St John's Wort leaves and raindrops. Dublin, August, 2009.

HBW !!!

I used spot metering on this St John's Wort flower which gave the sky this incredibly intense blue. There is very little editing on this one - I lightened the yellow, used some clarity and noise removal, and cropped it a bit .

We had a wonderfully sunny morning in Dublin. And not a drop of rain since last night.

After a night of rain and gales, it was nice to go for my morning walk in warm sunshine. It was still windy, making outdoor flower photography difficult but I managed to capture this one.

St. John's Wort (Hypericum peferatum) growing wild in Seattle, Washington, USA. Hypericum (from the Greek hyper eikon) derives from the practice of hanging the flower over an icon to ward off evil spirits on St. John's day.

Most of these soil mats are dominated by pineweed (Hypericum gentianoides), a type of St. John's wort. Pineweed thrives in shallow soils and barren waste areas, and as its name suggests is often found in successional pine forests, usually growing alongside broomsedge and other native grasses.

Ever since we said our goodbyes

The onion rings, the phone makes me cry

Something isn't right

Like the Deep Blue without the Great White


In the morning open your eyes

The waterfalls, the fire flies

You're an abacus

And my heart was counting on us


Your heart's got a heavy load

There's still a long way to go

Keep your eyes on the road


Crescent moon sings me to sleep

The birches bark, the willows weep

But I lie awake

I'm adrift without a snowflake


Your heart's got a heavy load

There's still a long way to go

Keep your eyes on the road


Your heart's got a heavy load

There's still a long way to go

Keep your eyes on the road

St John's Wort, herb and flower, with wasps a dabbler in its exotic substances. Hypericum perforatum is an invasive plant species, grows rapidly. It is used to treat depression in humans, but has many side effects. Biologically, it can produce a lot of metabolic effects.



A bit rain-damaged, doesn't make it less appealing to me because it's not 'perfect'! Another type of beauty...

Again, all from my garden, a fragrant Rose, white Hebe, Yellow St John's wort (Hypericum), and some blue campanula, bell type flowers... again ala Victoriana...


With love to you and thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *)

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter

Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun, and I say

It's all right.

Saint John's Wort blossoms are like little sunbursts.
