Today’s images are a follow-up to the December 22, 2005 entry for Garrya × issaquahensis ‘Pat Ballard’. I thought I should have a photograph of the flowers in full bloom as an accompaniment. The previous entry has some links about the plant from both botanical and horticultural perspectives, so I won’t add more for this entry.
Photography / art resource link: If you’re curious about the second image, I’ve used what Darwin Wiggett has called “Orton Imagery”. For a step by step guide on how to accomplish this with both film and digital images, Darwin has written Orton Imagery–A How To Guide for Photographers via Nature Photographers Online. You can also see the Orton of Orton Imagery here: Michael Orton Photography.
