Nice to have some fresh chives in the planter box. Remember to experiment with different crops while you are working on your photos. Cut out all the extraneous stuff … a good rule in your life, too.
This is a scan I did of tulip petals, placing them on the glass of my scanner.
Zooming in and playing around in Photoshop, I got the image below:

First a disclaimer: the tulip was not from our garden. I took 15 images, each focused at a different point and combined them to get this image that has enough depth of field to have all the tulip in focus.
A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.
I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

Along the Grand Ridge trail west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park. Tiger Lilies are a late summer blooming species. Of course, at over 5000′, winter lasts a long time and summer comes late.
Lupine and American Bistort are common wildflowers in the Olympic National Park. They can be frequently found growing together at high altitudes. Both favorites of mine, since it means I’m in the high country.
