Wisteria Macrobotrys after the Rain

Friday is a slow day and I have no Friday humor to share so here is a picture of one of my favorite spring flowers, wisteria. This was taken just after a torrential downpour:wisteria macrobotrys

February Flowers

Magnolia Blossom

People from colder climates come to the Bay Area and claim that we don't have seasons here. But that is not true. You can almost tell the day of the month from some of the trees around here. This Magnolia (I think it is Magnolia × soulangeana) in particular is like clockwork in the month of February. If I can remember to keep it up, I'll post something for each month.

This one lacks the delicate pink coloring because I dragged out my 64 year old 4x5 speed graphic to take the shot on black and white film. Click the image to go see a larger version.
