill one that 'went under" the house:).
     
  7. Hi Connie, thanks for the feedback. I am having too much fun. I just need to plant the butterfly bushes and tickseed and then I will be finished...almost. I also used a can of Burpee seeds to spread a sunny perennial mix in one of my trays. There's a bunch of seedlings growing like crazy, but I can't identify them!! :redface:

    Wow Jeff!! I would love it if this passiflora took over. Apparently the red passiflora is very sensitive to seasonal changes. I will need to take it indoors this Fall or start over next year. Hopefully the butterflies and humming birds will discover my garden soon. :biggrin:
