Spring Beauty (Claytonia perfoliata) revisited.

9th April 2012: It has been a wet morning. The sky was full of low dark rain clouds. All the vegetation was dripping water. I was walking past the bed of Spring Beauty plants that I photographed in a previous post, on the track at the back of the rocket factory, only now the buds have opened.

    • Thanks, Ten. I use a Filson ‘Tin’ coat to keep me dry; it’s the only coat that is capable of handling the harsh marsh conditions year after years – it’s indestructible.

    • Thanks. I like the marsh, but this is no guarantee that you would like it also. However, I would like to think that you would like Wilden Marsh very much.

  1. Hi Mike, I’ve followed you back from your comment on Dezra’s portrait of the young woman, and I’m glad that I did. I must agree with her–you have a lovely eye for the fine natural beauties around you. Rather than leave three separate comments…I also particularly liked your Spring Beauty (April 9) and your swan taking flight (April 5), but–if you’ll permit me–I’d really like to see it with the highlights brightened to bring out the details hidden by the underexposure. Good work! –Gary

    • Thank you very much for your comment, Gary.

      That flying swan! It caught me out, and I didn’t have time to change my camera settings. I don’t think there are any highlights there to turn up. 🙂
