Spring blooms in Siouxland, Sioux City

11 May

It seems I have tried to get bulb plants to bloom in the spring time for many years without success. This past fall I planted a lot of bulbs. Replanted them again after the squirrels decided it wasn’t their stash I had “disturbed”.  And this spring I am successful. So I photographed a number of these blooms. I am not really sure what the various flowering plants are, nor I guess do I really care, it’s just nice to see them  embracing the change of the seasons. I recently completed teaching some basic adult photography courses at the local community college, sharing ideas with those students how to make better photographs and how to use an external speedlite to photograph subjects. Some of the blooms were photographed using an external speedlite off camera. Enjoy, and let’s hope that summer does not come too quickly this year.
