Phacelia campanularia ssp. vasiformis

Last week I brought the camera to Annie’s and went on a little photographing freak out one morning. I put all the new plants on the website, and am continually updating current plant descriptions and pics to make sure we have the hottest photo possible. Sometimes I even use my own pics, especially if the plant is brand new. This Phacelia is looking extra hot right now. I’m kind of surprised I never brought one home for the CA native middle.

Clarkia amoena ‘Aurora’

I think we might give that cute red flowered guy (Galvezia speciosa)  hiding behind the Clarkia shot in the empty spot where the Echium wildpretii was.

Dahlia 'Dark Side of the Sun'

Here’s a good example of my laziness with photoshop for our flickr pics. Click on this link to see the same picture digitally fluffed. It’s nothing major, just a little tweak here and there.  I rarely (never) bust out the photoshop on the pictures we upload to flickr. Here’s a couple more pretty pics. If you’re hankering for some more Annie’s Flower Floozy photo fun check out Floradora’s recent post with even more FABULOUS flowery pictures from Annie’s.
